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.

Short review from a fly at Cigar City.
Hazy yellow/straw with a small head. Nose is mainly on citruses, refreshing. Tastes very much on citronella, kumquat is also present and tastes a bit weird here, with a slightly medicinal aftertaste, slightly sour also. Not really easy to drink but refreshing. Not very bad, but somewhat forgettable.

On tap at The Top in Gainedville. Taps here are $$$. Pours a cloudy yellow with little head. Smell is strong fruit (kimquat i assume). Very sweet smelling with a hint of sour and yeast. Very sour up front with a fruity flavor going down. Dirty wheat beer flavor lingers, which I am not keen on. Light and refreshing mouthfeel with steong carbonation.

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.

Very pale yellow in color, bordering white. Served with a flimsy white head. Little retention. No lacing. Aroma is very citrus forward and unmistakeably kumquat, though the kumquat has a slight rubber latex aroma to it. Taste is also very citrus forward, but there is more orange and orange zest than kumquat. Mild sweet-tart action. Light bodied easy carbonation. Lighter citrus pith bitterness.

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 ccb.

A straw colored, hazy, small thin white head, that is gone fast. Left with a white ring.

S tangy, light, wheat, light kumquat

T big bold tangy tart citrus begining. The middle fades into the kumquat citrus and the end is very light. Barely any aftrt taste.

M light thin and prickley.

O not bad. But not my ideal style...
