Thanks to Slatetank for hooking me up with this. Growler poured into a matching Tired Hands wine glass. The brew appears a polished clear golden yellow color. A finger of white froth comes out of solution and forms a cap that quickly and audibly dissipates.

The aroma is quite clean with an earthen grain element that is wheaty and also includes some slightly lemony lactic character. More sniffs reveal a fruit quality like apples and pears.

The flavor is fruity and tart with lemony lactic quality blending into apple and pear-like fruitiness. There is a graininess present like wheat but slightly dusty and earthen with a soft aspect that is slightly bretty.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall a solid representation of the style despite a large portion of the fermentables coming from a non-traditional source. Really nice, get this before its gone. Thanks again Slatetank for sharing.

I had this on tap served chilled in a half pint at the cafe upstairs.

the color is golden pale hazed no haze as expected with no head, however my brother had it and it had a thick white creamy cap -go figure. The smell is tangy apple with white grape sour notes and floral sweet aroma- pear? The feel is good tangy with moderate carbonation with a mix of sweet and sour with dry finish.

The flavor is great...lots of apple and green apple tartness with tangy yeast and lemony edged w/ semi sweet finish which has the fruitiness of the cider component and finish is mild with some lactic notes from bacteria and a light yeast taste. Overall A great berliner hybrid with cider the flavor of both come through.
