I had this on tap at Birch and Barley in D.C. served in a small wheat glass

The color is a hazed golden with thick lasting white head. The smell is pleasant with lots of tart yeast aromas with mild sour citrus scent and gentle floral odor with nutty wheat lastly. Mouthfeel is good with tartness present yet not intense and enough to induce a slight pucker with middle tangy and dry with light toasted graininess and medium high carbonation throughout with mostly dry finish.

The taste is tangy as expected with gentle tea-like herbal flavors blending with light toasted wheat and gentle graininess with slight lactic flavors playing nicely with the subtle fruit in the tropical tea blend-Overall a very nice sour wheat ale- great for the style and has enough sour in the mix to keep it interesting.

The beer pours a dull strawberry blond with a loose white head that fades quickly. The nose is tart and sour with notes of bile, wheat, and a slight bitterness that isn't very reminiscent of tea, but possibly the rinds of citrus fruits. The taste is relatively funky with a mild acidity, lemon tartness, and a slight sweetness. The mouthfeel is light bodied, acidic, quite effervescent, with a lingering tropical fruit dryness. This is approachable, drinkable, and has a subtle tart/dryness that allows it to pair well with most meals.

On tap at hopleaf

A - Hazy warm orange with a small white head

S - Light straw, tart Berliner lacto, with a hint of apricots

T - Tart green apple, light straw. It has a lacto tartness that while there is overall soft. There is a light apricot but not as much as you'd imagine. Solid for a Berliner but a bit light on the tartness

M - Nice refreshing body with a slightly dry finish. Medium carbonation

O - A solid Berliner with the tea adding a nice apricot presence that makes this one more balanced than tart
