Nice pour tonight at Prefunk, but definitely expensive at $8.50 for a 10oz pour... Still excited to get a chance to try this one without the hassle of trading. Nonexistent white head... no lacing... the brew is darker than expected orange with the expected haze. Lactic/lemony with a smack of wheat and something that makes me think of tannic/under-ripe apricot. Body is perhaps a little thick for a Berliner, but that is a minor bitch... Well done.

4.18/5 rDev +6.9%

more or less a berliner style beer, just more brett than lacto. still the same pale wheat base, listed on the hops and pie draft list at 4.9% abv, which is far more sizable than the listed content here. seems light though, and so pale hazy in color, caucasian looking beer here, creamy and rich and pale and peachy. the nose is familiar white wheat malt in healty dose, and subtle brett C type yeast, along with mild and immature lacto, which if left to get weird probably would before too long. some sturdy oak on this too, sweet and woodsy, even a hint of sap to it. richer than any berliner weisse on the market, but in the same family, albeit loosely. the development of the wild side of this is extremely pleasant, up there with the other firestone beers, and not all that different from lil opal, although i think i like that one a bit more. this one sits a little heavy at room temperature, and never really gets to the sour level. supremely well made though, and this would surely satisfy any drinking of the lighter side of wild ale. it certainly works for me. thanks to hops and pie on tennyson for making this come to life for me. scrumptious rarity.

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.
