4.23/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a bright and hazy gold color with a thin white head.

Aromas are very floral, grassy, with some lemon peel. Definite funky yeast going on here as well.

Beer is very tart, and lactic up front. Sharp lemon peel, hints of spiciness, and sweet malty wheat. Finish is crisp and very acidic. Very flavorful and mouth puckering.

Mouthfeel is very full and crisp, with spot on carbonation.

Overall, an excellent sour offering from Bear Republic. I had Cuvee de Bubba once and it was a bit disappointing, this one however was quite good. Reminds me of Love from New Belgium, and strikes me as more of a Wild Ale instead of a Berliner.

Serving type: on-tap
