4.26/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle of batch 2. Poured into a mini-snifter 4/26/2014.

A- Light and hazy straw-yellow coloured body, two finger white head with great retention, some lacing. Looks like spritzy lemonade.

S- Smells acidic- vinegar, a bit of lactic acid although less than what I have experienced in other Berliner Weisses in the past. Lemon zest, citrus flavours dance in my nose. Not super complex, but smells very refreshing.

F- Palate cleansing acidity, perhaps 5/10, mixed in with citrus flavours evoking orange, lemon and lime. A little bit of lactic acidity, and a strong wheat character that could have fooled me into thinking this was a soured hefeweizen. I would have liked some more lactic yogurt flavours to add some more complexity, but this is still very good.

M- Medium bodied, a bit on the thin side. Great palate cleanser, as the finish is a nice dry, lemon zest acidity. Very refreshing, the epitome of the berliner weiss drinking experience.

O- Very refreshing Berliner; not the most complex or interesting. I have to imagine that adding fruit to this would get this up to the next level, though.

3.88/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle poured into a taster.

Appearance - Hazy yellow orange. Small white head. No real retention.

Smell - Gritty and grainy. Very acidic. A little bit of barnyard.

Taste - Very tart. Citrus. Reminiscent of a berliner. Grainy wheat and malt. Not much like a saison but it's good.

Mouthfeel - Very light and crisp. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Pretty good. Nothing like a saison though.
