Picked up a bottle for ~$7. Poured into a wine glass. No date on bottle.
A- pours a bright wheat color from bottle. By adding a touch of the yeast from the bottle the beer sits a pale yellow hue. No head forms and only a few bubbles rise to the surface.
S- Bright sweet lemon with a good mellow tartness. Dusty notes with some wheat. Smells very light and refreshing.
T- Similar to the aroma indicated. Sweet lemon, a light tartness, wheat & dust. Simple mellow and refreshing. Flavors are pretty bold for such a light beer.
M- Medium bodied for a beer this light. Drinks like a light lemonade, except better. The tartness lingers lightly as the beer slowly dries.
O- A nice simple refreshing beer. Reminded me of JP Weizen Bam. So easy to drink. The flavors are bold enough to make this interesting. This beer exists between a wit and a blond sour. Would like to try more of this style.

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.
