A shocker in so many ways! Tart, crisp, springy, fizzy -- just an absolute delight. The sparkling Riesling grapes really sing over the smooth wheat flavor. I served with an alfredo pasta with tomatoes -- delicious!

12oz bottle thanks to Darrel. Pours out a straw color topped with a small head. Nose is lemon grass spice citrus and a nice light funk. Taste is as the nose with more of the citrus notes and a nice refreshing touch on the end.

Syndicate hooked me up with this gem tonight as I was walking out of the Summer Funkfest tasting.... Thanks a bunch Darrel!! Poured into my Funkfest goblet... pale hazy straw colored brew.. nice white head with good lacing. Nose is a proper Berliner... floral and lemony... hints of wheat.. smells nicely acidic. Flavor is fantastic... big clean lactic/lemon wedge acidity combines with a light wheat malt essence.. long and lingering lemon on the finish. Light body with spritzy high carbonation ... the residual maltiness weighs it down slightly IMHO... but I am nitpicking. This is amazingly drinkable... I could sup this one all day or at least until my gut broke down or the cavities drove me away. Thanks again Darrel... I appreciate it!!

Clear, clean pale and white. Gummy sweety and buzzing fermentage vibe. Building foamy carbonation aids to this weird Fruit Gum sourness that kicks on. Very clean, delicious and tremendous juice-like mouthfeel. Scrambled citrus finish.

Pours very light yellow, a bit hazy, huge head. Nose is white grapes, wheat, barnyard, a bit sour, hay, a little lemon, a little sulphur. Taste is wheat, white grape, lemon peel, barnyard/funk a little sour, a lot of lemon on the finish, and also dry at the end. Very alive, bubbly, effervescent. Best example of the style I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

As you open the bottle the foam shoots out here, the beer cannot get into your glass quick enough. The aroma is reminiscent of apples and fresh cut lemons. Pours a tantalizing straw color. Thick head retention, as per the foam that gushes out from the opening. This is a wonderfully balanced berliner weiss with an emphasis on a restrained tartness and refreshing citrus and apple tone. Some banana and sugar on the back end, with a yeasty undercurrent. A superb beer.
