Notes/Commercial Description:
A traditional Berlin-style sour wheat beer, based on the meticulous research of beer historian Ron Pattinson. Big thanks to Kristen England of Pour Decisions Brewery for all of his help along the way and to our good friend Andrew Pogue, whose test batch first inspired the idea.

Very light and thin with a weak head that dissipates to nothing in seconds. Almost no smell with just a whiff of "maybe something has turned in the fridge." Even the flavor of rare can't help this one. Water with a touch of plain yogurt and powdered vitamin C.

Murky, yellow-orange with one-finger soapy white head. Head goes away fast.

Lemon, orange, and bready coriander.

Watery, lemon, orange, spiced, thin, light, highly sessionable, very faint tartness, high carbonation, nice sweetness, dry like chardonnay...

Recommended, only because I'm not sure what it cost, anything over $9 and I'm not sure it's a good value. Misses style only slightly. Very refreshing brew for a hot winter day.

Pours a slightly hazy sunny, light orange. Vigorous pour yielded a two finger head, dissipated very quickly. The aroma was slightly bready, with only the faintest note of tart. Not much else. Taste was again, only faintly sour or even tart, little wheat notes and touches of orange. Light bodied, very light on the carbonation, average feeling.

Though I'm not the most experienced in Berliners, this was just boring and lacked a lot...
