look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

First had: on tap at Torst, Brooklyn, NY

White peach color, hazy, with a thin bubbly white head that sank to nearly nothing; not much lacing. Aroma was a bit muted, herbal, notes of tea and slightly funky citric/lacto tartness. Nice twinge of tartness on the tongue, though fairly mild in that regard, toasted wheat, lightly lemoned tea, slight musty grass sensation. Not overly aggressive for the style, but tasty and accessible nonetheless. Light-medium body, prickly carbonation, easily drinkable. A good brew overall.

Serving type: on-tap

3.08/5  rDev -20.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

On tap at Perennial Tap Room in St. Louis, MO.

App- slightly hazy straw yellow, minimal white head that disappears as it is served. No lacing.

Smell- smells more like tea. A touch of citrus, pineapple with a tart nose. Not much else.

Flavour- tastes a bit tart, but there isn't much of the tart wheat flavours I get from other Berliners. No lactate or yogurt. Some tropical fruits are in the background but overall the beer feels watered down a bit.

Mouthfeel- watery, thin bodied. Seems the tea has cut the beer a bit. Not difficult to drink. Serves as a nice palate cleanser though!

Overall- I think that if they added tea to the beer in secondary or something like that, that seems to have diluted an already low ABV beer style and made it watery without adding a lot of flavour or complexity. It's alright but I wouldn't recommend it unless you needed a change of pace in between giant Perennial stouts.
