Not a particularly inventive version of the style, but this is a summertime style that I’ve come to love, so a classic played right down the middle is exactly what I like.
This beer is hazy, pale yellow with a thin rim of foam. Lemon and salt are all over the aroma, with a little sweet, banana-like character in the background. The flavor is really tart front to back, and the finish is bright and clean. Goes down really easy. hershiser2 (4047) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2017

Hazy yellow, slight head fades - on tap at Mekong. Aroma is wheat, light lemon citrus. Flavor matches, wheat, touch of lemon, lightly acidic. Really very nicely done. Good example of the style, enjoyed it. Perhaps almost too light for my pho. JBPortland (1588) - Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2015
On tap at the brewery, pours clear pale straw yellow with thin finger of head. Served in a little plastic cup in the tasting room, interesting choice of serving vessel at your own brewery...nose is soft, not much there, some light doughy lemon and hints of field grain. Taste is lighy bodied, low acidity, subtle minerality, pleasant lemon and cereal and a light lacto cheeseyness. Finishes with low tartness, floral lemon zest, some cereal grain lingers briefly. Decent enough berliner.

Draft at the brewery. Grainy, light lemon, lightly soured, really light bodied. Palate is a little bit square, but good. tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2015
