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.

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.

This brew pours a cloudy, lemony-yellow, with no head (draft) and no noticeable lacing. Floral and citrus notes intermingle with tart and sweet aromas, with a light funk present as well. Tart and refreshing, Berliner Weisse hints at green apples, wheat, lemon, and pepper. Light and flavorful to start, puckering tartness in the finish, this beer features a medium-light body with spritzy carbonation. We are not fans of adding syrups, fruit, or what have you to ANY beer, and this amazingly complex, tart, and refreshing brew is an example of what you might miss if you did.
