Slightly hazy straw color with just some bubbles of white foam. Aroma has nice hoppy notes, mostly citrus fruits. You can tell from the aroma it's a tart beer. Taste starts somehow sweet right when the beer hits your tongue but gets quickly tart and lemony. The hops are also present, really fresh and grassy. Body is light with medium carbonation. Really fresh, hoppy, easy drinking berliner weisse.

A: Poured into a tulip to a light straw yellow topped by a finger and a half of dense white head that fades quickly to a collar around the edge of hte glass
S: Smells of juicy citrusy and slightly tropical hops with some hints of sourness. Very nice nose on this beer
T: Taste is nice lemony tartness up front with some slight grassy notes before some citrus and tropical hop notes take over. Good tartness throughout the drink as well. Swallow is more tartness with some creamy wheat and some lingering tropical citrus notes. There are some mineraly notes that seem to come in at times for this beer which are very out of place for the style.
M: This beer is fairly light in body and leans a little toward watery. The carbonation is soft but adequate for the style and the beer has a slightly drying finish. The hops and tartness do a little battle and the tartness just barely eeks it out.l
O: Overall this is a nice beer with some interesting flavors and some great complexity. Plenty of hop notes to add onto the base beer which makes this one a joy to drink. It tastes good and would rate higher but those mineral notes don't fit in.

Pale blonde color with a frothy 1 finger head.

Aroma : Dill weaves in and out of vinegar, oak, honey, and sweet tarts.

Flavor is pleasantly sour, with hints of vinegar and apples, lemon, yogurt, some light chalk, calcium, sweetgrass, limestone.

Feel is light, a bit under carbonated but very easy to drink.

Overall, I'd have this again. A nice sour ale for sure.

A - cloudy, unfiltered yellow with no head. Almost looks like cloudy lemonade

S - lots of presumably cascade hops, some lacto in there and some sweet smelling citrus from the hops.

T - Starts very citrusy, sweet tropical fruit and ends with an almost sweet black current and tartness

M - quite carbonated but goes down very smooth and finishes crisp and sweet

I'm a bit skeptical when it comes to dry-hopped sours/sour IPAs, and though I don't think this nails it it's still quite enjoyable. Very tart, lacto sour, and actually some noticeable hoppage there. Lots of lemon yogurt, grapefruit juice, grassy+earthy tones. Goes a bit overboard with the puckering sourness/acidity but I do like the bite it brings. Very light, well-carbonated and refreshing. Would make a nice session sour if not for the acidity.
