A: Golden yellow with a light haze, very little fine bubbled carbonation, 2 fingers of bright white head with large and small bubbles that fades relatively fast.

S: Musty Biere de Guarde quality, acidic lemony quality, very Belgian quality like some strain of Belgian yeast, almost a stinky breath quality at times.

T: Very light, low flavor profile, really hides the alcohol, light and almost no flavor except for a very light essence of the scent, then all the sudden at the end, a lemony, burst of dry lemon and lemon rind quality comes in.

M: Light and dry, but weighty in the mouth feel perhaps due to the alcohol. Medium low carbonation that is fine bubbled and spritzy, like Kombucha. Very smooth.

O: Really light in flavor and in the mouth feel, even though its got such high alcohol content. Light and lemony. Still, its feat to have accomplished the lightness covering the alcohol.

I was expecting a LOT more from this beer. I've had much better Berliners that represented the style more appropriately. Knowing that this was an interpretation of a Berliner, I didn't go into it looking for a pure BW. However...

The smell was pretty good and it had some nice funk going on but the taste was just a complete let down. It was barely sour, more of a slight tart flavor on the initial taste of each sip. That quickly faded to an earthy, straw funkiness which would have actually been very nice but was interrupted with a malty sweetness that didn't fit in the least and ruined an otherwise OK beer. More sour and eliminate the sweet and they'd have a decent beer.

This was bottled in June 2013 and consumed June 2014 so I'm sure the profile had changed. The bottle did state that it could be aged... Wonder how a fresh batch would compare.
