Wow. For the abv there is tons of flavor. The tartness is unmistakeable. Just plain BU is awesome and crushable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

32oz growler poured into a berliner bowl. This pours a hazed darker than expected golden color with a finger of quick dissolving head. Other than the light copper-like coloration, all things seem typical of your standard berliner.

The smells is lemony lactic with suggestions of strong greek yogurt and hints of sulfur. At times this flirts with acedic aromas and fruit faintly like cherry which is strange yet quite inviting. I am salivating before evwn getting into the glass.

The taste is tart and lemony lactic with suggestions of greek yogurt all through the middle just like the aroma suggested. The finish has a bit of dusty grain almost like brett or cracker crumbs. As it warns up, it gets even more tart to almost acedic with a mild almost chlorine feel to it which is strange in the aftertaste.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest to moderate amount of fizzy feel and carbonation. Overall this is a pretty solid berliner that I would love to drink again if the opportunity presented itself. My only gripe is that my idealistic berliner is one that I could crush glass after glass of in the summertime. This one has some serious bite to it and while sour heads might rejoice, I am left wishing the second pour didnt feel so much like a chore.
