3.1/5 rDev -15.8%
Appearance: Dark yellow, almost orange. It is not really the pale straw color I would expect for a Berliner Weiße. Quickly dissipating head, which settled to no foam, not even lacing. Not visually spritzy at all. Extremely disappointing appearance.
Smell: Lightly citrusy, with a definate undertone of funk... in a good way. I think a bit more carbonation may have helped the smell develop a bit more.
Taste: Light wheat and sour, which yields to a nice citrus flavor. Not overwhelming, quite pleasant.
Mouth-feel: This feels a little heavy for the style. I expected something a bit thinner.
Overall: I really wanted to like this one. Being from St. Louis (home to this brewery) and having lived in Berlin (home to this style), I really felt like this was a perfect beer for me. The beer itself came up a bit short. The taste and smell were decent, but that's the only positive comment I have. I may try this with a bit of Waldmeister syrup, but it is already under carbonated and heavy, so it may be a waste. I do applaud 4 Hands for taking a stab at the style (most breweries are not that bold), but they need to sample a few of the real thing and start over.
