I know that this is a session beer and I am looking forward to this beer. A monster 3 finger head that dissipated very quickly. The color of the beer is pale yellow, super pale yellow color. The clarity of the beer is slightly hazy with an immense amount carbonation bubble. The carbonation in the beer is akin to Champagne.
A very light toasty malt, bready touch of apple, and some citrus. Not much else I can detect in the nose.
A tarty apple note, lightly toasted malts, some citrus, and bready.
The mouthfeel of the beer is light, the body of the beer is light, the finish is medium and extremely high carbonation.
A very light and refreshing beer. Berliners are my go to beer for the hot summer day. This beer beats anything BMC could ever produce.

Pours a hazy maize color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of slight floral hops, slight citrus hops, slight lemon, slight bacterial funk, and slight citrus. Fits the style of a Berliner Weissbier. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a strong dryness. Tastes of slight floral hops, slight citrus hops, slight lemon, wheat, hint of bacterial funk, and slight citrus. Overall, weak appearance, good aroma, body, and blend.

Pale lemon yellow color, mostly transparent. Minimal head. Lemon and yeast aroma. Mild, white bread backbone with hints of tart lemon and veggie hop. Light as can be body. Highly bubbly and effervescent. Hint of salt. Descent. A little light in flavor and body, even for the style.

A - Pours a hazy pale gold with a three finger fizzy white head. The head recedes quickly leaving some very light lacing.

S - Aroma is lemon, wheat and some light funkiness.

T - The flavor follows the aroma. Lemon upfront followed by wheat, light lacto, and some biscuit and cracker in the finish.

M - Light bodied with high carbonation. Nice crisp mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - Very nice Berliner. Packs a good amount of flavor for 3.1%. Perfect for a hot summer day.

Pours a very pale straw color with plenty of fizziness and a thin head. The nose has tart lemony notes. Some of the tart citrus comes through in the flavor profile but it tastes quite bland even considering the style.

Bottle dated 2015. Pours a very light hazy yellow color with fizzy white head. Light citrus notes and some tartness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes tart and dry. Very nicely done berliner.
