750ml bottle poured into a stemless wine glass.

The beer pours a hazy lemon color, very soft yellow, cloudy in texture with a 2 finger high, white head, very fizzy that dissipates immediately and leaves no film or lace. The aroma is of tart, lightly acidic citrus and soft floral tones with a nice punch of wheat and light funk. Similar on the tongue, bright, light citrus with subtle wildflower, tart, funk berry fruit, lots of wheaty grain and light barnyard. The body is light, fizzy yet almost juicy, smooth with a very light and easy finish.

Verdict: A quintessential Berliner Weissbier, the flavors are light, yet impactful and it has a great refreshing finish. The simplicity of this style is executed wonderfully, a really nice beer to share with friends.
