Very light haze. Very pale straw color. The head whipped up great. Looked awesome for about fifteen seconds, then it almost completely deflated.

Grassy wheat malts, lemon, some yeast phenolic aromas with medicinal notes, and a smidge of light smoke. Nice.

Standard weisse flavors of light wheat, tangy lacto tartness, lemon, and there's some more added phenolics. Not as grassy as the nose, but those herbaceous qualities are there. Thin-bodied, with a good combo of carbonation rustle and esophagus tartness sting. More acidic feeling than it is sour. Likeable.

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.
