750ml bottle poured into a The Bruery tulip.
A: Poured a very pale light yellow, with some haze to it. Has some very fine bubbles that kind of remind me of champagne. The head is really frizzy/bubbly. The head color was a nice bright white, with about 2 fingers worth from the pour.
S: A lot of malty wheatness with a bit of zesty lemon behind it. Definitely has the scent of a good ole wheat beer.
T: The aroma and taste have no real correlation. It was very light, with some major notes of lemon lime, has some real acidic characters all around actually.
M: Nicely carbonated, the after taste is very acidic but at the same time kind of refreshing.
O: A pretty straight forward basic sour. For the cost of it, very much worth it. Wonder if age really does do anything to this though.

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.
