375 ml bottle poured into my FFF snifter.

A- Body is a uniformly hazy straw yellow hue. Very translucent/hazy. Pours with a massive 3 finger+ foamy, frothy, bubbly white head. The head fades completely within seconds leaving no lacing or collar.

S- The nose is soft- but definitely tart and funky. Brett is the main aspect with acidic tart citrus in the background. A hint of bready, sweet yeast also comes through.

T- Flavor is much more bold than the nose. Tartness and sour upfront with a funky brett backbone. The flavor becomes much more sour for the finish- which is rather dry with not much going on. Some sour lingers on due to its intensity upfront.

M- Mouthfeel is light and spritzy with a high level of assaulting carbonation. Very dry.

O- Overall this is a nice berliner. I'm surprised by the dryness of the body. It gives the impression of a sour champagne. The brett and the yeast are definitely more present in the nose than in the flavor and mouthfeel. This is a nice sour-but its pretty simple rather than complex. I'm definately looking for more wheat characteristics in a berliner too.

Night of the Funk

A-Pours a hazy, milky pale yellow. Thin head. Difficult to assess the head with the small pour.

S-The nose was very, very faint. A bit of Brett and wheat. Lightly tart. Really soft.

T-The flavor is a far cry from the nose. It jumps on the palate. Powerfully tart, especially for such a pint sized brew. Limes and Brett. Hay and wheat. Sourdough bread.Really unique.

M-I want to substitute this for water.

O /D-The nose was shy but the flavor really crazy and I enjoyed it a lot. A ton of flavor at 3%. What a cool beer.
