This is a decent Berliner-weisse. Seems to be kind of a grainy tone to things though. The sour and tart seems mild and is in no way abrasive. Naturally, I could deal with a sharper amount of it all. It does seem to be more pronounced as it warms up. Aas it is, it's a pretty decent example of the style.

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

Appearance: 1 inch head, straw yellow in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: honey, wheat, pear, and yellow apple

Taste: wheat, pilsner malt, faint pear and lemon

Mouthfeel: high carbonation, super light bodied, sweet with a moderate amount of tartness

Overall: I really enjoyed this one and think it is one of Ithaca's better beers. Super sessionable. It tastes like a good pilsner mixed with a Berliner Weiss. Nice, light, and refreshing.

Pale golden straw color pours with an effervescent white head, nice looking Berliner Weiss here folks. Even fine speckled lacing looks great poured into a flared chalice. Aromatics bring out tart lemon notes, slightly chalky yeast components, and some yogurt like lactic notes combined complexity into a refreshing summer release from Ithaca brewing company. Clean bright tartness, refreshing chalky yeast component, lacks any off putting phenolics which is a good thing. Lemon, tartness would work perfect with some cilantro spiced pico de gallo mahi mahi fish tacos. Mouthfeel finishes dry like the backend of the sour scale of a Warhead/sour patch kid candy, carbonation is moderate rolling cleanses the palate with the nice bone dry finish. Overall a quality version of an under served style, more summer refreshers slightly sour and funky works for my palate.
