Batch 99 poured from a 750ml bottle into a snifter glass, carefully following the instructions as to not interrupt the sediment. Unfortunately, it did not work.
SO MUCH SEDIMENT. Honestly, I am all about enjoying the yeast sediment in some of the classic Belgians such as Rochefort 10, but this was a little ridiculous. It was a pale yellow with about a 1/4 inch of gray yeast at the bottom. Not attractive. Maybe something went wrong here.
Smelled sour and yeasty. Picked up some lemon. Not much in the way of a nose, but it did give an indication of the flavor that was to come.
A typical low ABV Berliner. Tart with a slight, and this is going to sound weird, cigar smoke flavor. I think I was slightly turned off by the appearance to really appreciate the taste, but it was nice and refreshing.
A lot of carbonation. Effervescent. Sticks with you.
Unfortunately, I was very turned off by the appearance. I think something went wrong with this bottle, because I am not seeing any other complaints. I drank it, but I was so caught up with the sediment that I wouldn't let myself enjoy it to its fullest extent. I could see this being a nice representation of the style, but it was just a miss for me. If I could drink it down without being preoccupied, it would be a very refreshing beer on a warm day.

Batch 99. bottle picked up about a week ago in a Chicago trip. enjoyed from a pipeworks berliner weiss glass. beer poured such a pale yellow that it looked almost white it had a thin fizzy head that fizzed away quick. smell is super tart and super tangy lemon rind and some sour egg. Fairly cheesy which is a bit off putting. thankfully the cheese is gone in flavor. taste is relatively nice lemon sourness. Some egg, but all in all a very nicr berliner. Perfect for a summer afternoon. Nice fizziness and crisp body.
