12 ounce can into tulip glass, best before 12/16/2018. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy medium golden/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy/tart/tangy blueberries, lemon juice, lime, orange, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruit, fruity/acidic yeast, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/tart/tangy blueberries, lemon juice, lime, orange, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness and fruit tang on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy blueberries, lemon juice, lime, orange, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruit, fruity/acidic yeast, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness and tangy fruit balance; with no puckering flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tartness, tangy fruit, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy/acidic/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is an excellent fruited Berliner weisse. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruit, fruity/acidic yeast, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the modestly acidic/tangy/drying finish, not overly lactic. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Awesome balance of authentic juicy fruits, Lacto complexity, and pale/wheat malts against acidity. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

12oz can. Poured out a hazy, golden color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of lemon, wheat and faint blueberry. Very tart with lemon and a very mild blueberry presence.

Tart, hits you hard up front. You get used to it quickly. Lemon hangs in the whole sip.

Taste rating in words: A pucker punch, all in your face, not holding back.

Taste: bold and snappy, lemon, the blueberry was more subtle, tart and sweet. Giant lemony nose. Pale gold hue, white head some lace. Medium body. Summery, like drinking liquid Lemondrop candy.
