Out of a 22 ounce bottle. On to the beer:

An inch of head sits on top this cadmium colored beer. A little cloudy, especially when the entire bottle is emptied into the glass. The aroma smells sour, lemony, and also medicinal, the last character I could do without. It actually does do well mocking the Berliner Weiss style with its sour and tart fruitiness and touches of creamy wheat. What dampens the excitement is the medicinal aspect, which gives the beer a taste of ointment. It's light bodied and paired with well placed carbonation. It's drinkable as it stands, and take out the ointment character this would be a great warm weather refresher.

22 from Bottleworks in seattle. Hazy deep yellow. Thin white headed disappears quickly. Smell is sour with some general funkiness indicative of sour mash/kettle beers. Taste is tart wheat, lots of citrus with a puckering finish. Not crazy sour but sour enough to be bright and refreshing. Medium bodied, perfect carbination for the style. Very nicely done.

On-tap at Boneyard Bistro, Sherman Oaks, CA

A: The beer is hazy pale light yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down and left some patches of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light aromas of sourness are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell,mexcept that the sourness is a little stronger and there are also notes of lactic acid.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly tart on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer has some refreshing properties—it's neither too acidic nor too tart.
