Served on tap into a snifter.

A- Poured a very light pale golden color with visible carbonation and soapy white head that left minimal lace.

S- Lighter aroma with notes of lemon, some funkiness, bready notes, and some floral notes.

T- Big lemon and white grape/wine notes. some funkiness and hay notes, and light bready notes. Definitely a tart beer but not over the top with sourness and the tartness made it very refreshing.

M- Light bodied, very refreshing, very dry finish, and prickly carbonation.

O- A very nice Berliner-Weisse. Not very complex, but a very nice, easy drinking, tart, and refreshing beer.

The bartender at Bierstein in Eugne was passing out free samples of this the other day.

I'm a pretty big fan of the Berliner Weissbier style, which maybe explains why I didn't care for this. I found the German sparkle party to be much more sour than is typical for the style, with the sour compoent completely dominating the flavor profile. The beer came off as a sour, wild ale, wheat beer, and I just didn't dig it. Otherwise, it looked and smelled OK (there was some light sour on the nose, but the flavor profile was a complete shock - that's how sour this beer is), and I appreciated the low alcohol. However, there is no way I'd want to order this again.

Interesting concept I guess, but just not my cup of tea.
