Super haze. Trudge yellow color with a murky middle. Poor head formation.
Tart wheaty nose with lemony spank, yeast protein, light hay, and a squeal of fusel. True Berliner nose, just shy of outstanding.
Lemony sour, green apple, and faint bubblegum, but very dry. Coated with musty spring wheat malt and brined with yeast nuttiness. Awesome acidity level. Good stuff.
Super refreshing. Lightly puckery with a smooth body. A little rustle from residual carb that doesn't disintegrate.
A damn good Berliner, if not just a tad too heavy.
Serving type: on-tap

From bottle poured into teku glass, Appearence is hazy straw yellow with frothy head that hung around for awhile.
Aroma is light bready malt with citric tartness. Mostly clean lemon aroma that you get from lacto. No hop aroma.
Taste starts with a prickly carbonation with some wheaty sweetness with a wash of the bright tartness mid palate. Mostly getting a lemon peel flavor with some sour apple as well. Finishes with a pilsner malt sweetness that in combo with the citric tartness leaves you wanting more. Hard to tell the ABV is that high on this one except for a fuller mouthfeel than a standard berlinner. Solid stuff from Hopfarm.

Poured a cloudy, light golden body with minimal head and lace. Sour, tart aroma, comprised mostly of some funk and sour, citric fruit notes - can't really get a hold on aroma other than "sour". Beer is light, and yes, sour, but really smooth and never puckering so you always want another sip. There is basically a citric sharpness, think not hops but lemon/orange, with touches of spice and a very minor but pleasant sweetness on the end which gives balance. I guess for this style the sweet edge might turn off some but it was pleasant to me and this is a very enjoyable sour style beer to relax with.

Golden hue- slight haze; not cloudy at all.
The nose is nice, with a tinge of acidity and a slight funk. I get earthy, grassy notes as well.
There is a perfect balance with this beer. Up front I get an easy drinking, wheat aspect that fades way to a citrusy/ lemon rind bitterness that hits your jaw ever so slightly with the mouth puckering quality I love in a sour. the finish is a dry and you find yourself going back for more. The alcohol is HIDDEN...7.5% and this thing drinks like it's 3%! Goes down dangerously.
Nice carbonation, perfect head, slight lacing and a lasting effervescence.
This is a collaboration effort for Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week by Hop Farm Brewing and Box Office Brew Review. This is also Hop Farm's first bottle release. Overall this is a rock solid beer. I only wish this were a regular staple as I would down a growler on a consistent basis.

After being forced to try this beer before I got a growler, I got really nervous. It tasted of grain and didn't seem too good. I'm glad I went for the growler anyways.
This seems to me very much like a beginner Berliner Weisse. The brewer described it as an imperial berliner weisse, whatever that means. I'm calling it a Berliner Weisse with training wheels. Nice mild tartness, and I do mean very mild. Seems like sweet lemons almost. Like I said, this is a beginner's version of the style. Very easy to drink. I wonder what the bottled version will be like. I may go out of my way to pick some up.
