look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: a little pink, and maybe a little clearer than a normal wheat beer, but those are minor detractions from an otherwise nice looking beer

S: I LOVE the smell, but that is not because it necessarily fits the style (rated lower due to this). The predominant smell is tea, but I also get a coconut milk sweet smell as well, almost like a Thai iced tea. I also get lemon at times, and definitely a feel of a deciduous forest in spring (there's a word from junior high)

T: the sour notes come through more than you'd expect from the nose. Grapefruit tart in nature, it is fairly quickly balanced by the leafy tea tastes from the nose. To be honest, the nose us way more interesting to me, but I do like the taste.

M: decently smooth, with some slight puckering from the sour

O: an enjoyable beer. It has a bit of a novelty feel, but that's more in the nose. The beer itself seems pretty solid to me.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

Serving type: on-tap
