Had at 7venth sun from 12oz tulip, then took a growler home which is where this review came from.

A- Almost no color, pale white yellow, finger of fluffy foamy head, settling to a ring on the glass quickly.

S- Some lemon zest mixed about a nice wheat aroma; perhaps a few white grapes as well. Fairly light overall, but balanced and enticing.

T/M- Such a balanced berliner. Barely tart, its more acetic with soft citrus nuances; obviously lemon as the most prominent but orange and guava following. Wheat malt base provides light flavors complimenting this great brew. Light body, but feels full on the palate. Moderate carbonation, not too bubbly- more slick than anything.

O- Pretty damn good, but not near as good as the key lime treatment I had; not sure if this is base beer for that or not. Anyway, definitely one of the lesser tart berliners I've had, but still some nice crisp flavors in this light drinker perfect for a Florida day...

Thanks to ygtbsm94 for sharing this one. After having it, glad that I've got another one coming from jcartamdg.

Served in a SAVOR wine glass.

Pours a cloudy straw color with an average white head. Some sparse lacing on the way down. The nose has some light wheat character plus mild acidity.

The flavor has a nice tartness to go along with the wheat. Not too much depth, but it hits the wheat flavor and acid combination very well. The body is light and crisp, and has a nice light pucker factor throughout. Really well done and I could see how this would make a fantastic base beer for some fruited berliners.

Pours a golden straw color with a white head. A bit different as far as Berliners go. Somewhat funky with some yogurt and blue cheese, very bacterial. Lemon zest, tartness, and a bit of straw with light wheat aromas. The flavor is nicely tart with a good lemon character. The funk is there as well, but not quite as pronounced as on the aroma. It’s a bit fruity as well, maybe apples.

Big thanks to sendsilk by way of jcartamdg for hooking me up with a pair of growlers from this new brewery. I appreciate the effort gents in looking out for me and my quest to try new offerings in this style!

Poured from a 1-liter flip top growler into a berliner bowl, this brew appears a very pale, clouded yellow color with a finger of white fizzy froth. The cap of white bubbles sitting atop this brew is quite impressive for the style but slowly fades leaving some spots of lacing on the glass. A light swirl agitates some bubbles from solution that maintain a thin layering of white patches across the surface.

The nose of this brew has a very refreshing lemony aspect somewhat reminiscent of yellow sweet tart candies. The sweet candied aspect blends into a more natural wheat and grain smell that is very much along the lines of cereal. The aroma of this has almost an artificial lemony candy aspect about it that, while enjoyable, seems a little bit augmented in some way not found in the natural fermentation process.

The taste is very clean and refreshing for the style. A hint of lemony character, slight touch of grassy herbs and sweet cracker to wheat/cereal grains fills out the rest of the profile. There is a very solid balance of grainy sweetness verse tartness included in this brew. While the nose is quit exaggerated with lemon candy, the taste is much more focused on the pale grainy malt. This brew finishes exceptionally crisp and refreshing that welcomes the next sip. I can imagine having this available in the summer, it would be easy to down a lot of this.

This is a light bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation that while visibly lacking has some prickly feel to the mouth. It is a little watery but that is understandable and almost to be expected of this style. It is very refreshing and drinks with ease. At nearly 5% abv, it is reaching the upper limits without being considered "imperial" and the inflated alcohol is lightly felt across the back of the throat. Regardless, this is a welcomed addition to the offerings available in the style and I look forward to what else this brewery has to offer. Thanks again fellas for hooking me up with this!

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Southern Brewing & Winemaking. Served in a stange glass.

A: Pale yellow with mild haziness and a big white fluffy head. Moderate visible carbonation.

S: Grainy, lemony tart, wheat and coriander.

T: Follows the nose. A good amount of tartness, and some bright citrous with the wheat, grain and coriander. Fairly dry on the finish.

M: Light body, great amount of carbonation sensation, no alcohol presence at all.

O: This is quite a tasty berliner. Not best of class, but recommended to be sure.
