Pour is hazy gold. Foamy, bubbly, short white head that Fades fast.

Smells lemon, grassy, tart fruit, wheat and light yeast funk.

Tastes surprisingly quite tart which lasts until the end. Lemon, citrus peel, wheat, yeast Funk, tart apple and a hint of vinegar. Finish is dry with yeast and citrus linger. Medium body and lightly fizzy medium carbonation.

Scored a bottle of this when I went back to Wisconsin for the Tom Petty/Chris Stapleton headlining of Summerfest. Was amazed how ubiquitous FFF became in Wisconsin since my last visit. Pours out of a bomber (unfortunately the only size this comes in) and is a glowing yellow, slight haze and sizeable 3/5" white head. Nice lemony grain like aroma jumps out.

Taste is a light bodied lemony tart grain kind of experience. I totally dug it, drank the bottle camping in Oregon this last August. Wasn't overly sour, or extreme like FFF does with so many beers. This was just plain good berliner and dare I say, even traditional feeling at times. Sure, it is kinda big for a Berliner, but I expected that, and more importantly, it didn't drink that way. In fact, the only real negative for it is the bomber format and therefore the price. Put this in a 6 pack at $10 and I'll but it all day.

The head crests past a finger but dissolves extremely quickly to zero surface coverage, lacing nonexistent. Hazy golden color with a strong storm of bubbles throughout, curious given the lack of surface foam. Crisp nose of tart lemon zest, cut grass and saline, wheat and mixed grains, periodic notes of bubblegum, becomes more floral as it warms and you’re able to tease out more apricot, green apple to pineapple scents. Medium-bodied, balances volume and weight with freshness and bite to positive results. Sweet yeast to baking dough, bubblegum and a hint of banana, peppery spice and then an herbaceous finish. All that visible carbonation barely produces a tickle in the mouth. Lemon and white grapefruit citrus ensures a pleasing sourness throughout. Finishes clean enough, has the tact to know when to end. In the end it’s pretty normal.

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.

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.
