Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I first tried this back-to-back with the Brett-ed version, but that was a while ago, and I only have this bottle now. Cool story, bro. Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly hazy straw topped by over a finger of relatively short-lived white foam. The nose comprises mildly-tart lemon zest, a twist of tart orange zest, some light sweet flowers, and a touch of mild sweet biscuit in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, with a stronger tartness throughout. However, due to its incredible lightness and crispness, the bulk of the flavor only lasts a short time, leaving a small squad of tartness to linger for a bit. The body is fairly light, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp, dry finish. Overall, a damn solid Berliner, something that can deliver some sour without tearing the enamel from your teeth and can do so on a nicely regular interval.

pours very pale hazy golden yellow. a bit of head that quickly fades.

nose is weak, some faint pale malt. a hint of tartness.

pretty tart. starts off tart, gains a bit in strength, then fades to a pale bread malt.

has a bit of bite to it, does not feel as thin as it is.

pretty good berliner overall. i plan on getting some more. perfect for summer.

Appearance: Very pale yellow, impressed with the clarity for a wheat beer, very, very carbonated.
Smell: Very mild lactic acidity, maybe some light wheat and noble hops.
Taste: Light, fluffy, dry, some tangy acidity, very fast finish. Very low on taste, although there certainly is some, the finish is so fast that you cannot really savor this beer. Low bitterness. Enjoyable, refreshing, but pretty simple in terms of complexity - which is not entirely unusual for this style.
Mouthfeel: Very, very dry. Would like it to hang around just a bit longer. Still, I appreciate how it is so refreshing, and the "fluffyness" I referred to, which I attirbute to the wheat.
Overall: Nice Berliner, could use a little more pop.

Bottled 9/13/2012

Poured into a glass chalice.

It pours a murky, yellow-brown color - kind of like straw. There's one finger's worth of head and it disappears within seconds. No retention and no lacing whatsoever. There's citrus on the nose with some yeasty bread as well, but not much going on. The first thing that hits me is the carbonation which is very aggressive. Then the tartness hits me...it's very tart and the depth of flavour isn't quite there to balance it out or back it up. I find that i'm puckering more than i'm savoring it. There's some lemon and orange going on and overall, it's a refreshing berliner, but that's about all it has going for it. It's a one-trick pony and far from special.
