Draft. Hazy golden-orange color with a large foamy white head. Nice fruity aroma, big, wheaty, and tart with kumquats at the forefront. The flavor is nice and tart with a prominent kumquat note, lemon, and wheat. Great crisp and light palate with lively carbonation. Even better than the regular Berliner weisse.

On tap at Mohawk Bend in Echo Park. Super strong kumquat aroma, the best part of this beer. Taste is super fruity but way too grassy on the backend--same problem I have with hottenroth.

This is light and fruity. Pours a light hazy yellow. Pleasing fruit aroma. Would like to try this on a snow cone. Another person drinking it thought it was like an Italian soda and I agree.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 On tap at Provisions (full pint finally). Pours with a hazed yellow body with a medium sized white head. Aromas are fruity, floral, grainy, mild acidity, zesty, wheat and kumquats. Seems like their is still some lactic acid in the nose in addition to the citric kumquats. Medium esters. Flavors are medium tart, floral, zesty and fruit. Tartness lingers a bit on the palate and makes this beer very thirst quenching. Lively bubbles with a dry, not too thin finish. Very drinkable, insanely characterful for a 2% beer, and very enjoyable.
I’ve had this many times since and felt I should bump up the score. Killer session beer, insanely drinkable and characterful!

The pour is a cloudy straw color with a small white head. A very strong kumquat aroma and just very citric overall. There is a mild grass and quite a bit of citrus peel aroma. Somewhat reminiscent of orange and grapefruit juice. The flavor starts off with sweet citrus and a mild acidity that intensifies as the beer warms up. Lots and lots of kumquat with a fair amount of grapefruit as well. A touch of grass some yeast and lots of wheat, though not a very malty flavor.
