3.06/5  rDev -20.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

On tap at Barrelworks.

I was largely underwhelmed by this beer, and I'm not sure if that's a function of how it's marketed or if it's just not that great. As a Berliner weisse, it's not very good. It's fairly flat and watery, with minimal tartness. Notes of straw overtake any pleasant maltiness or sour bite it might have had. The brett funkiness is pleasing, but eclipses some of the other notes usually present in a Berliner weisse. Perhaps I expected too much, and maybe I should have adjusted my expectations for something less a Berliner weisse and more a slightly tart saison (which, even then, this wouldn't be a very good example of). It's worth tasting, but I wouldn't return to it.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Firestone Walker Barrelworks in Buellton, CA.

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, spice, lemon, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour malt and grain flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but fairly watery and lacking in sourness.
