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.

3.98/5 rDev -3.2%

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.

First had: on tap at TH
I've learned that Tom Culton's actual full name is: "The Mystery That Is Tom Culton." (Name of future collab brew?)
Golden yellow pour, slightly hazy, with a finger of fizzy white head that srizzled out of existence within seconds, though a few bubbles rose from the bottom of the glass at random. Appropriate for the style in general. Aroma of toasted wheat, mildly sour, hints of the cider fruits: apple, pear, quince. Similar taste, base of toasted wheat and husky grains, a moderate sour twang, apple, pear, quince, lemon juice. Light body, crisp, prickly mouthfeel. Nice brew overall, though my preference was for CultonHop.
