At VT Brewfest. I'm assuming it was on tap.
A-Poured a milky but bright yellow color.
S-Tart and straightforward as far as the style goes, at least in the aroma. Tart lemon, some barny stuff, wheat, grains.
T-Dry, sour lemon flesh. Powdery wheat. Pale, nondescript malt. Lightly spicy. Lactic flavor.
M-Super light bodied. Crisp and refreshing. Some lingering tartness.
O-Plenty of pop for such a light alcohol/bodied Berliner. A well done Berliner Weisse that doesn't have much individuality.

Enjoyed at Station Ho.st.
Looks like lemonade, almost limeade. White foam reminds me of the topping of lemon meringue pie. Nice lemon aroma (using that word often). Ultra tart yet doesn't linger too long which is good and makes it refreshing. Full on flavor of lemon. Feel is amazing and alive. Could drink gallons of this.

On tap at Station HO.ST. From notes.
A - Cloudy yellow pour with one finger of white head that went fast. No lace and no retention. It seemed to style, but I never think that any beer looks good without head and lace.
S - Tart aroma, grape, grass, lemon.
T - Way more tart than the aroma would lead you to believe. Lemon candy, grapey mustiness. Lovely stuff.
M - Good carbonation, medium body, tart and dry finish.
O/D - A good Berliner Weiss. Quite drinkable and had a good tartness that wasn't too strong. Good stuff.

On-tap at Station Ho.St in Montreal
Beer is a very cloudy yellow. A small white head dissipates quickly.
Nose strongly contains tart lemon. Also some wheat. A clean but sour smell.
Taste is quite sour- lambic levels rather than Berliners that I am familiar with. The sourness has a real lactobacillus flavour, a bit yogurt-like. Wheat and tonnes of tart lemon. Very refreshing.
Light bodied, moderately carbonated. Seems more carbonated than it is, if that makes sense. Refreshing.
Overall, quite nice. Great on a summer day.
