Had a glass at the Goose Island Clybourn brewpub.
Cloudy yellow with a minimal head.
Aroma is lemon and a bit of vinegar.
This beer just tasted off to me. There was the appropriate lemon tartness but that was followed up with an unpleasant vinegar note that didn't seem to belong. Not entirely pleasant.
Light body, thin carbonation for the style.
Overall, I would not drink this again.

Served in a heavy goblet at Goose Island Clybourn, quick review from notes.

Hazy yellow with an odd brownish tint in certain light, thin fizzy skim fades away very fast. Some carbonation visible, but not the champagne streamers you'd expect.

Sharp aroma with a little bit of sulfur present.

Tart lemon, crisp and dry in the aftertaste. Very quenching and refreshing, it's light bodied and very drinkable. Could use a bit more carbonation, but it's still enjoyable.

@ GI Wrigleyville

Translucent dark straw color with a quick to vanish thin head. Looks like most berliners.

Lemon zest and light grain aroma.

Pretty mild on the tart scale. Lemon, Sweetarts. Very soapy. Weak lemonade and soap.

It was 95 degrees, I was stoked to go to a Cubs game and the GI brewpup. They could have given me tap water and I would have been happy. At 2.7% they almost did. Soapy tap water.

On tap at the Wrigley outpost. Served in a 12 oz snifter for $6. Beer is a hazy straw with a dense white head.

Nose of grains and some lemon rind funk.

taste is tart but not overwhelming. Light citrus and a bit grainy to go along with the tartness. It really hit the spot on a humid summer day.

The mouth is slick and slightly coating, could use a bit more carbonation, but the beer is refreshing a very easy to drink.
