3.91/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a very hazy pale straw yellow in color with heavy amounts of active visible carbonation and faint amounts of lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to just the smallest patch of extremely thin film that continually fades and refreshes itself with an extremely thin ring at the edges of the glass. No lacing is observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of slightly sour wheat and a moderate amount of lemon citrus which seems to get stronger as the beer warms up. Smells quite tart. Hints of hay/barnyard and just a touch of lactic sourness.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of slightly sour wheat with a moderate amount of tart lemon citrus. That is followed by light flavors of earthiness and hay along with a slightly stronger than moderate flavor of lactic sourness.

M: Light bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Moderate to heavy amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: Easy to drink and refreshing, especially for a warm summer evening here in NC. A nice representation of the style and definitely one that I would enjoy again.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a DFH Signature glass, the beer pours a hazy straw gold color with a half inch white head that didn't stick around too long. There isn't much if any lacing at all. The brew smells like wheat, lemon, hay, and unfortunately sulfur which was very noticeable. Luckily I didn't have any issues with the taste! It tastes like wheat, lemon, green apples, and some mineral flavor. It's a tart and tasty brew. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's refreshing and easy to drink, and is well carbonated. Other than the aroma, I thought this was good. Definitely worth a try if you come across a bottle.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Some mild gushing when the bottle was opened. Very light pastel yellow in color. Really, more white than yellow. Pours with a very vigorous soda-like head that fizzes up quickly just to fade to absolutely nothing just as quick. No lacing what so ever.

S: Aroma smells pretty spot-on for a Berliner. Lemons, lemonade, hay, and a rather distinctive lactic quality.

T: taste is just about the same: essentially a watered-down lemonade. Lemon zest, not-very-sweet lemonade, lactic, wheat, carbonated water. Easy going with a quick finish.

M: Lighter bodied with very lively carbonation. Mildly tart. No bitterness.

O: A fair representation of the style. As with most Berliners, this a light beer that is quite easy to drink.

3.43/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Duvel tulip, it's a pale pastel canary gold, with the yeast poured in it becomes the color of a brownish pear. Ample carbonation on the first pour, the second was relatively meager. Thin ring around the edge with a threadlike halo of spotty lace around the edges of the glass.

Initial aroma was sulfuric and off putting. Later that seemed to blow off somewhat and there was some lemony white grape tartness present, though an undercurrent of sulfur and funky yeast persisted.

Taste was a little earthier that most Berliners, a bit of a turned soil note in the aftertaste, alongside the typical lactic sour bite. Body was light, and it was fairly drinkable. Not a big fan of the sulfur smell, it's an off note and not welcome in a Berliner Weisse. Despite that, it was a fairly good Berliner.

The bottle opened up with a gushing rush of spray. It had been stored well but it exploded upon opening. The pour produced copious amounts of fizz with a body of cloudy but bright shiny yellow.

The nose was of green peas....one of my least favorite aromas. I did catch some pear, phenols and cardboard but the peas were prevalent.

Surprisingly, the flavor missed any of the scents and instead had a tart, lemony, sour, gamey and salty taste. All these mixed with a spriteness and cider like feel.

I don't know how to perceive this but ultimately the taste was good. Just keep your nose out of the glass.

One of the most memorable beers I tired at EBF this year as I was able to choose a syrup to squirt into my sample. I chose ginger range syrup.

A-Poured a darker amber due to the syrup.

S-I think the syrup clearly overpowered the beer's base. I actually wished I tried the pure base beer before the syrup infusion. It reminded me of sesame chicken or orange chicken from a Chinese restaurant.

T-Liquid sesame chicken from my go-to Chinese restaurant. It finishes with a tangibles that I am not sure if it was still from the syrup or if it was the actually beer trying to speak up.

M-The syrup diluted well in the relatively small portion of beer thankfully.

O/D-I have heard of syrup being added to this style of beer back in its native land. I was happy to actually try method myself. And I can't lie, I do love sesame chicken. Hard to accurately rate this one.
