On-tap at Monk's Cafe, Philadelphia, PA

A: The beer is hazy pale light yellow in color. It poured with just some specks of bubbles on the surface and a minuscule white collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sourness are present in the nose along with hints of lactobacillus.
T: The taste has light amounts of creamy yogurt (from the lactobacillus) and sourness. The yogurt flavors seem to become a little stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with bits of creaminess.
O: This beer is easy to drink and refreshing. It makes for a good selection on a summer day.

Serving type: on-tap

tap at the brewpub

Pours a very light golden with a white lacing.

Smells of light grassy malt and a hint of lactic tartness.

Flavor is of lemon citrus, lactic acid, and a bit of dry grassy malt.

Light body with a stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A pretty good berliner, a style gaining popularity rapidly. I've had a few I like better, but this one is worth a shot if you're looking to try one, it represents the style well and is very drinkable if you are good with sour tastes.

appearance - light pale yellow with (maybe i was too drunk) a bit of green. well carbonated, not much of a head but very active and decent lacing.

smell - not so impressed here, green apple, minor tart.

taste - much of the same business.

mouthfeel - a bit sugary but it seems a bit more tart once its been in your mouth a while

not overly impressed but its still good by all means.

On-tap at the Berliner Bash.

A - Pours golden yellow, white head, no lace.

S - Citrus, lacto, funk, and hay. The tartness is light and enjoyable, and just right for a 3-4% berliner, IMO.

T - Similar to the nose, nice and tart. Crisp hay, lacto, funk, and a nice tart citrus note. Really nice berliner type flavors that make this one easy to drink on a hot summer's day.

M - Light, good carbonation, chugable, dry finish.

O - A nice berliner from Peg's, yet again. Really easy to drink and so refreshing. I would love to have this again in the future (along with all other Peg's berliners). Good stuff.
