**REVIEW NUMBER 500**
Huge thanks to eyebereej for bringing this one on his trip to Florida! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL Hill Farmstead growler into a Weyerbacher pint glass.
A: Pours a very hazy light yellow with a thin white head and a couple streams of visible carbonation meandering up the side.
S: Wow. Huge nose on this one. Very funky and tart, with wet grass and barnyard, tons of lactic acid, some lemony citrus, a bit grainy and sour as well.
T: Big sour lactic mouth-puckering up front, with a solid lemon citrus, funky and tart, with hints of barnyard. A moderate wheat graininess on the exhale, along with some serious tartness.
M: Light body, low carbonation sensation (possibly from the growler serving vessel), and low alcohol presence.
O: Excellent interpretation of a base berliner. This one has some serious tartness. This is probably the most enjoyable non-fruited berliner I've ever had, and this is coming from someone with access to Cigar City, Peg's and Wakefield's stuff. Excellent, and highly recommended. I must get more...

Umm let me preface this with the fact that I love sours, and for a Berliner weissbier, this is very sour. It has the acetic qualities of a geuze, and I can hardly detect wheatiness in the flavor. It is straight up lemon, lime rind, unripe peach skin, and Apple cider vinegar on the nose and on the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium carbonation and nice medium flavorful body, more than I expected at 4% abv.
All I can say is that I love this beer. Try it whenever and however you get a chance.

A: very light yellow. Bubbles flee quickly.
S: Sweet and tart. The malts are far more present than a typical Berliner.
T: Pickle juice with a sweet, malty finish. Quite odd, not typical of the style.
M: Puckering then almost cloying.
O: Not bad but not a great representation of the style.
