look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- Transparent, pale straw colored body with a fizzy slightly off-white head that dissappears quickly. Head is noticeably fizzy and sounds like a soda as it settles. Lots of carbonation bubbles cling to the sides of the glass as well.

S- A pungent wheat aroma with just a hint of tart fruity aromas.

T- Exceedingly tart, with hints of sour. The wheat is surprisingly noticeable for a very low abv beer. After the initial tart gives way to the wheat, the finish is somewhat earthy.

M- Very light, crisp and bubbly. Finish is somewhat sticky with lots of tartness.

O- It's a good example of the style and one of the most tart Berliner Weisses I have tried. The stickiness at the end makes a whole 750ml a little tough to finish.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance
Pale straw with 2 fingers of white head. Hazy with moderate-heavy carbonation.

Nose
Lactic sourness, lemon juice and wheat.

Taste
Lactic sourness along with lemon juice and tangy wheat. There’s a hint of strawberry sweetness. Finishes with a touch of chestnut as well as a Warheads candy essence.

Mouthfeel
Light bodied, crisp, tart and refreshing.

Overall
This is a fantastic Berliner! $9.60 for a sour that you can drink all day? RIGHT ON!

A - Pours a pale yellow with a slightly cloudy body. The tight, bright white head dissipates quickly.

S - Very tart on the nose with lemon and some vinegar. Also, acidic with some grain qualities.

T - Just a lemon tart bomb with the wheat in the background.

M - Light bodied, medium carbonation and oh so drinkable with a dry finish.

O - Not complex, very simple and downright enjoyable to drink.
