Pours a golden orange color with a small white head on top that goes away quickly. Has a tart citrus smell along with malt. Has a very sour taste with lots of citrus

Traditional optics - clean straw color, good carbonation, wisp of a head. Aroma is simple wheat malt with some lacto-ish yeast tang. Pretty straightforward for the style, malt is light & crisp, tartness is good, what you expect. Ends with a sour peach note. For a moment it flirts with being a tad vinegary but ultimately stays on course. Prefer more carbonation & tingling on the tongue, felt a little heavy for the style. Solid Berliner but definitely better options out there.

Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a minimal amount of white head. Smells of wheat, salt air, and yeast. They are not kidding about it being tart. Some apricot flavors to it, apple cider vinegar too. Not terribly much depth to it, pretty one noted and finishes off the palate cleanly and quickly. Medium body. Shows promise but pretty one noted.

Pours hazy golden-orange in color. White head. Aroma of tart fruits and funky yeast. It's flavor is tart up front with an apricots and apple juice underneath. A tad sweet and definitely tart. Some wheat and barnyard notes. I really wasn't a fan of this one, but I can understand how other people might be.

Pours out with effervescent carbonation that collapses to nothingness. Funk, hay, dried morning breath. This is one salty beer! Sour and tart, slightly sweeter than sea water. There are some hops in the background to keep this straight. Refreshing mothfeel. Only thing that holds this back is that it lacks some depth.
