Hazy yellow-gold body; semi-durable head.
Sweet and tart aroma is exceptionally complex with hints of citrus fruits, honey, honeysuckle. Overly funky aroma, for me, but quite palatable flavor with a tart, citrus nature. ... if only it smelled as good as it tasted. (265 characters)

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.

O: Excellent! (284 characters)

Poured from a capped 750 mL bootle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. No date.

A: Hazy, dark golden body. A bit darker than the average Berliner weissbier. 1 finger coarse, clean white head. Average retention. Light lacing.

S: Champagne, white grape, cracker, lime, lemon, light musty funk, apple juice, grass.

T: Mild to moderate sour opens. There is a distinct vinous, champagne quality. Light fruity wheat notes appear and fade away. Minimal alcohol presence. Semi-dry finish and a touch drier than other Berliner weissbiers I've had. Lingering citric acid and distinct champagne linger in the aftertaste.

M: Moderate to high carbonation with medium to light body. Bit fuller than typical for the style, but not unwelcome.

O: Solid outing. Nicely sour. The champagne yeast adds a nice extra dimension without undermining the elements of the base beer. Pretty well done.

Prost! (915 characters)

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Deep lemon to brass yellow body, semi crystal clear, with loads of carbonation of about pinhead size. Head is bleach white, slightly fluffy making about two fingers with little retention. Solid puck on top if thin, but always sticking around and getting repopulated with this large column of bubbles. Real nice looker very neat appearance.

Excellent tartness with some real interesting esters from the yeast on the bouquet. Slightly fruity apricot and also some good malt doughy character and a hint of dense bread. Lemon tang and tartness is very much present but not overboard and well nicely accented by the other aromas. Real sense of effervescence and crispness coming off. Excellent smelling brew.

Palate comes out a first real exceptional, but then slides back into solid basics. Excellent tart front with a good malt backbone at first, mid palate washes with lemon and a bit of rindy zest quality. Tartness subsides as a bit of chewy and dense malt kicks in with a bit of bakery mild sweetness afterwards. Lighter body cut with some real crisp and playful carbonation to match, bringing a great big lemon and apricot bubbly quality to the palate. Aftertaste lingers but also gets a bit.. How should I say, slippery and sticky? Where your teeth sort of rub too much on the molars.

Overall a real nice take on a berliner, excellent job. (1,404 characters)
