3.64/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a very murky lemon/wheat color. Thick, obviously unfiltered and the fruit surely contributes to the thickness of color. Not a huge head but what are you gonna do, it's a three day old growler.

Smells like very acidic orange juice. Some lemon, some apricot, some wheat malt.

Taste follows very closely. Strong fruitiness that reminds me of orange but with far less sweetness and more acidity--two parts orange, one part lemon. Strong wheat flavor comes through in the aftertaste. Pretty sour but it's definitely all citrus acid and no funk. Great taste.

Mouthfeel is good but not remarkable. Easy to drink as is typical of the style. Refreshing.

A very good berlinerweiss, the fruit blends very well with the style. Definitely more successful than some other fruited berliner experiments I've tried.

8.1/10

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.

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!
