A buddy of mine brought me up a gallon (yes gallon) growler of this from the CCB tasting room. Poured it into New Glarus flute.

Great pale yellow color with a nice short-lasting head. The smell is funky, but in a good way. The overall taste is a tart lemony zest with a great malty, bready aftertaste that lingers. Exactly what I like from Berliners and Goses. Can't get enough of the aftertaste. Great carbonation. Overall, this is exactly what I was hoping it would be and glad to have a full gallon to enjoy throughout the week.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Served in a snifter glass.

A: Light golden yellow, moderate haze, with good visible carbonation and a small white head.

S: Light lemony wheat, grainy, and moderately tart and funky.

T: Starts with tart flavors, grainy wheat, light citrus - tastes more tart than aroma. Nearer the swallow comes some funk and just a bit of barnyard.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, no alcohol presence at all.

O: A quality, well-made base berliner. I'm wondering if this was an attempt to nail down a base recipe for the style that will lead to many fruited ("Florida weisse") varietals. I hope so.

A-hazy yellow straw. Juice like cloudiness with a thin yellow head.
A-little to no nose. Light straw and citrus notes.
T-tart lemon rind up front, smooth clean middle with a wreak grain aftertaste
M-thin body with little mouthfeel. Clean sour/bitter finish.
O- Delicious berliner Weiss that could have benefitted from a little more body. Flavor wise one of the best I've had.
