Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass.
A: Hazy, pale yellow color with two fingers of loose white foam that collapses to a stable cap. Scant lacing remains on the glass.
S: Tangy and unctuous, with enough traditional bread qualities to make the smell seem deep for the style.
T: Begins dry, with bready wheat and lactic tartness that is cut by the softness of the wheat. For that reason the grain lingers more convincingly on the palate while the acidity seems a bit stale and disjointed.
M: Thin viscosity, soft on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: Clean and traditional; quite refreshing. Although it seems a bit lifeless after it is allowed to sit, it is nice to see a domestic berlinerweisse executed by the numbers.

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!
