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, it’s 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.
