a very god ale, right on for summer and super easy drinking and refreshing and all. my only issue, and its a big one, is that is this really sour mashed like a berliner should be? is it really tart? sour? funky? sessionable? lots of no and a yes there. it truly is sessionable, but there is no lacto there at all, let alone a sour mash or a funky weirdness or lemon kick. lightness is there, real sessionable and low abv and all of that, but no tart to the taste, no citrus kick or acidity, its just an ale, and for something billed as a wild, its real disappointing. the way thier oud bruin is a good beer, but not good as an oud briun, this does basically the same thing. tasty as a beer, fully, but not enough as a berliner, missing a lot of key elements. light and clean, but show me the sour!!!

Poured into an IPA glass????
A faded orangish body holds up a ... no, there is no head! Or lacing. The aroma is very tart with Granny Smith apples coming to mind. Also hints of banana and clove. The taste is pretty tart as well. You have to really try hard to pick out the malt from all of the tartness. The mouthfeel is slightly acidic!
Overall, pretty tart. Too much in fact.

2.75/5 rDev -20.7%
12oz bottle picked up at the COOP... Pours a pretty hazy dark yellow... no real head to speak of and no lacing.
Nose shows some very light yogurt qualities (that may just be in my head)... but the big player is wheaty pale malt and some yeasty phenols that remind me of clove.
Flavor is a sweet mess of fruity pear and apple esters that belong no where in the same breath of anything Berliner. xx
Body is entirely too thick... This brew is pretty much a disaster IMO.

4.11/5 rDev +18.4%
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Bottled on 5/23/14.
Appearance: Pours a very cloudy yellowish golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About one finger of white head that fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A funky, tart, and fruity wheat forward aroma with hints of spice and citrus. Wheat and pale malt with hints of straw, grains, cracker, yeast, and caramel. Big hints of the lacto funk. Spice hints of coriander, clove, and pepper. Good fruit presence with zesty hints of lemon, orange, banana, and pear. A pretty decent Hefeweizen like aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, a tart, funky, and sweet wheat driven taste with notes of fruit and spice. Wheat and pale malt with some bready notes of grains, straw, cracker, Hefeweizen yeast, and caramel. Spice notes of coriander, pepper, and clove. Big presence of lactobacillus funk. Fruit notes of lemon zest, banana, orange, green apple, and pear. A pretty solid wheat taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a somewhat high level of carbonation. Tart, sweet, prickly, and pretty smooth.
Overall: A pretty nice spin on the Berliner Weisse style. Good mix of funk and spices with some zesty fruit esters.

3.31/5 rDev -4.6%
Pours a huge, frothy, white head that has really good persistence. A nice yeasty aroma that is a touch tart. Hazy, straw color. Starts a bit tart, yeasty, and with a bit of grainy hop. Wells up into a big banana/clove yeastiness. Quite dry. Finish is biscuity malt with yeast in the background.
Overall, this isn't too bad. It's like a mildly sour hefeweizen. I like a Berliner that's most assertively tart, and a bit thinner, actually.
