3.41/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Lost Abbey chalice.

A- Pours a light honey color with a 2" almost light grey hued head. Big clumps and clouding of lacing remains on the glass.

S- Light peach/apricot aromas, slight spice, sour mash is not too forward.

T- Fruit notes are very faint to me. Nice light wheat malt flavor with some sour mash, and lactic/acidic taste.

M- Light body and medium carbonation. Very light feel, almost bodering on watery.

O- Umm...very refreshing beer. Not very educated on Berlinerweiss's but I thought it would be more sour/tart. It is still a nice refreshing light beer that has some fruit and sour notes.

Pours a light orange tinted dark golden color with a fluffy white head of foam that recedes rather quickly leaving little to no lacing.

Aromas begin quite fruit forward with the obvious peach/apricot stone fruits and a semi-tangy wheaty malt base. As it warms I get a little sweeter pilsner malt, lemon and some lactic acid.

The tastes follow the nose with an initial pop of peach flesh/juice. Then you are greated with the sourish wheat malts and a crisp lactic acid tartness. The citrus and grainy flavors emerge as it warms a little but the peaches and lactic acid are the main contributors.

The mouthfeel is light-medium boided with medium carbonation. Finish is dry and clean with some lingering sour and fruit flavors.

Overall this is a super beer. Ridiculously drinkable due to the low ABV, balanced fruit and sour flavor profile and just overall delicious flavor. A great balance of fruit and sour session ale.

3.75/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml.

Pours a nice pale golden color that is pretty light and almost clear. There is a nice 0.25 inch head thta is white and soappy but recedes very quickly.

Aroma is of grains and some nice sweet peach. Very mild and light. Nice earthy grain notes that are slightly bready.

Peach comes up first. There is some nice tartness to the brew as well. The earthy grain notes gives the brew some bready yeast light notes. Crisp light and slightly sweet with some mild tartness. The mouthfeel is crisp and light.

Pretty good offering by the guys at Perennial. I like what they are accomplishing over there.

Numerous drafts sampled in the past week, most recently at the Oak Park Microbrew Review. Served in a flared flute glass.

Lightly hazed pastel yellow shot through with traces of orange in the light. Thin layer of white foam on the surface that doesn't amount to much and soon dissipates. Spotty flecks of seafoam lace left in the glass.

Tart aroma, light peach hints, lactic and somewhat mellow.

Crisp clean lactic tartness in the taste, bright and quenching. Fruity peach note is tart with no sweetness, sort of in the background. Less fruity and sour than Festina Peche. Very light bodied, dry finish, clean aftertaste with a hint of fruit. Overall it's highly drinkable and a great beer to quench thirst in the summer heat. Hope to see this on draft around town before summer is over.

Served on-tap at the brewery.

A - pours a clear yellow color with a small head that disappears quickly. No presence of a head remains after minutes.

S - nose is lots of fresh peaches with a little bit of sour lactose, but not much

T - opens up with really tart, sour lemon notes that move on to the softer peach flavors. The sour and peach flavors hold strong and don't really give way to much else, but that's not a bad thing. OVerall, this is more sour than expected compared to others berliner weisbiers I have tried, but that's not a bad thing.

M - spritzy and well carbonated. How else could it be a berliner if it wasn't?

D - This is a nice take on the style by Perennial - I haven't had one with fruit before and really enjoyed it. Tart, refreshing, flavorful, low abv? Yes, please.
