A great label design on this one...
Pours a golden yellow with a light head that disappears within a minute. The initial scent is that of a overripe pear with a strong barnyard and wet hay scent that seems quite strong for a Berliner Weisse.
The flavors are intense even when straight out of a fridge. There's crisp apples, hard cider, and a lot of lemon flavor. The lemon accent is extremely strong and goes very well with the more dark grassy scents coming off the top of this beer. Throughout the glass the beer continues to be heavily carbonated, giving it a very light feel. The balance is perfect on all levels, its crisp and clean yet has strong notes of a deeper beer on the nose.
One of the best BW styles i've had.

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.
