Bottle poured in teku. Pours straw yellow, very clear, two finger white head with some big bubbles, once they fade the beer looks like a Chardonnay. Smell is slightly funky, bready, some citrus,. Taste hits you with pucker right up front, sour lemon, some wheat, some nice sweetness. The texture is very light, leaves your mouth watering for more. This beer is very good. An easy drinking sour that's abv is close to water. So glad I got to try this great sour.

Served on-tap at The Blind Tiger in New York, NY

A: Pours a hazy to cloudy pale straw yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation (represented as moderate sized bubbles throughout the glass along the sides but barely moving) and some lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a small patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of wheat underneath a more moderate aroma of lemon tartness.

T: Upfront there are light flavors of wheat with some moderate flavors of lemon tartness. Lightly sour with a hint of vinegar.

M: Light bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of acidic prickliness and a hint of dryness.

O: Light and refreshing with a pleasant amount of tartness/sourness - not intensely tart/sour so an approachable Berliner Weissbier to get started with... Enjoyable and definitely one I would have again.

I am usually a stout and dark beer person, but this is the perfect compliment when mixed in with all those heavy beers. I have had this beer both from the tap and also from a bottle, and both experiences were similar, this review focuses on the bottle.

The beer pours a very light orange straw color, with small head. The aroma is slightly citrusy, but nothing overpowering.

The taste is very nice, with hints of citrus (mostly lemon), over the wheat, overall just a nice refreshing beer that I enjoyed in the sun. This is one of the easiest drinking beers that I have tasted, and I would recommend it to anyone (Unless you are trying to get drunk, as it is only 3.1% alcohol).
