On tap at the Peg’s Berliner Bash. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a light Ecto Cooler color with a short white head. Nose has a good dose of sour lime and accompanying peel. Nice wheat in the background of the flavor. Lime element is really nice and fits the style quite well. Light and dry with slight acidity. Really pleasant.

On-tap at Berliner Bash.

A - Pours a cool light green/moss color, white head.

S - Lime, lacto funk, light citrus peel, good tart/sour notes. Really smells like Key Lime, which I absolutely love.

T - Key Lime Pie without the graham cracker crust. Nice light lacto tartness, lime, citrus zest, and wheat in the background. Finish is tart citrus/lime.

M - Light, refreshing, good carbonation, dry tart finish.

O - Loved this berliner and thought it was just super-drinkable and refreshing. I would def have this one again, if I had the chance. Another really nice berliner from FB.

Draft at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a hazy ecto cooler/booger green color with a half finger off-white head that immediately fades away. No retention or lacing. Doesn't look very good.

The aroma of this beer is pretty crazy. Smells more like a dessert beer with lots of tart lime/citrus, subtle lactic funk and even some whip cream. Smells just like pie but not really like a typical Berliner Weiss. Pretty intense but almost artificial. Still, they nailed what they were going for.

Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a very sweet and tart lime presence. Again, it tastes very close to the dessert with lots of tart lime and whip cream but this slightly overpowers the characteristics of the style. Decent amount of sourness but only subtle lactic funk and some faint sourdough bread flavor. Really good but could have been legendary if it wasn't as one dimensional.
