look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Reviewed from a glass poured on tap at the Bruery Tasting Room.

A - pale, thin, and very cloudy. The head was champagne-like and dissipated quickly leaving little to no lacing.

S - the sour and funk are present in large quantities with corn, lemon, green apples. Others I was with said it smelled overpoweringly "eggy", however I could only get a hint of DMS.

T - The sourness and funk are right on target. The alcohol is only ~3% - refreshing and puckering at the same time.

M - tart, dry, light, refreshing.

D - excellent! This is my favorite berliner weisse. The nose is a little off, but overall a great example of the style.
