From the bomber into a Sam Smith perfect pint glass results in a hazy orange body topped by a bubbly head that quickly escapes notice, small bubbles continue to rise to the top.
Aroma is clean wheat beer with a slightly astringent quality not overpowering.
Taste is....Well this train ran off the tracks, Cloying sweetness reminiscent of orange soda pop maybe a little tinge of sour on the front but nowhere near enough to balance out the sickeningly sweet sugary sliminess that comes later, a prickly effervesnace attempts to cut though the heavy sugar bill but fails. Thick sugary aftertaste lingers and needs washing down with something, anything that will remove it.
I didn't know "Soda Pop" was a beer style.
Swill indeed. Extra points for the truth in advertising.
Note: I do NOT like sugary soda pop

Poured a finger and half of head on a hazy straw colored body. The aroma is grapefruit, like a Squirt soda. The taste is like squirt with some light beer flavors. Still a good drink. The texture is crisp with low to moderate carbonation. It is a nice, easy drinking and refreshing beer.

Very hazy gold with a small white head, leaves quickly.
Smells like lemons.
Tastes like beer and lemonade, in other words, a Shandy.
Mouthfeel is fine and just enough carbonation.
Overall a tasty light drink for a hot day. If there were any hops in this beer the lemons blocked them from my tastebuds.

The base beer is a Berliner back sweetened (I believe) with a grapefruit/citrus soda... Think much more refined than the Stiegl Grapefruit Radler.

6-pack picked up tonight at the 16th St. Albertsons.... Paid about $8.... Poured into my goto tulip... the brew is a softly hazed dark golden orange with a short lasting white head with no real lacing or cap.

The Berliner presence comes through nicely on the nose... so does a fairly abundant sweet citrusy essence... but still the Berliner is the bigger player.

The flavor mirrors the nose flawlessly... very tasty and very drinkable.

Body is a bit heavier than expected, probably magnified by the residual sugars... carbonation is also lighter than I hope for, but it is not a game changer.

Very refreshing.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with coppery tones. Half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of lemon-lime soda with light biscuit malt and a hint of grassy hops. Flavor leans towards a light wheat beer with distinct lemon (reminiscent of lemon concentrate) and other light fruit juice. Slight sourness in the finish. Light bodied. An interesting fruit oriented beer, which is not as puckering as a Berline Weisse, which I appreciate, but balances sweet and mild sour well. A great idea for a summer beer; refreshing.

I heard that this was a sour ale, but I don't think it's called one technically. It's based off a Berliner Weiss, which is an actual sour, me loving sours i decided to see if it would scratch the sour itch (haha) and pick a 6 pack up for 9.39.

A- pale straw rich gold color.

S- smells honestly just like some domestic mass produced pale lager. Or the taste of a pale lager more like. Sweet like yeasts.

T- starts off grapefruity sweet and then dives into a mellow sourness. Fricken delish! Then another touch of grapefruit on the long finish and then super pale malts linger for quite awhile. This tastes almost like a sour but then typical beer flavors kick in, such a perfect mix!

M-quite carbonated, makes for it being pretty refreshing.

O- well, I was sceptical. But this beer blew me away! This will be my beer for summer 2013. If you like sours, I'm sure you will LOVE this one as I do! Sours tend to get pretty spendy so for a 6 pack of this costing 9.39ish, I'm very willing to pick this stuff up all the time. Get yourself some!!! Prost!
