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.

32oz growler into a matching CCB snifter. The brew pours a clouded light yellow color with a finger of white froth that settles back to thin film across the top. Spotty lace sticks to the glass.

Why does this beer smell like chicken salad? A hint of cooked celery, chicken and starts to get off-putting and almost fishy. This smells like a prank...seriously. Digging deeper, there is some spoiled grain aspect, corn and some pleasant lemony lacto character somewhat like yogurt.

Despite the aroma being pretty strange...well, actually freakish. The taste is quite good with a lemony lactic tartness that gives way to a fresh bread/cracker-like maltiness to the finish. Strong greek yogurt tang to this and mild fruity quality when bigger sips are taken.

This is a light bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. It is terribly funky in a strange way across the nose but the flavor is pleasant and clean. I had no issues consuming 32oz of this in 1 sitting and would do so again if the opportunity presented itself. Just dont ask me to smell it...eh.

Small glass at The Top in Gainesville. Yellowish pour with fluffy head. Sweet & sour wheat smell with some lemon peel. Taste is sour with more sweet than I am used to for the style (a good thing in my eyes). Light body and easy drinking. Not bad, but also not a huge fan of thi style. This was tolerable thanks to the sweetness and a bit more substance to the flavor.

This one is a straight down the line Weiss for my palette. Sour notes, slight lemony, longer than usual lasting bubbly head, and a small dose of bitterness. Pale cloudy appearance.

Coming in at 3% this packs a good punchy taste. It may set you back on the first couple of sips---the combo of bitter and sour and weak mid section could make you think you made an error. But, it is quite refreshing, making me ask for another.

I wouldn't think Cigar City would continue invesing in such light beers (ABV wise), but this is a fine specimen--it makes one appreciate what the Germans accomplished. Drink mass quantities of this of you are tired of too much alcohol lingering behind after a session.

Good show Cigar City.

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.
