Cork and cage 750. Nice little pop!
Pours a fizzy white head that settles down. Active carbonation in the glass.
Aroma: A lot of funk here. Sour funk. A nice lemon zest. Yeast and wheat. Barnyard goodness. A lot of flavor for such a low abv beer.
Taste: A lot of wheat up front. Sour lemons and zest. Bananas. A bit of red apples. Fairly fruity. Fairly funky. Not as much barnyard flavor here. A nice acidic flavor; nothing overwhelming.
Mouthfeel: Light, sour, and clean. Extremely light bodied. Decent amount of carbonation. Ends very clean.
Overall, this beer is spot on. I know I am not a b-weisse expert, but this tastes very German and authentic. I am a big fan of this. It is so easy to drink and provides way more flavor than you would expect from a 3.5% beer. A must try.

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!
