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

Poured from a bottle into two snifters
TONS of head and beautifull lacing.
Excellent carbonation.
Color is light golden straw.
Nose is wonderful Berliner true to style.
Taste is good but not too dynamic.
Mouthfeel is standard for the style but nothing special same as the taste. Like a basic juice.
Overall a very well made beer. Do not reccomend though unless you are a fan of this style.

I think I have had this with my cousin down in FL but that was months ago and he sent me up this bottle. Thanks Sonny!

A- Poured from the 12oz bottle to a stange cylinder glass with a slightly hazy, extremely pale yellow body. A massive head forms to about four fingers with great retention. Thick pillows of lace at the top with a blanket coating most of the glass below that.

S- Lactic acid tartness with a somewhat lemon juice feel, white grapes and apple fruits and crusty fresh cracked grains. A slight funky straw.

T- Tart, lactic acid and cracked wheat form a flavorful base. Notes of lemons, crusty wheat bread, slight banana esters, vinous grapes, light funk, acetic and yeast spice.

MF- Extremely highly carbonation in a light overall body. The texture is beyond foamy but also a bit creamy, like a pillow on the palate. Finishes dry and tart.

Tart and refreshing are probably the key words for this brew. The body is light but it is extremely fluffy and the high carbonation lets the fruity, acidic flavors shine.

Poured from bottle into a New Glarus flute.

A: Pours a nice, cloudy pale gold with a huge white head that retains well.

S: Floral notes, lemon zest, typical wheat beer aroma, some tartness towards the end.

T: Delicious! Sour, white grape, green apple, lemon character. Smooth wheat in the finish.

M: Dry and light in body.

O: A perfect, warm weather refresher. The taste is quite complex for such a light-bodied beer, but it works magnificently.
