On tap at CBC 2016. Hazy peach with a white head. Dry, fruit sour and some vinegar. Light and easy to drink.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from crowler into a Cigar City snifter glass.

A: Pours a very hazy medium gold with a couple fingers of white fluffy head that fades quickly. Lots of visible carbonation.

S: Lactic tartness, vague fruitiness, and lemony citric. Light malt bill with some husky character that isn't overwhelming but does detract from the aroma.

T: Tart citrus, notes of tropical fruit, and lemon citric acid. Again, that husky taste to the malt bill similar to the aroma, but about typical of CCB sours. Finishes dry with residual tart fruit.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, and low carbonation sensation.

O: Tasty Berliner, but nothing to go over the top for. Not as good as CCB's Rainbow Sherbet, but definitely enjoyable in its own right.

A ridiculously refreshing brew with huge citrus flavor and a dry, tart finish. The 32oz Crowler I got from the taproom made for the perfect vessel to drink from on the beach. Of all the beers I tried from this brewery, this one felt the most at home in the Florida heat.

On tap at Cigar City on Tampa, FL.

This one pours a slightly hazy bright orange, with a small head, and no lacing.

Smells like sour blood orange, with a hay like funkiness, and lots of lemon.

This has a ton of great sour orange flavors. It's a really sell done Berliner, with some stinky Brett funk, and lots of lactic acid. So drinkable.

This is light bodied, with a crisp and tart mouthfeel.

One of the more drinkable Berliners I've had. Awesome stuff.
