4/5 rDev -0.7%
Pours a murky copper with a small head that disappears almost instantly.
Smells of honey sweet pilsner malt and pears.
Taste is up front sweet pilsner malt that goes into a pear/peach acidic, sour bite that lasts through the middle and ends on a slightly bready malt profile. Really pleasing and to style.
Medium body and medium carbonation works well enough.
This is a damned solid beer that represents the style well, including the funky, sweaty, bile sour characteristic. I'll get it again.

22oz bottle with a QR code on the front label, $6. Nice cloudy yellow color. Smells wheaty and possibly tart. The flavor was quite good, wheat, sour lemon (but subtle), citrus, yeast. Very easy to drink and now I'm really interested in the style. Overall, a good tart wheat beer.

A: Hazy lemon-yellow with a crazy, fizzy head--this sounds like Alca-seltzer but eventually fades to no head with just tons of bubbles shooting to the surface; no lacing
S: Wow, this is tart and grainy and grassy; this smells like lemons and apples but also like grainy bread; it is sour and a bit funky--can't wait to drink
T: Not as sour as aroma indicated but still a pleasant lemon/apple/banana tartness followed by a grainy, grassy, bready quality; this beer is quite refreshing but it does fade rather quickly leaving a thin, dry finish
F: A tad thin for my taste and the beer nearly vanishes toward the finish but as you drink the thinness becomes less and less bothersome
O: This is a refreshing beer; I wish it had a bit more body and was a bit more sour but it's a nice tart, slightly fruity berliner weisse nonetheless

cool take on a wheat beer. pours a hazy straw color with a tall white head. smells like typical hefe yeast and a nice sour beer combined into one. flavor is tart and sour at first, but mellows of with some citrus flavors and a flowery hop finish. feel is excellent, really fizzy carbonation compliments the sour flavor, and its light enough to drink a couple of. this beer has a lot of culinary potential too. glad i picked this one out

22oz bottle. Pours a clear (with hazy second pour) straw yellow with a fizzy white head that quickly diminishes to a thin film and then disappears.
The aroma is musty hay and some dry fruity sourness.
The flavor is wheaty malts with some sweet sugary fruits (apple and lemon), some champagne notes and a lot of tart sourness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some spritzy carbonation.
Overall, a nice light sour. I liked this better on tap.
