Draft: Poured a hazy light yellow color ale with a small foamy head with limited retention. Aroma consists of funky notes with some tart notes also easily identifiable. Taste is also dominated by funky notes with some lactic notes and a tart finish. Body is about average for style with medium carbonation. I love the tart refreshing notes in this beer but I could have done with a little less funky yeasty notes.

Only being able to fit a third of the bottle in the glass, the body is a crystal clear golden straw. The CO2 level looks aggressive, constantly fueling the three fingers of whipped, rocky paper white head. Chunky legs of lace hold tightly to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

The nose is pleasant. Plenty of melon skin with a sweet and syrupy core. A little phenolic with some medicinal notes easy to pick up. Lemon peel and a drop of vinegar tickle the nose and assure you this is in fact a berliner weiss.

Its sweet melon notes move to the back as the staple characteristics of the style assert themselves. A sweet flash at the front of the tongue is all I get. Freshly squeezed lemon juice, the tartness from the wheat and the dryness from its acetic quality grasps the palate, pinching the sides of the cheeks. Subtle hints of biscuit creep into the finish as its sourness nears an end.

The portion of wheat used in the malt bill gives its light body a bit of density and creaminess. Without it, I could see its sourness getting a bit out of hand. Its spritzy level of carbonation and dry finish makes this quite refreshing.

A fantastic summer quencher. It's clean, straight shooting and has every quality in the book that makes it refreshing. I would have loved to have seen its melon quality translate more from the nose to the taste. C'est la vie as the Quebecers say. The label artwork is outstanding.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: It has a nice hazy yellow color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of tart citrus/lemon, melon, some wheat and light funk.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a lemony tartness upfront, some melon, wheat malts, light grass and a faint acidity.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. A very refreshing Berliner Weiss, I was hopping it would be slightly more tart but the flavors work great as they are.

Nose of light citrus and yeast.
In mouth, it's very tart. High carbonation but aromas of green apples and citrus take place quiclky.
Moderate acidulated bitterness.
Great beer overall. Tasty, fruity and refreshing
