Had 2 nice glasses on tap at Bar Gernika in Boise.... Pours with a short lasting sudsy white head... the brew is polished straw golden... Proper.

The nose is brightly acidic with some background earthy notes.

Flavor mirrors the nose with some lemon zest... very lactic with no vinegar notes... some sorta background grainy notes helps propel the acidity from front to back.

The expected light body with plenty of prickly carbonation.

Wow... I hope they bottle this one... I could drink this again and again.

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.

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.
