500 ml bottle, tulip

A – Huge, three to four inches plus, fluffy, dense, creamy white head, slowly droping down to a few centimeters sitting on top of a straw to very light gold. Hazy, fairly thin appearance.

S – Lemon, bright citrus, and tartness and lactobacillus. Very fresh, slightly creamy. Some floral, earthy, and citric hop bitterness.

T – Lemon is highly prominent, the lactic acid from the lactobacillus is very tart but not mouth-puckering. Very little malt or hop flavor, if any. A refreshing brightness to the flavor.

M – Very highly carbonated, but a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Feels thick and sudsy. Tartness is not overwhelming. Extremely dry finish.

O – Not quite what I expected in my first Berliner Weisse, as the tart is fairly mild in comparison to the standard in the style. However, this is an excellent, tasty, very refreshing beer, that I could go back to over and over again.
