From a bottle, pours a cloudy light gold, thin wispy white head on top.

The smell is two things and two things only. Ginger root and lemon. It is really hard to pull anything more out. There is some faint lactic acid, vinegar, almost like stomach acid/vomit.

The flavors are strong and distinct. Lots of citrus, ginger and lemon. The ginger and lemon are fighting each other rather than working together. Then you add in the citric acid and this gets to be a mess and disgusting. I think there is a good idea in there, but you have to get the ginger and lemon to play on the same team.

Pour is a deeper yellow with a good bit of white head. Nose is huge musky sweat ginger with a hint of lemon and spicy tang. Taste is very sweet, tons of sweaty ginger, tangy, citrus, chlorine like mineral in the back. Bigger body, a bit juicy, softer carbonation. The spice is so strong I just can't handle it.

Extremely tart, even for this style

Batch 15. Seems from other reviews that this was ... off. Much harsher than I expect from a Berliner. The other review comparing it to cider vinegar is apt, though the lemongrass and a big ginger bite come through. It's not foul, but it's not balanced either. Literally the sourness on first drink took my breathe away and rendered me temporarily incapable of speech.
