Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a snifter glass.

A: Hazy light golden yellow with a two-finger white head that fades fairly rapidly. Not much visible carbonation.

S: Fruity sweet and wheat aroma. Smells lightly sour.

T: Follows the nose. The fruitiness is almost an apricot flavor (I'm assuming that's kumquat), wheat graininess gets more pronounced near the swallow. This is only lightly tart, even for a berliner.

M: Light body, fairly low carbonation sensation, and no alcohol to speak of.

O: This is OK, but nothing special. I went into it with very high hopes, but honestly I think it fell short. It could have been more tart, or more fruity, or a combination of both. Certainly nothing offensive about it, but I think there's room for improvement.

EDIT: This review was originally posted under "Dos Anos Berliner Weisse" - a listing I believe the BA powers-that-be added, as I was the first & only reviewer, but didn't add that beer. Since "Kumquat" appears in the name on the CCB menu board, I'm moving the review here.

Enjoyed on tap at the CC Brewpub.Mid yellow coloured with some lace. A bit funky, watered down salty. Tart wheat taste. Not greatly drinkable. I have had better made berliner weiss. Still, better I had this at the end of a long session rather earlier.

Happened to be lucky enough to be having a tasting at the brewery the night this beer was released!

The appearance is somewhat cloudy and a bright orange, yellow color.

Smells fantastic! Very juicy and citrusy, I am getting a lot of grapefruit on the nose. I must y I was given a glass by someone the before they put it on the menu so I had to guess at what the fruit was.

Taste- Excellent, wow, really fruity and light with a crisp tartness on the finish. Not too over the top sour, but refreshing the kumquat really ones through nicely and is well received in the flavor.

Mouthfeel is adequate for the style, very light and carbonated. Clocking in at under 4% ABV it's it's about perfect.

If you get a chance to try this, please do, it's excellent. I could drink this one all night long!

First had: on tap at Hawthornes, Philly, PA

Cloudy, golden-copper pour with a white ringlet; minimal lacing. Aroma was light and citrusy. The taste was similarly citrusy, quite acidic, sour kumquat pulp, with some toasted wheat in the distance. Light-medium body, mouthfeel was dry and acidic, but it wasn't overly potent as far as sourness goes, and the lower ABV made this quite a drinkable beer.

On-tap at Cigar City during Hunahpu weekend. Served in a snifter.

A- Pours a cloudy pale yellow, has a thin white head that recedes to a thin layer, leaves some spotty lacing.

S- Loads of kumquat in the aroma, also some tartness and wheat.

T- Nice lactic tartness, spot-on for the style, the kumquat is still very noticeable but is considerably more subtle in the flavor. A bit of wheat sweetness.

M- Light-bodied, a bit dry towards the finish, highly drinkable and refreshing.

O- A very solid Berliner, the Kumquats are great, especially in the aroma. I had this a few times over Hunahpu weekend and would definitely have it again.
