I saw this bottle for 4.99 and couldn't believe it. I asked the store clerk if it wsa a mistake and meant to say 14.99 (the price point for other New Holland sours), I was assured that the 4.99 was correct, how could I pass it up?? Pours a clear golden with no head. The nose features a heavy waves of lactobacillus along with notes of corn, wheat, and lemon. A touch of white wine and oak makes an appearance as well. The taste is plenty tart with wheat, grain, lemon, grape, and oak all present. It picks up in tartness as it goes and has a nice crisp finish. Mouthfeel is well carbonated and very light in body. Overall, not a bad Berliner at all. There is a nice wave of sourness and a high level of drinkability. Worth a try!

22 oz bottle into a goblet.

A: Pours a clear golden color. The head is about a finger high, with a white shade. Retention flat-out sucks, and there isn't much lacing left on the glass. It looks like a flat, cheap lager basically.

S: I'm a bit surprised by the acetic presence here. Some notes of lacto and cheesy funk can be found, but given how tart it smells, it could pass for a decent sour ale at times. But it's not perfect - I'm not sure where this faint meaty presence is coming from. Still, though, a pleasant surprise coming from a Berliner.

T: Oh wow, that is tart! As expected, the tart attack is front loaded on the palate (primarily acetic/vinegary, but there's still some lacto in there). Once it fades, though, the flavor transforms into mostly diacetyl. Awww maaan. And really, this is all it brings - tartness and some lesser buttered popcorn. No subtle fruitiness, no perceptible wheat, no nothing. Even worse, it doesn't seem to integrate that well - if it did, I might just be singing its praises right now.

M: The feel is pretty rough/tannic, as expected from a sour. Because of the diacetyl, though, it doesn't really go down that easily. There's a lot of carbonation as well.

O: I'll give it credit - it's both sour AND cheap ($5/bomber). It just doesn't seem to have much balance, though. Sure, the sourness is nice, but it's devoid of the lesser subtleties that make sour ales great. Since it's so cheap for a sour, I still think it's worth trying if one needs a cheap tart fix.
