Poured into a Green Flash snifter. No freshness date.
A- Pours a medium gold color with a huge two-finger crown that retains good and long before arriving at a 1/4 inch. Sudsy, billowy lacing.
S- Wonderfully funky wild yeast smell with a crisp citrus undercurrent. Possibly some lactic acid aroma. Short whiff of tropical candy.
T- Quick punch of yeast and citrus that transforms into a tart lemon aftertaste. Definitely some lactic acid present as this can officially be classified a "sour" beer. It all works well together though and doesn't deter one from taking multiple sips. A little soapy.
M- High carbonation and a very soft, fluffy feel. Some pucker at the end.
O- So this is what a real Berliner Weisse should taste like. I like it much better than DFH's "neo" berliner weisse, Festina Peche.

This pours light straw and translucent. A thick fine bubble head slowly retreats to a minimal rim. No laces. It takes a while to settle. Excellent clarity. The smell is mainly dusty grain with a little sourness. The taste however is very different. Fairly tart with a light malt presence. Minor notes of white grapes, oak, and wheat. High carbonation, light body, and mostly smooth. This is a great summer time and or lunch ale. I highly recommend this ale if you are a fan if sours.

Tall head that quickly recedes to nothing, with no lacing. Cloudy straw yellow/lemonade color. Smell is lactic acid, lemon, and bready, and the taste mostly follows this. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a dry finish. A nice example of the Berliner Weisse style.
