Reviewed from notes

A: Pours a hazy pale golden color, almost creamy in appearance, with almost no white head.

S: Tart funk, lactic sour, wheat, and something just a little rustic.

T/M: Light body with moderate carbonation and a drying finish -- the mouthfeel of this beer is its best feature. Just a little oily and very coating, despite the light body. Flavor is very clean with hints of tart fruits, perhaps cherry; a slight earthy funk; and citrus juices, orange among them.

O: Nice but not great. Honestly, this is on the lower end of the SARA brews I've tried in terms of my enjoyment. It's clean, light, drying, and very drinkable, so it's a fine example of its style. That said, New Glarus just does it better as far as I am concerned, and they do it for 1/4 the price and in a much more accessible way. I'm glad I got to try this, but would not go out of my way to get bottles unless they were for someone else.

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.
