750ml bottle into a Berliner Weiss glass. Thanks goes to Pidzik12.

A: Pours a shade lighter than apple juice with a foamy, airy, and very fizzy bright white head that quickly faded away into nothingness.
S: Tart, bright, crisp, and refreshing scents of lemon zest, minerally seltzer water, slight stone fruit and golden fruit, bready yeast and acid.
T: Bright, up front tartness followed by golden fruits, pear, lemon, and crackery bready yeast. The finish has a kiss of sweetness and green apple, and the aftertaste is juicy and drying, with lingering fruity sweetness and crisp tartness. There's an earthy quality as well. Wheat is light and grainy.
M: Juicy and slick mouthfeel, dry but a bit buttery and full from the wheat. Crispy, refreshing medium body. Good sharp tartness that isn't lingering. Fuzzy and frothy carbonation that is ample but soft.
O: Very good flavor and mouthfeel. All around very enjoyable. One of the heaviest Berliners I've had. Extremely delicious though. Thanks for including this Paul.

Bottle pour at the pre-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, funk, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, fruit, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is tasty, refreshing, and easy to drink.

5/5  rDev +29.9%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Beautiful gold/saffron/jonquil body with a blindingly crisp isabelline/snow head.

Aroma: Crisp apples, light lemons, mango, papaya, guava, persimmons, etc.; In short, a large fruit/citrus nose, yet extremely balanced and light.

Taste: Apples are prominent, followed by light notes of persimmons and quince.

Mouthfeel: Extremely tart and refreshing; carbonation is light sparkling apple juice.

Overall: Not only one of my favorites, but also one of the best, from 3F; crisp, refreshing, flavorfull...just, amazing. Should you come across any bombers, stock up on as many as you can - you will want to savor 'Deesko!' as frequently as possible.

Bomber purchased from the brewery last summer....meanderingly dumped into a wine glass over a few hours time.

A darker yellow that pours with a discernible fizz. Quick head falls and dissipates to a still and bare surface.

Somewhat unexpectedly fruity on the nose. Guava? Fleshy summer fruits with little indication of tartness. It's nice but strange.

Gummy peaches and bright tangerines...sour fruits pound away. Finish is tart and sprtitzy lemon with a fading grainy malt quality that's enveloped in lemon warhead.

An odd take on the style that's not without its good and unique qualities. As a Berliner, it's strange and abnormally high in abv. As a post run sour beer it hits some positive notes.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Slight haze. Golden body. Some bubbles as I pour it, but there isn't any real head.

Smell - Acidic. Not like a normal berliner. More acetic. Minimal grain.

Taste - Sharp sourness. Lactic and pushing some acetic flavors. Light grain. Simple flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Definitely heavy for a berliner. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Not what I expect from a berliner. Some of these flavors don't belong.
