Pours an extremely pale straw color with no head, but still appropriately carbonated. The aroma is very tart smelling- nice lactic aroma, lemony and tangy. Delicious beer! Very lactic and tangy with lemon and yogurt flavors. Creamy and tart in the mouth with good carbonation. Excellent beer!

@ Tyler's (Carrboro)

Hazy pale straw topped with a minimal, wispy white head that vanishes, leaving the beer looking rather still. Smells like big-time acetic, lactic lemon. Flavor is sour...like, Warheads sour. Lactic, acidic, crisp lemon juice tartness that obscures whatever other flavors might be trying to poke through. Don't get me wrong, this was fun to try, I enjoyed it like I do overly spicy food; it's just one great big sour kick in the teeth without any grainy wheat for depth. Light, crisp, puckering. Too intensely acidic and one dimensional for the style and I can't imagine drinking more than maybe 10 oz. Expensive too, which in addition to the crushing sourness makes the whole thing seem more of a novelty than a truly sessionable Berliner.
