-straight up yellow and cloudy. Good looking white head that resides to a thin layer the whole time
-There is some slight wheat on the nose and a bit of lemon that is mostly topped by malt liquor smell
-There is a gentle sour taste at the beginning that is kind of nice, but then the adjunct taste rolls in. It kind of tastes like they sour mashed a batch of Bud Wheat
-The mouthfeel is okay as there is some good carb and it leaves a nice, rough, sour feel to the back of your throat
-I was definitely hoping for more out of this beer, but it scored high marks in the worst 2 areas

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.
