Tastes like the after taste of a war head. Very bitter. Easy drink. Low alc level. No complaints but not blown away either, 4/5 is a fair assessment. Almost tastes like champagne. If I want to continue my night can't go for 9% so it's a very solid option at one mile house

The beer has heavy wheat flavors with tart qualities of lemon and kumquat. Lots of unsweetened Sprite and Mountain Dew come through. A medium mouthfeel.

A really wonderful berliner weisse.

Murky gold, not much lacing. Smell yeast and wheat. Taste lemon, wheat, bubble gum. Medium body, clean, very tart finish. Tart!

Batch No. 136.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with wheat, grain, lemon, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour wheat, grain, and lemon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is light and tasty, but the sourness is pretty subdued compared to the "intensely sour" claim on the label.

Serving type: bottle.
