1 pt .9 fl oz bottle poured into my Weizen glass. Thanks to koopa for trading with me for this one!

A- body is a thick translucent (nearly opaque) straw yellow color that pours with a large fizzy white head. The head quickly dwindles to nothing and no lacing is left behind in the glass. Tiny bubbles can be seen rising to the top. Cloudiness is thick and uniform.

S- The nose is quite acidic and citrusy with a biscuty yeast backbone.

T-Some mild, tart, citrus flavors upfront with a full sweet yeast backbone. The tartness is a bit more pronounced for the finish but is balanced with soft floral hops. No hop bitterness is present but a bit of hoppy flavor lingers along with tart citrus and a hint of yeast.

M- Light, smooth, and full of yeast with a touch of acidity. Medium carbonation.

D-I've had festina peche -but this is my first real berliner. When I tried Brooklyn-Schneider I imagined a real berliner to taste like this. This is exactly what I expected and it is very good-a style I wish more brewers would pick up. The acidity gets to ya after a little bit but its one I would definately trade for again.
