A- Fizzy white head, huge bubbly carbonation and a hazy golden body. 4

S- Tart, wheaty, kind of berry-like, and there seems to be a bit of saltiness. 4.10

T- Tart with a slight-honey sweetness, and wheat and a nutty quality. There's a slight fruitiness there too. 4

M- Tart, light, and smooth, it's mildly creamy and easy-drinking. 4.1

This is a great rendition. Well done beer from the Bruery. 4.1

From memory while at Max's. She poured a hazy shade of blonde, nice white head. Smells of citric and wheat. The taste was first sour with a citric tartness. Followed through with some funk. A bit too meaty on the finish with a mineral water accent. Refreshing light body and tight carbonation.

Overall: Very decent and balanced brew. I could crush a pint and carry on my day. I couldn't do pint after pint though. The funk could get too much. This brew is worthy.

A- big foamy bubbly head that lasted a little bit with minimal lacing (almost none). Cloudy golden yellow hue.

S- pungent, barnyard, funky (in a not bad way). The lactobacillus and brett are uber present. Sour's not a smell but the aroma hints at a good bit of tartness to come.

T- more tangy than tart. Yeasty but not biscuity. Sour fruits (green apples, lemons). Like unsweetened lemonade.

M- light, clean, crisp.

O- interesting. Haven't had enough of this style so reluctant to weigh in heavily. Overall, enjoyed the experience and look forward to trying more Berlinerweiss. Would only recommend to a true enthusiast, or maybe someone who thinks he/she "doesn't like beer."

Cheers!
