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.

Comes out a very faint yellow with plenty of wheat haze throughout it, makes for a pretty white head on the top, almost one full inch. Good carbonation. Aroma was wheat, lemon, tartness.

Taste dropped just the right amount of tartness to keep it firmly in the berlinner weisse category instead of where some have gone straight into American Wile Ale territory. This is a pretty traditional example methinks. Super light mouthfeel, always a pleasure to drink, I put away a lot of these, drink a couple bottles a month during the summer for sure. Nothing like these on a dirt back road. Amazing how much flavor they've packed into a 3% beer, hope you like wheat, lemons and a tart summer beer, this is the prototype.

Amazingly consistent as well.
