Tasted 20 July 2013. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a very pale straw yellow, clear from the top of the bottle, cloudy from the bottom. One finger white head, nice retention and fuzzy lacing.
Smell is a soft grainy aroma, with a little bit of sour and lemon. On the faint side.
Taste is a really nice balance of ripe wheat and light lemony sour. It's just enough sour that you can't miss it, but subtle enough that it's not mouth-puckering. Delicate and really nicely balanced; delicious.
Feel is quite light-bodied, fizzy, like a cross between a typical wheat ale and a typical sour. Has the slightly prickly carbonation of a sour, but also the fuzzy soft carb of a wheat ale. Awesome.
A really nice berliner weisse. Has a great green mid-summer wheat feel, and the touch of sour makes it all the more refreshing.

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!
