Pours hazy light yellow with a big white head. Gushed a bit out of the bottle. Highly carbonated.
Smells a bit funky, but really just bland. Maybe a touch of peach, but no sour notes to speak of.
This is one of the most flavorless beers I've ever had. I get a touch of peach near the end before it devolves into a grainy lager flavor to finish. Absolutely NO sour or even tart notes to this at all and the peach is incredibly faint. I had the suspicion this tastes like something I had before and then it finally hit me. Slightly peach tinged Keystone Light.
Very light bodied with very high (even for the style) carbonation level.
One of the worst beers I've had in a while and a huge letdown after how much I loved Perennial at FOBAB. This tastes like a light lager and I've never had a berliner before that was this bad. Not remotely tart. Just a bad all around beer. Hopefully it was just a bad bottle and/or Perennial will start bottling their better stuff soon.

Aroma: Sourness and funk. Rotten peaches not in a bad way. No hop aroma, no DMS, very very slight diacetyl.
Appearance: light yellow with golden highlights. White head that dissipates quickly.
Flavor: light fruit sour up front, very sour in the mid-palate then finishes super dry. Peach is subtle but there. No DMS no diacetyl. Sour level is perfect for style.
Mouthfeel: initially puckering and very dry finish but the mouthfeel after the first sip is very pleasant.
Overall: Really awesome Berliner Weisse, the only thing I can think of is just a little bit more peach flavor might make it stand out from other great examples of the style.
