3.7/5  rDev -12.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Cloudy dull yellow body, which after some thought, reminded me of pineapple juice. Bone-white head was several fingers' high on initial pour, but fizzled down to nothing after a minute or so, with no lacing to speak of.

S: Some barnyard and that funky sweetness, along with lemons and a bit of lactic notes.

T: Don't get as much brett in the taste, as the sourness is pretty strong. Very bright and tart.

M: Fairly strong carbonation all the way through, but it doesn't ever feel like it's in the way.

O: It was refreshing and easy to get down, but I felt that it was a bit one-noted, as the tartness dominated all other flavors in the taste. I think with a bit more age there will be a better balance.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a: This was a lightly hazy, extremely pale golden corn color. It poured with a fast living fizzy head.

s: Green apples and earthy, wet grains.

t: This was very tart, but not obnoxiously so. Lots of green apples like the smell, but there was a lot more here. Some vinegar with mineral elements and something that tasted faintly of decayed funk. That last bit was vaguely cheesy. There was a long, lingering flavor of sour lemon candies.

m: Crisp and refreshing.

o: Unique, I'm very glad I got to try this. Not something I'd crave often but I definitely enjoyed it.

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: It is a very pale yellow color, lighter than the color of straw. It looks like pear or light apple juice. There is a white fizzy head that disappears as quick as a soda would. The beer is opaque, and eventually leaves no head or lacing at all. It looks like fruit juice in the glass.

S: It smells extremely sour. It has a grapefruit smell, with a musky scent in the background.

T: It has an expectantly sour flavor, like sour grapes and lemon juice combined. It's very puckery. The flavor is somewhat watered down.

M: The mouthfeel is very bright and vibrant. Despite the visible lack of carbonation, the sourness gives an apparent liveliness to the beer. It is light bodied, bordering on medium, and is very dry.

O: Overall it's a good beer and I would drink it again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a hazy lemon aid color with almost not head at all.  The little bit of head that fights to stay afloat as you pour doesn't last more than a second or two.  A steady stream of bubbles rises from the center of the glass and mesmerizes me as I stare at the glass.  No lacing at all.

S: Strong Brett up front creating a funky, farmy, earthy aroma that is extremely pleasant.  Citrusy as well, but it's somewhat muted that smells a little like lemon-lime soda.  Overall, the aroma is a little more subdued that I was expecting, but what's there is really, really nice. 

T: The initial sip brings a pretty good punch of lemon tartness and a bit of vinegar that mellows only slightly with other sips.  Remains quite tart throughout the entire glass.  Brett comes out very nicely, again creating a nice funkiness with some grass and straw.  Finishes with some lemon zest and earth. 

M: Medium bodied with a good bit of carbonation.  Quite tart and tingly on the tongue.  Finishes pretty dry. 

D: An amazing sour berliner weisse that doesn't disappoint at all.  Very drinkable, yet, I want to sip smaller and smaller sips as the glass empties.  Extremely tasty and tart and an excellent little sour beer.  I'm going back to the beer store I saw these at in SC to clean them out tomorrow.  Fantastic!

Interesting beer. A true berliner at 3%.

The carbonation was too high, which affected the appearance of the beer. After opening, the sediment was pushed up from the bottom with a gush of foam which made the beer was then cloudy.

This beer smells lovely, very funky and fruity. The taste is very dry and tart with a definite brett character. Not bad, but I wouldn't recommend.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a tulip.

A - Hazy golden yellow, very fluffy and fizzy white head that disappears quickly. No head lingers.

S - Belgian brett funk with a wheat backbone. One of the funkier Berliner Weisses that I've smelled.

T - Wow, a blast of sour. Real sour upfront, which I like luckily. The back allows some of that wheat and softer beer to come through making quite the contrast. I really like how sour this is, I can see how the Berliner in the background is lost a little, but I'm ok with it.

M - Lots of carbonation, to a fault really. If toned down a smidge, this beer would have been more drinkable. Though the initial sourness makes for a slow drinker. Soft mouthfeel though after the sour fades away.

O - Great berliner weisse, and I enjoyed it. I had this on tap and was amazed, and it's still just as good out of the bottle. If looking for a sour forward berliner weisse, this is perfect.

Tiny bottle poured into my CCB tulip.

A: Clear as can be light yellow, really almost white. A huge amount of foam is produced from a smooth pour.

A: Huge nose for a 3% brew. Funk and horseblanket, with notes of grapefruit, lemon and citrus. An herbal quality from the hops is a plesant detraction from the funk.

T: Again, does not dissapoint. Big notes of horseblanket and citrus fruit. The herbal notes balance very well with the Brett. Finishes like water, no alcohol.

M: very light, but expected. Great carbonation, just perfect for the style.

O: I was very impressed by this beer. It was the highlight of a night that included brews such as Black Tuesday and Sour in the Rye, and this one is only 3% (I still can't beleive that). Pick this one up if you can.

Hazy white gold with a white head that pops and fizzes. Nose is the amazing and beautiful pineapple upside-down cake scent that comes from the mix of wheat and brett lambicus. Taste is tart, mildly sweet preserved lemon on pineapple upside-down. Awesome. Touch of flint mineral/well stone in the back end. Lemonade like body. I love love love this version. More please!

Review #700

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip.

Appearance: Noisy, active, pale, cloudy yellow with huge white head at first, which dies down.

Smell: Very tart and dry, with farmhouse Brett-funk, lemony citrus and pepper.

Taste: Very, very tart, with a strong emphasis on lemon. Some light mustiness and white pepper, but mostly like sucking on a lemon. I mean that in an endearing way.

Feel: Very light bodied and highly carbonated. Extremely tart and dry finish.

Overall: I am not sure I have mentioned that this is tart. Oh, and this is 3% abv - impressive.
