3.18/5  rDev -13.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12 oz bottle poured into an oversized wine glass. Pours a pale golden color with a mild haze and a single finger of loose white head that retains poorly and leaves no lacings.

Aroma is of a light acidity with a touch of wet-hay like funk and some wheaty yeast in the background.

Taste follows the nose with a flabby character and not as much snap as the aroma would suggest. The funk is almost non-existant but shows up a bit on the back end. The back of the bottle describes it as 'softer and more mellow' than others of the style, and that is spot on. dissapointing.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and smooth with a mildly sweet character. Could use more acidity.

Drinkability is decent. A good starter into the Berliner Weiss style, but it ends up flat and without any distinct characteristics.

4.74/5  rDev +28.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Bought at Beertopia in Omaha, NE. I believe the quote made on it was, "It will make your back teeth curl." If I misquoted, to the employee, I apologize. To all of you, whatever the saying may have been, it definitely referred to the exceptional sourness of this beer.

By any means, my back teeth... they did curl.

Pours a pale, light straw colour. A tad hazy and a quickly dissipating white head. As it calms the head reduces and goes away entirely. It almost appears a dirty, brownish in colour as well when set under the light. It doesn't look like much, but looks can be deceiving.

The smell is quite light but has a dominant presence of lemons, a mineral tone, and dried grass. There is also a touch of sourness and wet hay.

Non of this really gives a lot of warning for the taste. The taste is big! Full of all sorts of great Berliner Weisse stuff. The taste of lemons is wonderful and not too much or too little or even too sweet. It hovers in the beginning and plunges down into the back. All the while you get a rush of wet hay, a bit of funk, some pepperiness, a fair amount of bright dirtiness/earthiness, I also get this very unique raw wheat taste that punches in really close to the end and slowly dissipates. At first the raw, even damp wheat grain taste is a bit of a shock but once you become a bit more accustom to it, it makes a lot of sense with the rest of the beer and really makes it interesting.

The mouthfeel is just as refreshing as I had hoped it to be. Crisp, a bit more sour than I had pictured it being, but thats good, and very dry. Not letting the sweet tones get in the way at all. Refreshing like no ones business.

Overall, I will buy this beer again. It is fabulous and I actually appreciate the low ABV. It makes it easy just to kick back and have a beer, with a GREAT deal of flavor and complexity, and still be able to go about doing stuff without feeling a bit fuzzy.
