Pours a beautiful old gold and clear - left about an once of beer along with the sediment in the bottle. The carbonation is ridiculous, not a gusher when opened, but in my duvel tulip the bubbles are crazy for thr nucleation point on the glass - never seen abeer so carbonated. Nose has some really bright lemon with a slight acidic funk. Taste is bracing citrus and acidity but the sourness was far from overpowering. Finishes very refreshingly and begging for another sip. Outside of festina peche my only other attempt at this beer. My girlfriend who loves festina says that this beer was better and i tend to agree

A: Pours a fizzy white head, bigger bubbles that disappear at a higher rate. Looks nice and clear, turned cloudy towards the end of the bottle when the yeast was stirred up a bit.

S: Lemon, sour some malt

T: Lemon, slight sour, slight acidic taste. I could still taste some of the tartness when I licked my lips.

M: Nice fizzynness reminiscent of a lower carbonated deus, etc

O: Light and lightly tart, refreshing concoction, it actually reminds me of my wifes prosecco (Italian sparkling wine) a bit. This was my first berliner weiss, it seemed nice I've rated it 4's across the board.

Smooth and a classic tart Berliner Weisse. Easy drinking but nice character.
