Poured into a tulip. Moderately hazy and golden color with a small and fizzy white head. Aromas of tart lemon, floral notes, and wheat. No off-flavors or smells. Fruity esters on the back end. Not as sour as other Berliners that I've had. Really clean lemon, floral, and wheat flavors. Medium-bodied and dry on the finish. Really nice.

Pours an oddly colored hazy reddish orange. Smell is pretty funky. Very tart in taste. Fun to try had an open mind just can't handle this sourish stuff.

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.
