16.9 fl oz bottled 7/5/15.

A - cloudy, murky yellowish orange, bubbly head on the pour, moves to nothing pretty quickly.

S - funk, yeast.

T - same as the nose, with a mild sour/tart/salt notes

M - standard, medium carbonation and feel

O - worth a try. I have only had a couple of these, still trying to figure them out.

Yellow beer with plenty of haze as appropriate for style. Great looking head, white, 1/2". Plenty of wheat and lemon sour in the aroma.

Taste hits the good tart and sour notes without going overboard, as far as traditional berliners made in Germany, this is one of the better ones. Plenty of carbonation, as appropriate for style as well.

This is a real solid example of a traditional berliner that is solidly consistent.
