A - Hazy pale yellow, like a slighty more colorful lemon juice without the pulp.

S - Banana, clove, wheat; just like a Bavarian hefe, with a slight sharp twinkle in the background.

T - Big banana, clove, and wheat taste, again, very much a Bavarian hefeweizen, with a pronouced mild tartness that instantly makes you think of lemons with white grape skins. Fantastic and refreshing.

M - Very bubbly and effervescent, with a heaviness between that of a standard every-day Berliner and a gold-standard hefeweizen, ie Weihenstephaner.

O - Recommended. Great summer Berliner, not very tart, but very flavorful, especially for 5% abv.

A-What a unique pour. A straw yellow hue with a violent, fizzy head that starts huge and quickly (but not quietly) fizzes down to nearly nothing. The bubbles rise like Alka-Seltzer. Only slightly hazy, but there are some clear sediment chunks floating around.

S-Have never had this style before. The bubbles prickle the nose. Aroma is tart. Apple juice aroma hides behind the tartness. It almost smells like a white wine, or a light champagne. Very excited to try the flavor.

T-The flavor is light and sweet and deliciously tart. The sour fruity flavors and light yeast make this one complex brew. There is some interesting clove flavor in here as well. I very much enjoy this one's flavor.

M-Light but not too light in the body' extremely crisp too. Bubbly and seltzer-esque.

O/D-I like this one a bunch. Very unique. Great for warm weather. Would love more than just one bottle of this. A very solid, well-rounded beer. I have nothing bad to say about this one. Great introduction to the Berliner Weissbier style.
