The beer pours pale, straw colored with a nice frothy head that exits fairly quick. The aroma suggests citrus, spice, light fruit and a touch of funky barnyard mustiness in the background. It is fruity, very tart, dry and refreshing, with a hint of sourness. The quintessential summer afternoon beer. It’s not potent enough to do too much damage. The tartness encourages you to drink slow and the tartness and fruitiness especially in the aftertaste help it last.

Massive five-finger head rushes out of the bottle. White soapy foam lingers on top of the brew for some time. Brew is cloudy yellow with tons of whites.

WOW. A true Berliner Weiss (BW)... Lemon, orange, spices, wheat, lots of stone fruits too.

Perfect (light) funky tartness, awesome carbonation, zero bitterness. Yum. Lots of apple, apricots, lemon, orange, pepper.

IMO, this is how a BW should appear, smell, and taste. Highly recommended, this is a must try for likers of the style
