4.31/5 rDev +12.5%
On tap at Max's
A: Hazy/cloudy. Decent lacing. Transparent tan.
S: Sour, tart, funky, and bready.
T: Tart, funky, and mellow apple cider vinegar. Interesting bready aftertaste is a first and great. Sour almost like a kvass.
M: Foamy and soft. It is quite cleansing.

First had: on tap at the brewery
Clear straw-colored beer, with a small bubbly white head that nearly disappeared; no real lacing to speak of. Aroma of sour mash, toasted grains. About right for the style. Nice little twinge of tartness up front in the taste, lemony, quite grainy, notes of toasted bread, grape skins, cardboard. Body was light to light-medium, mouthfeel was crisp, with a little stale/grainy aftertaste, moderate carbonation. A decent crack at the style.

3.46/5 rDev -9.7%
Pours a slightly cloudy gold, white lacing for a head dissipates to nothing.
Grassy malt aroma with sour lemon citrus notes.
Tastes of lemon, grassy malts, and sourdough bread.
Medium body with a stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.
A solid but boring berliner. This style is rapidly picking up popularity as more craft breweries try to bring it back, at least around where I travel, but this one isn't as good as some of the others I've tried. It's good, just nothing special among sours, German or Belgian.

3.8/5 rDev -0.8%
On tap at Max's poured into a taster.
Light hazy yellow in color, with minimal head. Smell of slight lemon and some sourness. On the taste the lemon, citrus, and tartness notes come through. Mouthfeel is moderation, but has a dry quick finish. Would like more on the end. Overall solid offering for Burley Oak's first sour I believe.
Burley Oak's website lists this at 4IBU's and notes:
This Burley interpretation of a 16th century German style Berliner-Weisse has undergone an initial pre-boil fermentation with lactobacillus bacteria to give it it's signature dry, puckering and refreshing character. 55% of the grain build comes from wheat harvested in Snow Hill, MD, which gives this beer a full mouth finish.
