12 oz bottle. Aroma is pungent with lacto; also, tomatillo, dough, grain, faintly vegetal. Pours hazy golden with a disappearing small white head; beer looks completely flat a minute after pouring. Taste is mouth puckering sour (4/5 on a sour scale) with flavors matching the aroma. A bit of salt in there (I thought this was a Berliner, not a Gose?). A tad oxidized maybe. I can't find a date, but I have reason to believe it's a bit old. Very interesting and mostly tasty, though. ads135 (5319) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 27, 2018
I like this beer. Creative use of a unique ingredient. Musty vegetal character in the aroma and aftertaste. Nic amount of lemon zing and lingering saltiness. jgb9348 (6773) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 10, 2018
Slightly hazy copper and bronze coloured body with a large white head that fades incredibly fast to absolutely nothing on top. Aroma of sour funk, some dry malts, a touch of light candy sugars and a dose of mellow guava, passionfruit and a dose of pears and apples. Light-bodied; Strong grassy and very herbal flavour with a light soured and dry flavour of pears, apples and pineapple are all noticable, but a mellow malt and wheatie kick near the end make this relatively approachable for lovers of any style. Aftertaste shows mostly a dry and lightly soured beer with a touch of fruits (mostly apples and pears) with a bigger dose of wheat and coriander seed and a touch of soured funk from the yeast on the tail end. Overall, a relatively nice and soured beer with a moderate complexity, but not too much in terms of depth or pungency and unfortunately, definitely not worth the high purchase price. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from BeerTopia in Omaha, Nebraska on 01-October-2017 for US$5,49! sampled at home in Washington a few hours after returning from Omaha again on 09-February-2018.

Unique and very sour, wasn't sure what to expect. Decent Berliner. Decent drinkability. Worth a try for fans of the style. Thanks Jason B. HuskerTan (2569) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - NOV 7, 2017
A- Stewed peppers, vegetal, slightly sour, salt water.
A- Gold color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Stewed peppers, salty, sour, tart, citrus.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, tart finish.
O- A unique idea no doubt. It's a valiant effort that works but doesn't wow. There is no question this is a Berliner with the amount of tartness and salt content. The tomatillos add a unique touch as I said, but it's nothing remarkable. wlajwl (7424) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Aroma is slightly odd sweetness/tomatillos and fruit. The flavor is fruit, slight vegetables, malts and mix of strong tartness and mild spiciness in the finish. NachlamSie (3665) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2017
12 oz bottle from Mile High. This is a clear yellow beer with a very small, fizzy head. Aroma is sharp and sour with notes of lemon and crackers. Not much else going on. The palate is light and spritzy with a decent sour kick with each sip. The tomatillos start to come out a little bit in the flavor and it makes a lot of sense with this acidity. It's a simple kettle sour without any huge flavor going in one way or the other, but it's clean and refreshing. rougeau13 (3373) - Richmond, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2017
Bottle. Hazy golden with a whitish head. Aroma of spice, sour lemon, and cucumber. Tastes moderately tart and fruity with a hint of salt. Crisp and light-medium bodied. Pretty good Berliner.
