Bottle from Jan '09.

Pours a very bright straw color with a huge head that sticks around for a while. It's got an awesome lactic aroma. Very crisp smelling. If you told me this were a Berliner I'd believe it. The flavor only solidifies the previous statement. Super clean lactic flavor with a kiss of brett. I love the wheat in this beer. Awesome. Incredibly drinkable. Well done.

3.65/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

750ml bottle into a standard pint glass. The brew appears a pale yellow with some fine particulate stuck in suspension. A fluffy white head sits atop with patchy fingers of lace sticking to the glass. Pretty solid head retention for the style.

The smell is lemony with some wheat and footy grain quality. An earthy brett scent is present focusing the aromatics more towards earthy and somewhat barnyard-like. More sniffs reveal a bit more fruited quality and a bit of spice.

The taste includes a solid amount of wheat along with fruity lemon. Some suggestions of pear mingle with a faint clove-like spice. As more sips are taken, more brett comes forward somewhat like cobwebs, earth and barnyard qualities.

This is a light bodied brew with a light amount of carbonation. Fairly refreshing with an interesting funk inclusion of brett. This was a good beer, it just misses the berliner style a little with its focus on funk. For an american wild, its solid for a berliner, i was happy with just one pour.
