Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is lemon and other citric acids. Flavor is again a very lemony tartness with lots of carbonation. Finish leaves a tart but not overly sourness on the tongue. Very refreshing and palate cleansing.

On tap at GTMW 2013 - Pours hazy yellow with a white ring of head. Nose is lightly sour and wheaty, with a touch of vinegar and some tropical fruit. Taste is real smooth, with light sour wheat and a bit of tartness. Smooth and well carbonated.

Pretty sour and tart at first but no lasting aftertaste. Not bitter at all. Hazy. Pretty good.

Strykzone (4910) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2013
On tap at Handle Bar. A tellowish beer that is hazy. Some white foam. This is a tart beer which is what a Berliner aweiss should be. Yeast, lemon, tart apples, more complex fruits. At times it is a little funky and at yomes it is a cider. It is always tart. Good, too.

Tap at the brewery, pours a pale cloudy yellow with a bubbly white head, the aroma is a little funky on the front side of it with some yeast and fruit as well, the flavor has a good tart front end with a clean finish, really nice mouthfeel through out the entire drink, tart and refreshing at the same time.

Had on draft at brewery. Poured a hazy yellow with small head and decent lacing. Aroma was slightly tart with wheat and hint of lemon. Light tartness in taste with a wheat tang and a little graininess. Mouthfeel was smooth and light bodied with a crisp carbonation. Finished semi dry. Was offered flavorings at tasting room but glad I declined. This beer was refreshing and quaffable and stood up just fine on its own. Would love to have this as a summer session beer.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Draft at Urban Chestnut. Pours a hazed straw with a thin head that vanishes. Nose is lactic acid and clean. Loads of wheat. All lactic with not much else going on. On tasting, seems a bit different from a classic Berliner. clean lactic acid, light body. Almost gose like without the salt. Very wheaty but could use a touch more acid.Nice.

vyvvy (3951) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Pours lightly hazy pale yellow with a small white head. The aroma has smooth wheat, acidic tartness, lemon and far more of a smooth malt character than expected. It has a medium / light body that starts smooth and ends crisp with micro carbonation. The flavor is much sharper than the aroma with lemony tartness and a sharper wheat flavor. The finish has some spiciness and more pronounced tartness. Very clean and crisp. Nice take on the style.

Probably the best beer I have ever enjoyed. I have always enjoyed sour beers, but often find them over the top. Tis beer was perfect. Enjoyed at their tap room with is awesome.
