4.35/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into imperial pint
Slight vinegary aroma
Head average (4 cm), white, fizzy, quickly diminishing to nothing
No lacing
Body light yellow, hazy
Flavor is very tart and lemony, nearly pucker-able, but light with no alcohol, no hops, no malt, and no diacetyl
Palate is light to medium, watery, lively carbonation

This a very tart, refreshing Berliner Weise. The rapidly diminishing head and lack of lacing are the only detrimental aspects for me.
