3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle generously shared by a kind soul at the Tampa Crew Tasting. Pours a dark hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is vinegar, prickly citrus, grain, and a nice lacto character. Flavor follows the nose: tart citrus, grain, and a bit of a chalky finish. Very nice beer, unique for sure.

Thanks Aaron! Pours a semi-cloudy light straw color. Light cheesiness in the background with some light lactic acid. Flavor has touch of cheese along with moderately-brisk acidity and a nice backing wheat character. Very light and dry.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a translucent yellow gold with no head. Aroma of funk, lacto and lemons. Taste is sour, slight funk and oaky, sour wheat also present. This might overtake tartare as the most sour Berliner that I've ever had. It's really nice, I'm so glad I got to try this.

Bottle... This beer rocks!Ö Hazy straw-colored ale with a miniscule white head that disappears in a blink. The aroma provides oak and lots of fruity, citric acidity. Light-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is citric and quite sour. Crisp, tart, clean finish. Excellent true-to-style Berliner weisse from a brewery that Iíve quickly grown to love and respect. Bottle generously shared by landhoney!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Baileyís. Bright gold, close to pastel with a low head that quickly went to lace then disappeared. Funky acid nose more brett than Berliner. Lemon, light yogurt. Light and crisp flavor, again, more funky and bretty but nice flavor for a 3.8% beer. Lemon, yogurt, funk. Good, not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Saravezaís IIPA Fest to cleanse the palate, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of lightly tart light fruits and quite dry wheat. Flavour is refreshingly tart, never overbearing in tartness, quite yeast, tart and wheaty. Finishes tart, light and wheaty. Very refreshing and well-made for a style I donít normally appreciate.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled on tap at Belmont Station at Puckerfest. Pours a faint yellow in color with a half a fingers worth of head. Nose is a balance of wheat and very gentle lemon. Flavor is similar to the nose, itís wheat up front and a good amount of lemon on the back. Very pleasant and easy drinking. Light mouthfeel, gentle tartness, and a moderate finish. Great example of a classic Berliner, I could drink gallons of this. Hopefully they bottle this in the future.
