Growler poured into a Hill Farmstead stem.
Pour: Hazy deep yellow, with a finger of white head. Head recedes rather quickly, and leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: Woah. Big zesty and juicy citrus up front, with some pineapple and mango. Some tart lemons and some bread. This smells incredibly unique.
Taste: Tart lemons and citrus zest up front, and a good lactic sourness comes in. Lots of breadyness. A nice spicy aspect - light a cross of white pepper and citrus zest continue. The fruit aspect is incredibly juicy. Finishes tart and juicy with citrus.
Mouthfeel: Needless to say, this is insanely drinkable. Tartness is very nice.
Overall: This was the best berliner I've ever had by a lot. Cigar City really nailed this one.

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!

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.
