What an outstanding example of the style! Could drink this beer all day and all night, and maybe even in the shower.

The appearance is a nice light straw color with a great white head that has incredibly fine bubbles. It leaves a nice leg on the glass that shows its oily body.

The smell is great, nice crisp lemon rind. Great must and wheat smell as well. A sharp acidity that is just right.

The taste is amazing. Great lemon and acidic flavors with an easy drinkability that is killer. Has a bit of a wheat and oat background, but with the funk, its amazing. It is really light on the mouthfeel side, which is perfect for this stye. Is the perfect cure for those refreshing sour cravings that I sometimes have. Simple, but delicious.

Massive five-finger head rushes out of the bottle. White soapy foam lingers on top of the brew for some time. Brew is cloudy yellow with tons of whites.

WOW. A true Berliner Weiss (BW)... Lemon, orange, spices, wheat, lots of stone fruits too.

Perfect (light) funky tartness, awesome carbonation, zero bitterness. Yum. Lots of apple, apricots, lemon, orange, pepper.

IMO, this is how a BW should appear, smell, and taste. Highly recommended, this is a must try for likers of the style
