look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
First had a 5oz taste, then went back for the whole sha-bang it was so good! Served in 12oz tulip...
A- Pale canary yellow. Very hazy, almost opaque with off white edges. Small film of head falls quickly.
S- Holy shit- this smells like a key lime pie! Tart lime upfront, sweet marshmallow meringue hint, lemony also with a floral finish. Believe it or not, but also a nice graham cracker aroma!... Insane
T/M- Boom shakalaka! A tart pie in my mouth! I mean, so incredibly similar to the nose. I even find some more graham cracker on the palate; and this is endorsed by BA urwithdave (great guy, btw) Such a tasteful and flavorful berliner. Perfectly tart to keep style in mind, but not go overboard. As it warms, the fruit flavor transitions from lime to orange in a way, different but great. Light body, low carbonation, refreshing and ultimately this is world class per style, IMO!
O- Couldn't resist this beer. Tried to get growlers to go- even begged the brewer claiming I drove just from TN for it, but he wouldn't budge... :( Though I may have some higher rated beers on BA when this is said and done- this beer and Zombie Dust would be my 2 beers I could drink ALL day, EVERY day... Unreal!

Had in Dec 2012 at Independent-Tampa
A-Nice 1.5 inch of head which recedes slowly, served in weird glass that looks like a hybrid tulip/snifter (I'm sure it has a name, I just don't know it).
S- Smells like a clean sour key lime, mixed with white grapes, and maybe some granny smith apple
T-Nice tart/sour lime right up front, followed by generic citrus and lemon.
M-Very light and delicate, nice carbonation that hits all the sweet spots in your mouth, very prickly.
O-This is THE best berliner I've had by 7venth Sun and I wish they made more of it. Not up to Funky Buddha standards yet, but close. Well done!

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. Nice lime note on this with a touch of sweet wheat bread. Citric and lactic tartness and a nice note of lemon zest. The flavor is mild to moderately tart, though there is a mild wheat flavor and sweetness. Enjoyable lime and lemon flavors which also add a bit to the tartness.

A - Pours a hazy golden yellow color, white head, thin collar.
S - Citrus, key lime tart notes, light sour pucker. There's a touch of malt in there, which reminds me of a cracker crust or something, pretty neat.
T - Similar notes to the nose, key lime, citrus, bready malts, yogurt, light tart fruits. Not quite as key lime-forward as I was expecting from the nose, but still some nice tart fruits and citrus. Finish is dry tart citrus with a touch of acidic sour.
M - Light body, light carbonation (older growler), refreshing, dry finish.
O - A decent berliner, but not my favorite from 7venth Sun. That said, I would drink early & often. This brewery continues to do good things and I look forward to more stuff from them!

Growler shared by ChrisPro. Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip.
A - A finger of white foam settles to a near-complete cap, collar, and minimal lace. Lightly hazed green-tinged pale straw body.
S - Nice key lime aroma, complete with pie crust and whipping cream, as well as a mild hint of sour citrus. Base beer seems to be overwhelmed by the key lime addition, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
T - The taste is quite similar, but without the same intensity of key lime and a bit more pale malt and vanilla. Some wheat and tangy yeast in the finish. Perhaps a tad watery.
M - Watery, medium-light body, low carbonation, a touch grainy, and no obvious alcohol.
D - Very easy to drink - I like it more than the base beer by a fair margin. If it tasted like it smelled it'd be superb, but unfortunately it's merely good. A touch more spritz would also help liven up the flavors, but perhaps the lack of bubbles was due to the age of the growler.
