boy was I reluctant to pay 9 bucks for 12 ounces of 3% beer, but the bruery is the bruery, and I am a sucker, so I let it rip down at jake's in downtown Littleton. not as pale as most berliners, its got just a hint of darker malt color to it and a lacey little white head. smells lacto sour, lemons and acid, but I smell more than wheat as a grain. maybe a touch of rye or something in the copper family making it just a little more interesting than the generic. wild yeast and bacterial fermentation are obvious from the outset. citric funk dominates above the lightest grain bill ever. what I like though is that touch of something other than white wheat. it gives the beer a desirability all of its own, I don't need woodruff or cherry syrup for this, I want it on its own. ultra light in body, carbonated like soda, this is a really odd sensation. so acidic and low in alcohol it would be a chore to get drunk from it, but I guess that's the point. authentic with a twist, another winner from the bruery.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a snifter. Purchased in Attleboro, MA.
Appearance - pours a super hazy, sunny yellow body with a decent sized white head that reduces fairly quickly to leave no lacing.
Markell - quite yeasty, bready upfront, tart citrusy, honey, banana, light fruit on the follow through.
Taste - big green apple, tart lemon-lime, raw yeast, bread, berries, banana. Follow through is acidic and dry, lemony.
Mouthfeel- high carbonation, light body. Refreshing
What a nice, easy, complex beer. Nice flavor nice price, easily drinkable. Recommended.
