Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Served in a snifter glass.

A: Light golden yellow, moderate haze, with good visible carbonation and a small white head.

S: Light lemony wheat, grainy, and moderately tart and funky.

T: Starts with tart flavors, grainy wheat, light citrus - tastes more tart than aroma. Nearer the swallow comes some funk and just a bit of barnyard.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, no alcohol presence at all.

O: A quality, well-made base berliner. I'm wondering if this was an attempt to nail down a base recipe for the style that will lead to many fruited ("Florida weisse") varietals. I hope so.

LIGHT SOUR.

Nice beer. Very refreshing Berliner that tastes a lot like a cider. It has a nice amount of carbonation and tiny bubbles. On the glass, it looks like a beautiful pale yellow drink, like champagne, except no rising bubbles. Smells citrusy, yet a very light scent. Taste is light, like a mix of cider and wheat bear. It is very light, could be had on Sunday brunch.

Because of the sweetness, I wouldn't want to drink more than one glass.
