Growler courtesy of drabmuh. Served in Tired Hands stemware. Pours a somewhat-cloudy pale peach color with a short white head. The nose brings some crisp apple, light malt and wheat, and a moderate amount of acidity. Flavor has apple and acid with a touch of lemon. Fairly acidic. Quite nice.

On-tap, 8oz pour

Without syrup

A fairly clear straw yellow body with a thick, foamy paper white cap. Some small bubbles pushing their way north.

Hopped up Berliner, for sure. Lemony citrus, honey, with grassy notes and lactic sourness.

On the palate, the hops rise to the front. Citrus hops with a rush of lactic sourness, but never overwhelmingly tart. A nice balance with all these hops.

Light, crisp, and refreshing. Carbonation is high, as it should be for the style. The finish is probably more tart than it lets on, but the hops knock it back a bit.

A very unique take on the style. Hopped up Berliner with some nice tartness.

Thanks for the growler, Josh.

Thanks for the growler, Josh. Pours a hazed straw color with a white head. Great lemon aroma, light straw, and some tropical fruits. It’s quite clean on the nose, maybe a little bit of lemonade. The flavor is very citric and lactic. Tart lemon and lemon peel. Wheat bread gives a mild sweetness, and maybe a little bit of tropical.

From the growler that Joe (victory4me) shared the other night. Thanks!

Light yellow with a thin, white head with nice retention but no lacing. The most prominent characteristic on the nose is the Cascade hops, in the citrusy, mildly chalky glory. Along with that is a moderate grain and lactic acid sourness, with a doughy (sourdough) and cereal aromas. Too hoppy for my liking.

The palate opens a lot sourer than it smells. Clean, mildly yogurty lactic acids , it does make my mouth water a little bit. Still too hoppy, the chalky Cascade hop flavors do not work with the sourness. Quite a bit of cereal with a mild doughy flavor, this beer is drying and lactic on the finish. A solid beer IMO.

On tap at the brewpub on 7/25/12. Served in an 8oz tulip. Served without blueberry syrup.

Pour: really nice mostly clear straw with a puffy white head. Recedes to a slightly sticky rim.

Smell: Wow, get some honey, lemon, and a little bit of blueberry. really inviting.

Taste: Tart blueberries, lemon zest, and a malty biscuitness. A bite of crisp lemonade on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Fantastic carbonation. Really incredibly light and refreshing.

Overall: This beer was great. A lot of flavors for such a low abv. Wish I didn't have so much I wanted to try while there, because I could drink this for days.

Growler thanks to Beerisheaven. Poured into Sam Adams Pint Glass.

A- Pours a slightly hazy, but mostly translucent yellowish gold with decent size carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. About a quarter finger of thick foamy head that recedes to a thin layer of dense white foam that leaves nice layered lacing.

S- Sour lemons, white grapes, mixed berries, some light watermelon and other fruits, spices, and grains. Pleasant fruity smell that is definitely has a nice aroma strength.

T- Nicely balanced fruity taste between white grapes, sour lemons, kiwis, some light watermelon (the watermelon that is closer to the rind where it has both watermelon and vinous qualities), mixed with some light grains. Nice amount of sourness without being too sour.

M- Light, refreshing, easy to drink, nice carbonation.

O- This was a fantastic weissbier. It had a nice level of sourness mixed balanced with a variety of different fruit flavors that all combines for a perfect summer beer. Tired Hands definitely knows how to produce some great beers!

Raspberry Syrup also makes a nice addition to this beer. It mellows out the sourness a little bit, but provides a nice sweet lemony-raspberry flavor.

On Tap at Tired Hands, 16oz portion, numerous times, with and without syrup.

BROTHERS glides in the glass a shiny gold color with some faded yellow colors melded in. A nice white bubbly semi dense layer of foam graces the top and dies over time leaving no stick.

Smell is pretty bright with some lemon, earthy grass tones and mild funk. Not sure what this was brewed with but this strays from the normal Berliner scents with something I cant describe. Some sour apple, and with the syrup addition, it all gets muted out.

This is a kick ass berliner and in two weeks since I've had it, it has changed a bit for the better with a more apparent tang. I get ripe lemon with some underlining wheat, grass, and a small malt hit. With the reduction syrup, this all gets muted and I prefer it without the syrup. Tart, delicious, multi layered, refreshing, 3.5%

Feel is a step up from light with bubble activity throughout. The beer is alive. A lot of activity on the tounge. Spritzy. If you want extreme, go without the syrup. This is one of those growler to the head beers.

On draft at the brewpub, served with and without the blueberry lemon syrup but this review is for the non-syrup version of the beer...although the syrup really was awesome. I recommend it with the syrup.

Beer is yellow and hazy with a thin soft white head, moderate carbonation, some retention, no lacing, looks good.

Aroma is interesting, very lactic in the nose with some other organic secondary metabolic, maybe malate? hard to tell. Also a little cider in the nose.

Beer is served a little too cold but as it warms up the lactic takes over completely. Medium to light in body, a little thicker on the palate than expected but overall a nice beer, not so tart or creamy as it is just low pH acid forward in the front half, the back palate is nice but a little flat.

Adding the syrup to the beer did not make the beer sweeter, it must be due to the lemon base of the syrup but it filled out the back half with more tart and a nice finish. I really enjoyed this beer a lot and would have it again.

Thanks to Mike for the growler! Poured into a Drie tumbler. Hazy, golden straw color with a thin ring of foam on top and light lacing. White grape, yeast and straw on the nose with a light sourness throughout. Malty hay and light grape notes on the tongue. Sweet, crisp sourness on the finish. Body is light and refreshing. Overall, this was a pleasure to drink on a hot summer night. Very juicy with a nice touch of acidity.

Had on tap at Tired Hands. Poured into a nonic pint glass from draft. Pours a hazy straw color with a finger's width head that recedes quickly. Nose is light and clean with a hint of tartness. Taste is laden with tartness. Hard to describe, really. Light citrus hints; a little grassy. The mouthfeel is tart, crisp, and refreshing. Let it roll over the tip of your tongue and it's outright sour. This is a perfect summer beer. Ask for it with the blueberry-lemon syrup and its a whole 'nother animal. Excellent stuff.
