750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy bright orange. Medium white head. Quickly settles to a thin collar. A few surface wisps.
Smell - Lots of citrus. Lemon, orange, grapefruit. Doesn't smell all that acidic. Some cracker malt.
Taste - Light grain then fruity sourness. Sour orange and a bit of a lychee tartness. Fruity aftertaste. Citrus lingers in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Light and pretty sour. Well carbonated.
Overall - Very enjoyable. Simple and flavorful.

Much more smooth and easy drinking than I would have imagined for the style. Nice mellow citrus tones; mostly lemon. Very mild sour edges to it. Not as severe as I would have anticipated to be honest. But as it is, it's extremely easy to drink and very nice. Definitely glad to have a chance to try it.

On tap (praise Jebus) at Pizza Boy.
Light golden color, slightly hazy, with a finger or so of bubbly white head that fizzled down to a tiny layer, leaving minimal lace and legs on the glass. Fresh fruit and hops in the nose, lemon and grapefruit, white grapes, grassy hops, with a slight cobwebby funk. In the taste, saliva-inducing tartness, but not quite puckering, lemon and grapefruit, lesser notes of white grapes and apple, brilliantly fresh grassy and citrusy hops, which complement the sour profile nicely, crackery malts and grain husks in the background. Light-medium body, crisp mouthfeel, nice complexity. A very "crushable" sour beer.
This is easily one of my favorite Berliners. I prefer the straight-forward more "classic beer-like" inclusion of hops, as opposed to the typical usage of fruit to flavor beers of the style. Understated and unique.
