pint bottle poured into a goblet. pours a hazy golden color with a single finger of rapidly depreciating white head that leaves no lacings and has poor retention.
aroma is of fresh bret funk and a bit of wheat malt mixed in with a light apple note in the background and a wet hay note that envelops the profile and enhances the freshness. fresh and crisp in the nose.
taste is of mild funk with a touch of sourness and a base of wheat malt. undertones of fruit (mainly apple) with a very crisp finish. little to no residual. very tasty.
mouthfeel is light bodied and crisp on the palate with a very refreshing character. solid.
drinkability is excellent. a great berliner. very crisp and refreshing with just enough funk to keep it honest. cheers!

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.
