Fluffy white head. Clear, straw yellow. Crisp, lemony tart beer. Finishes with a hit of wheat. Delicious.

This is a really basic Berliner, but was done very well. There isn't a lot of flavor, but the mouthfeel and appearance were exactly what you would expect from a good Berliner.

Appearance: Pours clear with an apple juice color; not much of a head build and what arrives passes quickly; a good quantity of bubbles continues to flow upward though there is very limited lacing

Smell: Smells like a compost bin, at first, but fortunately that fades and is replaced; lactic and somewhat funky, with a lemony tone

Taste: Lactic lemon, at the outset, with growing acidity; dry and puckery through the finish

Mouthfeel: Light body with low to moderate carbonation; nice pucker factor

Overall: Not the best Berliner I have ever had but certainly enjoyable

Tejas Berliner.

Pours a straw colored body with a delightful transparent haze, clocking at 70% opaque. Rapidly diminishing head leaving a ring of creamy carbonation on top.

Virtually no smell whatsoever. Imagination brings dry oats or cheerios to the table. That's it.

Thankfully the taste delivers a little more, with tangy yeast and notes of cantaloupe rind. Vinegar and a touch of green apple skin. Breath brings up warm breadiness. Touch of lime and seltzer on the finish.

Feel is very carbonated, slight semi-dry parch.

Overall this was a fair Berliner, nothing to wag at, but still a good drinker. I won't have it again unless I'm down in Texas, but if I were, I'm not sure if I'd pick it up again.

not sure if the beer pictured here is the same as whats in the can under the same name now or not. it not barrel aged from what i can tell, but is a fairly traditional and pretty tasty example of the style. i love that these quick sours are becoming so popular and affordable, very cool. hazy and really pale lemon yellow, light even for the style, and holding a nice white head. it smells and tastes like a hot lacto quick acid building ferment before a german yeast finishing after the boil. i like that both yeasts have flavor, a lot of times i think these are fermented out with flavorless yeast, and its always kind of missing. this one isnt real robust there, but more than the standard thats for sure, i think its a german strain, but tough to tell through all the wheaty texture and the acidity, which is high even for the style. citrus notes in the finish, and more bittering hops than i think are needed, but a refreshing as easy going glass of beer all around. thanks to claystation for sharing the can with me!
