22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/5/2017. Pours lightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lightly tart lemon, lime, peach, apricot, pear, pineapple, red/green apple, mango, melon, papaya, citrus zest, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with light notes of hay, grass, leather, wood, musty/lacto funk, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/acidic/light funky yeast and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lightly tart lemon, lime, peach, apricot, pear, pineapple, red/green apple, mango, melon, papaya, citrus zest, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with light notes of hay, grass, leather, wood, musty/lacto funk, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate lactic tartness and light yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, peach, apricot, pear, pineapple, red/green apple, mango, melon, papaya, citrus zest, wheat, cracker, white bread, hay, grass, light funk/pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic/light funky yeast and moderate pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Moderate increasing dryness from tartness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly acidic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6.5%. Overall this is an awesome Berliner weisse! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic/light funky yeast and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Not overly lactic, with nice fruity yeast complexity and balanced malts. A bit unique for this one; definitely a bit of Brett going on, but it's not overpowering. A really enjoyable offering and spot on style example; even with the higher ABV.

This bottle is about a year old - purchased at brewery in December 2016 - about 11 months after purchase. Pretty golden body with quickly disappated head. Nose has lots of straight tartness - a strong signal that this will be a pucker bomb. True to form - it is. Lots of nice complexity with sweeter citrus and sour candy notes. Great brew.

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.
