look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance
Pale straw with 2 fingers of white head. Hazy with moderate-heavy carbonation.

Nose
Lactic sourness, lemon juice and wheat.

Taste
Lactic sourness along with lemon juice and tangy wheat. There’s a hint of strawberry sweetness. Finishes with a touch of chestnut as well as a Warheads candy essence.

Mouthfeel
Light bodied, crisp, tart and refreshing.

Overall
This is a fantastic Berliner! $9.60 for a sour that you can drink all day? RIGHT ON!

On tap at Stone. Thanks for driving me there, Carlos, you truly are a wonderful host!

A: Light golden yellow with brilliant clarity, a thick fluffy head that disappears a little quickly

S: Light, bready and tart, pleasantly so. Lactic sourness is present, and unless my nose is deceiving me, there's some brett character too. Great stuff

T: Opens light, bready with a pleasant tartness. Lemony with a slight green apple character. Finishes refreshingly dry

M: Light with a nice dextrinous palate that adds a little body to the tartness and dryness. Crisply carbonated, great finish

D: This is truly quaffable, I need a sixtel!

Serving type: on-tap

Light blond color.
Frothy/foamy head settles to a thin patchy head with some lacing.

Huge fragrant nose. Mealy, grainy, round, slightly toasted aroma. Hint of lemongrass & fresh Ialian semolina bread.
Wonderfully fresh, fruity/flowery & slightly lactic.

On the palate: Very light body with pretty big flavor.
Fresh, slightly sharp lactic, lemon/lime, grainy wheat. Slightly sour - which fades from mid-palate to finish.

Clean. Lots of flavor & great balance.

This is a wonderful, characterful, big flavored brew.
You feel like you could drink this stuff all day ... if necessary!?!

. . . @ 3.1% ABV, maybe you could!

93 Points

Amazing brews coming out of this place!

CHEERS!
