4.35/5  rDev +6.1%

A: Lovely bloom develops quickly but then evaporates somewhat quickly. Minimal lacing. Hazy, unfiltered orange-yellow color.

S: Lively, almost floral bouquet from the wheat and yeast with citrus (lemon) notes.

T: Well balanced flavors of lemon and yeasty wheat, with just a bit of tartness.

M: Smooth, slightly carbonated and medium bodied. Very pleasant textures.

O: This is one of the best examples of of this style, although it is much less tart than many others I have tried. Probably a good choice for those new to the style or sour flavored styles in general (like Goses, Lambics, Flemish Reds and Browns, American Wild Ales; etc.).

Pour is bright hazed yellow with a white head. Nose has a fair bit of dirty grain, faint dusty brett, decent lacto, strong lemon. Taste is a bit sweeter, grain is there but a little messier, lacto comes in mid palate, quite a bit of lemon and gets a bit sweet. Light body, a touch syrupy, moderate carb, dry finish.

Smooth and a classic tart Berliner Weisse. Easy drinking but nice character.
