look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
750 ML bottle poured into Surly Darkness Glassware, shared with scoand
A- Pours a very light golden straw color, nice carbonation coming up the sides of the glass, thin lacing, decent looking beer.
S- The aroma is very subtle, lemon zest comes out slowly, with a slight acidic tartness that lingers as well. My mouth is watering smelling this beauty, cant wait to try it.
T- The taste is very impressive, nice lemon zest flavor, tart and sour but not puckering, very balanced, some earthy notes, slight peppery taste to balance out the sour notes, slight clove as well.
M- Light mouthfeel, clean finish, very refreshing, easy drinkability.
O- Very impressed with this beer. Very easy to drink, refreshing, love the tart lemon characteristics. Very well made Berliner, but again i have not had to many berliners to compare it to. Im a Fan.

Big thanks to Cyclone8 for sending this one down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.
A: Pale yellow, very hazy, with a big fluffy white head that has poor retention. Medium visible carbonation after the big cork pop.
S: Tart, citric, moderately funky, with pale base malts and wheat. Overall impression reminds me of lemony feet.
T: Citric acid bite, light malt base with minimal husk character, barnyard and grassy funk. Lemon rind and funk in the hang with some hay-like graininess.
M: Light body, lively bubbly carbonation sensation, and no particular alcohol presence.
O: Quite tasty. Maybe not my favorite base berliner out there, but very well done. Recommended for a nice summery drink!
