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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

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!
