A - Nice golden blonde body. More pale and a little cloudy, effervescent.
S - Just a light crisp citrus nose. Some earthy wheat present too.
T - A nice refreshing taste of citrus with tart and sour notes. Nice wheat body present. Wouldn't really consider this a sour beer but it has a nice amount of sour kick to it. All the tastes are those that leave your tongue and palate refreshed and good for when you're thirsty.
M - This beer is well carbonated and effervescent. Its light bodied and crisp. I swilled the bottle to get all the residual yeast.
D - This beer is well noted for its drinkability. Its very light and refreshing and goes down as easy as any.
Notes - This beer is light but only in nature. It can be light but still pack enough flavor for any beer drinker. I've had it straight and also had it rot, or red with himbiersirup added. Both were enjoyable.

Tasted 28 July 2014.
Pours a medium clear golden yellow. Two fingers of white fizzy head, okay retention and lacing.
Smell is delicate and delightful. Bright and clean, with just the right touch of lemony tartness. Soft, but stellar.
Taste is also quite good. Again, it's got the two elements I want from a berliner - clean, and light tart. I could use just a bit more of that tartness, as the wheat becomes sweet and starts to detract from the refreshment. Better cold, faded as it warmed.
Feel is good. Light-bodied, fizzy carbonation. Spot-on.
This beer reminds me why I love this style. It's the perfect thing to drink on a summer afternoon. Clean and crisp, with just a hint of lemon and acidity to take the edge off. Very nice.
