Source/Serving: 500mL bottle, no expiry date

S: Reminiscent of champagne, as expected. Pear, white grape, a touch of apple bread. Bright, zesty tartness is full, but soft. Shows a hint of mild funkiness, but its gentle and adds a mysterious complexity. Very nice.

T: Bubbly tartness pops into the mouth at first, almost blocking the ability to taste. The feel is not unpleasant, however, and reminiscent of champagne. Flavors are bright, sour patch kids tangy with lemon-lime citrus notes at first. Very crisp. In the middle there is a nice flavor modulation with more apple-pear notes coming through with a much smoother lactic acidity. Faint hints of wheat bread. Slightly dry throughout. The finish has an especially pleasant, supple dryness with just a kiss of herbal noble hop flavor coming through alongside a squeeze of lemon. Ghosts of the prickly carbonation linger.

Notes: Highly quaffable with dynamic flavors and a pleasant, complex acidity. Balanced and well put together. Makes me wish more Berliners were made these days.
