4.11/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750 l bottle into a D'Achouffe tulip.

A- pours a murky pale lemon color with a 2" white head. The top of the beer looks like a jelly belly after any color is gone. Clumps and trails of small bubbles remain on the glass.

S- lactic, sourdough bread, some light lemon, and vinous notes.

T- tart and sour lemon, sour mash, slight funky cheese at the finish but it hards to get past the initial tart blast.

M- light body and high carbonation. Light creaminess comes through after the initial acidic effervescence.

O- wasn't sure at first how this was going to be at first glance and sniff. But another tasty Berliner from PW. Still enjoy their fruit Berliners more but still solid.

750 ml bottle, batch 74, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a super hazy lemon color, topped with an inch of thick white head, nice retention and lacing.

S- Tart aroma of lemon and fruit, bready malt, funky yeast and a bit of sweetness.

T- Moderate to high tartness, which has some really nice lemon and white grape skin flavors. It's noticeably more tart, which I love, than the only other Berliner I've tried by them (Blue Lady). Has some nice bready flavors, sweet wheat, a bit of mineral character and some yeast flavors in the background.

M- Light-bodied, smooth with a dry finish. Highly, highly drinkable.

O- This is awesome, it hits the style perfectly and IMO is way better without any fruit added to it. This is a really refreshing and delicious beer.

Hazy goldenrod, murky and opaque, it looks more like a glass of lemonade with heavy pulp, but the huge billowing head of white foam betrays that idea. Lots of sticky lace in the glass, spindly and delicate. Coverage is good and lasts for awhile.

Minerally lactic tartness and champagne aroma, some hints of grape and sourdough bread.

Puckering tartness right away, lemon and grape fruits ride alongside a cleanly sour and bracing acidity. Dry and quenching finish, true to style with a bit of amped up lemony sourness. Great stuff, its definitely an extremely quaffable beer. Really enjoyed drinking the bottle and would love to see it on tap around town in the warmer months.

Glad I picked up two of these, and will try to grab a couple more for when spring finally rolls around.
