Thanks for opening this with me, BdubleEdubleRUN!

Light straw and light golden yellow with a small off-white head that leaves small dots of stick down the glass.

The aroma is a combination of white fruit (green apple and pear) along with mild lemon, wheat, and some mild sour character. Appropriate, though unspectacular.

The flavor is nice, with the mild fruit character, lemon, wheat, and sour character combining for an incredibly drinkable, enjoyable combination.

Thin to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

A nice, incredibly drinkable berliner.

- 4.0%.
A: Pours the palest of straw, an almost pale lemonade color in the vessel with no head formation, typical per style. Small collection of settleable solids collect on the bottom of the glass.

S: Tart lemon, tart citrus, spicy twang, some mandarin oranges, wheat, and souring fruit juices as well some pear juice.

T: Flavor was tart and spicy, lemon, dry orange, wehat with a spicy twang of lemonade. Sour fruit juices, pear with a good level of tartness and acidity with a touch of lime.

M: Light bodied, sour twang, puckering and a bit acidic.

O: Overall there is a good level of tart and spicy flavor here packagaed in a 4.0% abv that many can not claim that just may surprise you. Quickly dissipating head, pale straw color, sour fruitiness, tart and spicy flavor all within the general guidelines of style making for a good berliner. Not many american breweries attempt to brew such a style.

12oz bottle to .3L stange. $3 for the single. Sampled 5/23/12.

A: A semi-aggressive pour produces a thin, wispy white head that fizzes out quickly. A small bubbly ring remain around the glass for a few minutes before fading. The body is a pale straw yellow, very light in color and quite cloudy. Plenty of effervescence can be seen if you look through the haze.

S: It's all about the yeast here - brett and lacto with the typical weissbier esters layered delicately beneath a smack of wheat and rye to play off of the slight sweetness. Lightly funky, mild barnyard, plus Greek yogurt.

T: Bright acidity with a clean, tangy lactic sourness and a bright lemony citrus on the end. The small malt backbone comes through just enough to play a supporting role and adds an appropriate wheat flavor.

M: Moderate sourness with a crisp & captivating acidity throughout. The body is light but the prickling carbonation expands the intensity of flavor and brings in a puckering lemony tartness on the tail end. Dry finish with refreshing effervescence.

O: Color me impressed. Round Guys nailed the beer stylistically. If it isn't already, I hope to see this beer available in cases soon.
