Let me precurse this review by saying I was very excited to try this. I heard nothing but positive things despite the difficulty in its acquisition. Poured from a bomber into a tulip, the brew appears a pale yellow color with a white froth slightly more impressive and retaining than your typical berliner.

The aroma contains some cereal graininess overall but it wraps things up there and doesnt display any more of the typical berliner charcter or adjuncts described. It is very muted, nothing bad smelling mind you...just without character even by berliner standards let alone a "floridian" version.

The taste is strikingly weird. A bit of dawn dish soap meets fresh cereal grain sweetness and ahhh there it is, a very minor lemony citrus aspect. The flavor wraps things up with a touch of watered down greek yogurt. But why the soapiness?

This is a light bodied brew with modest carbonation. The brew looks and feels good. However, the aroma is lacking and taste seems a bit off. I really question what went wrong with this, it cant possibly be what they were shooting for.

I really enjoyed this one. Had it on tap at the brewery and found myself wishing that i could get a growler or some cans of it. Tart and refreshing with plenty of tangerine in the smell and taste. I would drink this any day, especially while vacationiing in Florida. Delicious.
