I poured this from a 16.9 bottle. It pours a hazy straw color with an immediate head from an aggressive pour which dissipates in a swirl of bubbles that continue to rise from the beer for a long time after the pour

Smells like fresh green apples, not the crap apples you buy in stores that are 2lbs and genetically modified. A real apple. Probably granny smith.

Taste is a bit sour with a sweet finish kind of a like an apple champagne or something like that.

Mouthfeel is light and champagney.

Worth a shot!

A- This one's a gusher. Pours an extremely fizzy straw yellow with some more orange highlights. Minimal head that aggressively fizzles to nothing.

S- Very fresh smell, lemon and lime zest, swirls reveal slight hoppiness, also picking up some funk

T- Most surprising, very bold flavors for such a small beer, tons of lactic sourness, a bit of funk, and a sharp lemon/spicy finish

M- A bit light, feels similar to a hefewiezen, very carbonated so a there's some bite

D- Very sessionable. Perfect for a warm day. Low abv and refreshing taste.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

Color is a clear golden straw color with a quickly dissipating white head and quite a bit of carbonation. Evan after the head makes its exit the carbonation keeps going and going, sending a plume of bubbles right up the middle of my tulip glass...good show.

The aroma is odd, not like your usual beer. The nose is dominated primarily by an unusual combination of musty pale malts and a citric sourness...funky.

Flavor begins with slightly sweet muted grains and then quickly shifts into a delicious citric lemon tartness, quite refreshing. This beer finishes with a lingering lemony tartness that is quite different and pleasurable. Body is light with plenty of carbonation. An enjoyable drink.

This is my first Berliner Weisse and I am definitely enjoying it and will be buying more in the future.

Poured into 10oz pilsner type glass. Pours a light golden color with tons of fizzy soapy head. Smell is faint and in my opinion apple like. I've never had a lighter beer that tasted quite like this. Very funky taste in a good way. Tastes like a really light sour to me. Light mouthfeel almost like drinking water. Very drinkable, I will be enjoying this beer often in the summer months.

A - Pale straw yellow with tons of fluffy white head.

S - Hay, malt, and lemon peel.

T - Dry, some faint malt, dominated by a bitter lemon flavor and mouth-puckering sourness. Slightly peppery at the finish.

M - Insane carbonation, like a champagne.

O - A great beer for a light meal or on a hot day.
