4.35/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Wormtown weizen glass.

A- Slightly cloudy yellow body (Very cloudy after the yeast is poured in), great big 4-finger rocky white head that shows great retention.

S- Very tart, sour, funky, musty, astringent, with a lemony spiciness. A little sour aplle aroma. Sweet white grape aroma.

T- Very nice and tart. Sour apple, funkiness, a little soury-citrus with a sweet white grape flavor again. A lemon grass flavor is there, too, but in the finish with some more tartness, that's where the acidic flavors come through as well.

MF- Light to moderate body. Very dry finish. Also a chalkiness to the finish as well.

D- Very drinkable. I love the flavor of a good Berliner Weisse or any other tart beer so it scores high with me there. The 5% abv also helps, as it becomes pretty sessionable (Not a SESSION ALE, DING, but sessionABLE). Also, the tartness doesn't wreck you palate like some other wilds/sours I like, so you could enjoy a couple of these no problem.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
