On-tap at Oblivion in Orlando. Pours a pale slightly hazy whitish yellow color with an off-white head. The aroma is faint wheat with a touch of lemon, grass, and hops. The taste is wheat with some sour citrus and a tart finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied and heavily carbonated. Overall, this is a refreshing light bodied beer that is perfect for the hot Florida summers. (374 characters)

On tap at Cigar City. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy yellow orange. Small white head with larger bubbles. Settles quickly. White collar remains.

Smell - Grainy with some acidity. Fruity, orange citrus. Simple but decent.

Taste - Grains are very prominent. Moderate tartness. Sour orange tang. Pleasant and simple again.

Mouthfeel - Very easy to drink. The moderated tartness helps. Medium carbonation.

Overall - It's definitely not the most exciting Berliner from these parts, but it's well made. Refreshing. (522 characters)

A buddy of mine brought me up a gallon (yes gallon) growler of this from the CCB tasting room. Poured it into New Glarus flute.

Great pale yellow color with a nice short-lasting head. The smell is funky, but in a good way. The overall taste is a tart lemony zest with a great malty, bready aftertaste that lingers. Exactly what I like from Berliners and Goses. Can't get enough of the aftertaste. Great carbonation. Overall, this is exactly what I was hoping it would be and glad to have a full gallon to enjoy throughout the week. (532 characters)
