4.19/5 rDev +3.5%
Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into an Upland pint glass.
A: Pours a very, very hazy yellow to light gold. Forms a half-finger of white head that fades quickly, and low visible carbonation.
S: Tart, lemony, and a bit funky and yeasty. Wheat malt with some grainy character, and a bit grassy.
T: Tart, lactic, and moderately sour, a bit funky, lemon citrus, wheat bread, some grass and funk. The graininess in the malts fades before the swallow though, leaving a clean, dry, tart lactic character in the hang.
M: Light-bodied. No alcohol to speak of. The carbonation sensation is somewhat lower than it should be for style, but it's far from flat.
O: Nice, well-done berliner with a restrained level of tartness. It's not in the same class as Tartare, or the fruited Florida-weisses available. But a really enjoyable drink nevertheless. Recommended.

Poured into a snifter
A: Opaque lemon yellow. No head. Light lacing.

A: A pale yellow beer with very good clarity. There head is made of thick dense white white foam but dissipates after a minute.
S: A tart, acidic nose with a moderate fruit component of light colored fruit mostly of an apple peel like character and peach. A medium barnyard Brett funk.
T: A medium juicy tartness with light fruit component. There is very little perceived hops bitterness, no flavor hops of note and almost no malt sweetness. The balance is moderately tart. The finish is very dry.
M: A light bodied beer with a medium-strong level of carbonation.
O: A light, crisp, low-alcohol beer with a refreshing sourness. It's not a complex beer but they style is geared for that.
