4.04/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

From a 750 ml bottle into a pint glass.

A-The brew is much cloudier than most Berliners, but still light straw/yellow in color. The head is pretty short and quick to fade. No lacing. Surprisingly still-looking in the glass.

S-The smell is very tart and lactic, even compared against other Berliners. I get some lemon and a funky, earthy, spicy wheat. Good intensity, if a bit simple.

T-The taste, like the smell, is massively tart. There is more doughy/bready malt flavor than most beers of the style, but the big lactic tartness makes for a pleasing, drinkable balance. Lemon is the primary flavor, but a funky, earthy wheat is also present.

M-The feel is a bit heavy for the style and the carbonation is a little soft and fine, but the brew is not thick or dense.

O-This is an interesting, flavorful take on the Berliner style. The lemony sourness is quite puckering, but it works well against the full body of this beer. The brew packs a lot of flavor for just over 3% and doesn't need any syrup to keep it interesting. That being said, this Berliner is the lightest or most refreshing I have had because of the big taste and body.

4.26/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours hazy light golden yellow in color

Smell has boys of lemon, sweet tarts, and some light grainy aromas.

Taste is moderately tart with nice candy like sweetness and a lemony tartness to balance.

Light bodied and sticky from the sour.

Overall very well balanced and drinkable. Perfect amount of sweetness and tartness
