On tap at Stone. Thanks for driving me there, Carlos, you truly are a wonderful host!

A: Light golden yellow with brilliant clarity, a thick fluffy head that disappears a little quickly

S: Light, bready and tart, pleasantly so. Lactic sourness is present, and unless my nose is deceiving me, there's some brett character too. Great stuff

T: Opens light, bready with a pleasant tartness. Lemony with a slight green apple character. Finishes refreshingly dry

M: Light with a nice dextrinous palate that adds a little body to the tartness and dryness. Crisply carbonated, great finish

D: This is truly quaffable, I need a sixtel!

Light blond color.
Frothy/foamy head settles to a thin patchy head with some lacing.

Huge fragrant nose. Mealy, grainy, round, slightly toasted aroma. Hint of lemongrass & fresh Ialian semolina bread.
Wonderfully fresh, fruity/flowery & slightly lactic.

On the palate: Very light body with pretty big flavor.
Fresh, slightly sharp lactic, lemon/lime, grainy wheat. Slightly sour - which fades from mid-palate to finish.

Clean. Lots of flavor & great balance.

This is a wonderful, characterful, big flavored brew.
You feel like you could drink this stuff all day ... if necessary!?!

. . . @ 3.1% ABV, maybe you could!

93 Points

Amazing brews coming out of this place!

CHEERS!

750 ml bottle, thanks to mikedashg for the hookup. Part of epic Bruery tasting.

Pours a lightly cloudy light yellow, medium sized frothy white head forms and settles down to a thin ring around the glass, no real lacing, looks like a Berliner weiss!

Smell is real nice, very tart and lemony, burnt wood, some toast, light sour fruit, a bit of spice, lemonadey, very refreshing aroma, nice stuff.

Taste is similar, very tart, lemon water, sour and fruity, a bit of barnyard funkiness, toast, light bread, wood, sharp finish, really nice stuff.

Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium to high carbonation. Very refreshing, I need to do one of these for home. Great Berliner. Thanks Mike!

At The Bruery.

The beer pours a clear golden yellow color with a finger of snow white foam. Smells of sweet esters and lemon rind. The taste is lemon zest, sweet esters and chardonnay. Very nice. The beer is light bodied with a high level of carbonation. I'm really enjoying this one. It's very refreshing and the white wine characteristics that I'm getting lend a complexity to the beer that is very enjoyable. This would be a great beer to have on a hot summer day. it's great on a cold, rainy winter one today! I'll be seeking this out in the future.
