4/5 rDev -1.2%
Pours an interesting looking hazy straw color with very minimal head but lots of fine suspended sediment particles. Smell is lemon, yeast, and tonic. You can smell the sour. Taste is very light, like drinking tonic water with lemon zest, some grassy notes, and wheat. Decently sour, but not puckeringly so. Feel is great! This is light, refreshing, easy to dink with high carbonation that enhances the sour taste. Great beer, super easy to drink. Good pizza beer.

This is a very underrated beer. I think because of the price point and ABV level. Everyone seems to give big points to rare beers just because they are rare and high in ABV. I think this is my summer fishing beer for the future. I drank a lot of this. It has a perfect amount of sour to it and drinks very refreshing. I also enjoyed the nose a lot. Next time you see it give it a try. It is a wonderful Berliner Weiss.

S - Sour and slightly yeasty, banana and clove
T - tons of sour lemony flavors, not a ton else bit very good
M - lighter bodied, superiorly drinkable

boy was I reluctant to pay 9 bucks for 12 ounces of 3% beer, but the bruery is the bruery, and I am a sucker, so I let it rip down at jake's in downtown Littleton. not as pale as most berliners, its got just a hint of darker malt color to it and a lacey little white head. smells lacto sour, lemons and acid, but I smell more than wheat as a grain. maybe a touch of rye or something in the copper family making it just a little more interesting than the generic. wild yeast and bacterial fermentation are obvious from the outset. citric funk dominates above the lightest grain bill ever. what I like though is that touch of something other than white wheat. it gives the beer a desirability all of its own, I don't need woodruff or cherry syrup for this, I want it on its own. ultra light in body, carbonated like soda, this is a really odd sensation. so acidic and low in alcohol it would be a chore to get drunk from it, but I guess that's the point. authentic with a twist, another winner from the bruery.
