look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into teku glass.

A: Pours clear straw yellow with large white head.

S: Pretty faint overall. Tartness, grass and grain.

T: Also pretty mild. Tastes good, mainly it's sour apple. There is slight yeasty, graininess as well. Wish it packed a bit more punch.

M: Light body, moderate carbonation. Refreshing.

O: A very easy drinker. Wish it had a bit more intensity, but overall a positive drinking experience.

3.63/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pale straw yellow color. about a finger of a white head that fades slowly and leaves a sticky lacing on the sides. just a slight haze to it but still able to see through.

Smell: lacto bacteria. faint green apple skins. some wheat. fairly dull and not as fruity as I'd like

Taste: opens up with lacto tartness that opens up into a juicy green apple bite. backend is full of wheat.

Mouthfeel: light, refreshing with a tart twang at the end. I think the carbonation is a little low too

Overall: I think this beer has mellowed just a bit since its been bottled. the smell is a little on the weak end and the taste isn't quite as tart and fruity as i'd like. Glad I got to try it and I wish i got to it sooner but still a good berliner.

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Bottleneck says 1093 so it's a little over a year old.

A- Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains very well before slowly fading to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a large center patch of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.

S- Smells like your classic Berliner with a semi-tart wheat aroma that makes the tongue salivate.

T- Mildly tart flavor brings notes of peach, melon and apple but all very low-key. Wheat is also mild and the tartness makes the palate crave more sips.

M- Slightly dry with a restrained tartness. Medium carbonation and a light body.

O- A nice refreshing Berliner with subtle flavors and a well-controlled tartness. The only thing that might make it better is a bit more carbonation. Would be interested in trying a fresher bottle.
