750ml bottle into a wine glass.

A: Pours a cloudy yellow color. The head is around two fingers high and white in shade. Given its bubbly texture and rampant carbonation, retention is quite poor.

S: Lots of lactic stink here. It's very funky, almost cheesy, in fact. Yep, this is a stank-ass cheese beer. There are also some notes of apple, white grape, black pepper, and wheat bread. I'm not getting a significant (or any, actually) tartness, either. Its fairly interesting nose, and I'd even call it good (mainly considering I don't like the style).

T: At first, there are some strong lactic notes, building up to a decently tart finish. It's no gueuze, but it's hardly a wimp, either. Some fruity notes (apple and grape, mostly) float around in the middle. While the general profile doesn't completely appeal to me, it's devoid of the off-notes some Berliners can feature.

M: No getting around it: it's very friggen' light on the tongue. Plus, it's fizzy and dry-finishing. The only thing that really slows down drinkability is the sour linger on the palate. This will be the easiest 750 I've killed in a long time.

O: I don't really like the style too much, so my scores are going to be skewed negatively. Having said that, it's pretty decent. Too expensive for what it is, but decent. Well worth another try, as long as I'm not paying. ;)

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip.

A: Really hazy, straw yellow body; huge white head that receded quickly..no lace, no surprise.

S: Yeasty and bready, lactic tartness was pronounced; light hints of citrus, banana, and other fruitiness.

T: Mouth puckering tartness right in the front. Sour apple, yeasty notes and breadiness are all apparent. Some citrus, berry fruit and banana in the background. Finish is acidic and dry.

M: Light, and highly carbonation.

O: Refreshingly easy to drink. Seems simple in description, but so complex on the palate. Low ABV...you won't get bombed on this, this is a beer to drink simply to enjoy a great beer. Recommended.
