an opaque bright orange-yellow with 2 fingers of fluffy white head which quickly dissipated into 1/8" of foam throughout the drink. smells of slight citrus (orange), bready.. not much else going on there. HOLY HELL this is sour as it gets for berliner weiss beers! a nice blast of citrusy sour/tart flavors takeover completely.. lemon, orange, bready... very acidic, right up my alley.
tart, light (medium) body with high carbonation.. a perfect refreshing beer to finish off this hellish work week through a heat wave.

this is a damn near perfect beer for the style.. i do think it could have used a bit more in the aroma category.. and even the flavor.. although i LOVE how tart/acidic it is, it is lacking in flavor where you could actually pinpoint what citrusy fruit it is you actually taste. enough nitpicking, i love this one!

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.
