Allow me to preface the following diatribe with the fact that I did not approach this beer with an open mind. Following the Backstreet Brewery "Pink Stink" incident a while back, I swore to take a break from this particular style. It's not that I don't like or appreciate a good Berliner Weiss, it's just I wasn't prepared for what transpired on that particular occasion. With this being said, I wasn't at all disappointed by this offering from the Bruery.
A- The beer pours a hazy white/yellow color with champagne-like carbonation. This head dissipated rather quickly, as would champagne head. My duff shaker pint was not the appropriate glassware but nobody's perfect on Sunday.
S- Citric acidity of meyer lemon zest, sourdough bread, slight but detectable funk.
T- Slight sour character upfront, which almost immediately subsides into a very bready malt flavor. Berliner Weiss for beginners would be my first reaction.
M/D - Very light in body and quite sessionable. Could have been a bit more adventurous in the sour/funk department but a good Berliner for the uninitiated.
