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.

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!

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!

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.
