One of my favorite beers. Mouth-puckeringly sour, refreshing as hell and packed full as flavor for something at 3%. The light fruit flavors combine well with the wheat and grass, creating a citrus and grain sour bomb. While more intense than your average Berliner Style Weiss, it's still the peak of the style. Phenomenal.

11.2 oz bottle. Totally raging carbonation. Very audible mountainous head that eventually dissipates and mutes. Ghostly hazy straw color. Bright citrus floral smell - all yeast and bacteria aroma. First sip is awesome,O obviously lactic acid that coats the mouth and doesn't linger too long. Aftertaste is distinct cherry pie Brettanomyces Lambicus flavor. Tartness is just a bit more that normal for a berliner-weizen. Lactobacillus doesn't get lost though. Wheat body is depleted in fermentation, thin and dry as expected. But the wheat flavor isn't lost. This beer holds up amazingly for a 3%er. Kind of a tooth melter, my teeth hurt after drinking this one. But very worth while. This beer kicks ass.

Review ##1400! Based on my review of a bottle I had awhile back I have always been wanting a large growler of this… Well, GBX delivered on this in the form of a one gallon growler. OH SNAP! Served from growler into a Green Man snifter. Poured golden yellow with a one finger pure white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, lemon peel, earth, tart, funk, and subtle bleu cheese. The flavor was of sweet malt, lemon zest, lemon rine, tart, sour, earth, and funk. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this is a great brew. I’m really glad it was raining all day so I could sit down and consume this entire growler in one day. At 3% ABV, this one definitely packs a punch on flavor and aroma. This Berliner definitely brings the goods for the style. If you have not had this brew before you need to fix that as soon as possible. I suggest trying it on tap as it was actually a lot more intense on the flavor aspect than the bottle. Just plain good.
Note: DO NOT drink an entire growler of this beer in a one-day session. You will regret it based on the pH imbalance in your stomach. You have been warned!

pours a sparking hazy light golden color with a big three finger head of white that clears the top of the glass and settles down lightly to a thin coating along the top. lots of carbonation bubbling up throughout the session.
aroma is light sour and acidic tartness. green apples with a mix of light hay and sour grapes. simply remarkable. as it warms the crisp and clean sour flavor really starts to come through quite nicely as the light nature of it really becomes apparent as you take the first sip. remarkable that this much flavor is coming through. crisp, clean, refreshing and light the nature of this throws me for a loop, as if it simply could not get any better. crisp green apples dominate the flavor with a light grassy note coming in the finish along with an amazing dryness.
