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.
