Cloudy tan, tart lacto character, some sweet malts, touch of tartness, not a lot of complexity , yeasty, but at least a little refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… 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 I’ve 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 Bailey’s. 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 Saraveza’s 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 don’t normally appreciate.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared in Great Taste Ticket Line 2013 (Madison, WI). Thanks, Nate! Pours a hazy straw pour, good mellow glow, straw grain, some yellow. Frothy whitish head dies to a ring, laces small. Aromas offer some nice apple, sour lemons and bretty funk. Yogurty sourness, funk, and straw. Gentle oak, yogurt, funk and bigger sour fruit, crab apple and lemon. Initial is lighter end of the fold, nice sour lemon kick, some orange, lactic elements. Front end if firmly sour, trailing into a mellow dry grainy middle. Yogurty, some funk, straw. Crab apples, mellow yeast, firm funk. Oak and bigger lactic sour twang. Some cheesecloth and funky elements into that backend, lots of cheese, funk, and twangy sour finish. Really impressive front end, fruity and rich with good sourness, gets really cheesy for me as we finish up. Pretty solid.

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.

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.
