Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip.
LOOK: Pours with two finger's worth of white foam that shrivels down to a quarter's worth after 35 seconds. Pale yellow in color with an extreme amount of cloudiness. Once the foam head settles, rising bubbles hardly exist. Lacing hardly exists, too.
SMELL: Strong sour yeast aromas meet with subtle wheat and lemony zest aromas.
TASTE: Extremely strong sour yeast flavors (this has to be the most sour beer I have ever had) and mild wood flavors compose the intial flavor. Subtle wheat flavors and a hint of lemony zest finish off this sour bomb as intial flavors continue in strength.
FEEL: Medium-bodied and it's hard to tell how carbonated this is due to its sourness. The sourness simultaneously numbs and stings the tongue. It goes down sticky and that's about it.
NOTE: So sour, but so good.

On tap at whole foods. Pours a murky pale yellow, almost looks like grapefruit juice. Smells of funk and a little citrus, maybe lemon. Taste follows, tart and citrus, again hint of lemon. Nice feel, easy to drink.

Bottle stamp of 4-14-14

Pours a bright yellow orange with some haze, minimal head. Smells tart, apricot, yeast funk, all muted by wheat grainy aromas. Taste is tart citrus notes, lemon, lime, creamy wheat textures through the middle and a lemony bitterness at the end. Texture is smooth, a bit creamy and yeasty. Great Berliner Weisse, very refreshing and low alcohol. An all-day drinker, and super reasonable for most Bruery pricing- $8.99 at my local shop.
