750 ml bottle, 3.1% abv. Pours a slightly hazy, pale straw color. Fizzy white head holds together for a few minutes, trickling to a thin ring.

Sour and slightly lactic in the nose. Some hay, and slight barnyard aroma. Some fruity notes. Herbal and earthy hop nose.
Sharp tartness up front, without being puckering. Some fruity notes blend in well. Dries at the finish.

Light body. Spritzy carbonation. Is there really alcohol in here? Very refreshing, with a bit of complexity. Very well made.

A: Really nice looking almost clear color. It was kind of weird. Under some light it would look a little yellow but then it would almost look like super watered down milk.

S: Kind of a tight nose. Little bit of clean wheat.

T: Very clean wheat taste. A touch of tartness but not nearly what I was expecting.

M: Very light. Perfect for the style.

D: All day long. Super easy drinking. Just wish it was a little bit more tart.

Poured a very cloudy white, one of the lightest colored beers I have ever seen.

The smell is very light and tart with a light sweetness.

The first drink is very acidic and sour, but this really fades as you drink it becoming very light and wheaty with a light sourness being relegated to the finish.

The mouthfeel is light and acidic with some mild carbonation.

A very light easy drinking beer, the mild sourness adds some nice character to the subtle wheat notes.

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!

750ml, spring 2013
The Bruery tulip

A: Completely cloudy faded yellow color. Lots of carbonation streaming up the sides of glass. Thin layer of bright white tight bubbled head.

S: Definitely getting some tart acidic notes on the nose. Grainy hop aromas and wheat hints. Lactic character.

T: Nice tartness up front. Prickle right on tip of tongue. Not quite sour. Mid palate that wheat character comes in. Soft yogurt like lactic note. Grainy flavors. Finish is crisp dry and refreshing. Nice Berliner for sure.

M: Light leading to medium bodied. High carbonation.

Appearance - Deep straw. No head whatsoever.

Aroma - Wheat, lactic, straw

Taste - Green apple, lactic tartness, wheat, and a lingering aftertaste of... Belgian waffles?

Mouthfeel - It's good.

Overall - I really, really like this!
