**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...
Serving type: growler

A: Pours a hazy straw color with no head.
S: Lemon tartness in the nose, and a touch of wheat.
T: Sour and very lemony, lemon overpowers everything else, only a touch of wheat is noticeable. Something syrupy and a touch of funk, as well. Despite the strength of the lemon, it's well balanced.
M: Medium bodied and average carbonation.
O: Recommended if you like sours. I enjoyed it.
Note: Imbibed at the cellar reserve party, from batches that would go on to the various festivals, thus ensuring the beer was in it's prime.
Serving type: on-tap
