3.79/5 rDev -7.8%
A: poured from a 0.5 L bottle into a pint glass, light golden colored with a large white soapy head that quickly dissipates leaving little lacing, cloudy
S: sour pickles, yeast, grain, cider vinegar
T: sour and effervescent, vinegar, tangy
M: heavily carbonated, light, prickly, refreshing
O: this is a weird style of beer, it's hard to rate because I can't compare it to anything but pickles and malt vinegar

Pours a clear gold color with a two finger foamy head which quickly fades to 1/2 finger and holds, leaving spotty lacing. (I poured the sediment in later, and the beer had a cloudy lemon color then.) The aroma has tart lemon, wheat, green apple skin, AND SOME FUNK.
The taste is tart, with some unexpected sweetness at the end. There is tart lemon, wheat, green apple skin, and some funk.
Light bodied with high carbonation. Leaves a dry, sticky feeling in the mouth, with a lightly bitter aftertaste. After two disappointing Berliner Weissbiers, I found this one, which I like quite a bit.

Poured from a bottle (no experation date) into a weizen glass.
Big huge fluffy head typical of wheat beer.
Aroma was very citrusy with a little musty funkiness.
Had very pleasent citrusy tartness. Didn't hit you in the jaw like a lambic, but had a nice sour taste. Highly carbonated and refreshing. Would be great on a hot day.

500ml bottle into snifter.
A: Pours a hazy lemon color with a very loud and fizzy head that was very active and self-rejuvenating. Enucleation on the bottom of the glass is very active and three fingers of thick bright white film lasted long after the pour.
S: Earthy hop, black pepper, lactic bite, faint citrus lemon, and a bit musty. Earthy and spicy overall.
T: Light flavored, earthy spice and hop, pale malt, lactic acid finish, clean acidity, no sour tartness or harsh. Extremely light and mild, like tart seltzer water with a dash of earth and lemon zest. No aftertaste.
M: Clean and very crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. Scrubbing carbonation is very tingly and active.
O: Very light and refreshing, less flavor than I was expecting but still extremely good.

Found that they had this bottle at Spritzenhaus in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
The color is a slightly hazy golden yellow.
The aroma is very yeasty with some sour and a bit of a moldy funk.
The flavor has a malty flavor and a wheat beer character, but then with a nice sour tart bite. The flavor is of pear, sour apple and some yeast. The maltiness really carries this beer so well. For those who aren't into sours, this is wonderful. It has a bit of sour that really makes this beer attractive and refreshing.
I would drink this for hours during the summer.
