Appearance: a dark orangish yellow. very bubbly with some ivory colored foam created but none sticks around. very hazy and opaque. not a very appetizing look

Smell: sour, lemon, and a grassiness

Taste: opens up with slightly mouth puckering lemon. some wheaty and grassy characteristics but those are muted by the lemon. strong acidity.

Mouthfeel: very effervescent, medium strength sour and slightly heavy for only 3%. not as refreshing as i'd like and very acidic

Overall: I love the idea of this beer, a 3% refreshing sour beer for the summer. but the execution falls short for me. It doesn't look very good, the smell comes off too grassy, and its overly acidic

Pours an interesting looking hazy straw color with very minimal head but lots of fine suspended sediment particles. Smell is lemon, yeast, and tonic. You can smell the sour. Taste is very light, like drinking tonic water with lemon zest, some grassy notes, and wheat. Decently sour, but not puckeringly so. Feel is great! This is light, refreshing, easy to dink with high carbonation that enhances the sour taste. Great beer, super easy to drink. Good pizza beer.

This is a very underrated beer. I think because of the price point and ABV level. Everyone seems to give big points to rare beers just because they are rare and high in ABV. I think this is my summer fishing beer for the future. I drank a lot of this. It has a perfect amount of sour to it and drinks very refreshing. I also enjoyed the nose a lot. Next time you see it give it a try. It is a wonderful Berliner Weiss.

A - pours a cloudy straw color with minimal white head, weak placing and retention. Not out of line for the style

S - Sour and slightly yeasty, banana and clove

T - tons of sour lemony flavors, not a ton else bit very good

M - lighter bodied, superiorly drinkable
