On tap at the brewery, into a branded tulip.

Hazy straw yellow with a white head, but almost no retention or lacing. Light tartness in the nose, a bit of wheat, lemon and perhaps even a bit of grass. A bit wheaty on the palate, some grain and subtle lemon notes again. Mouthfeel is a bit watery, but it's somewhat expected for the alcohol content. Perhaps not tart enough for my liking, not sure if lacto was employed here or to what degree. A drinkable Berliner, but from a style I quite enjoy I wasn't blown away by this one.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub.Sour and yet very well malted, this is to have late in the session as it is a little bit of a palate eraser. Very lacey with foamy head, golden yellow bodied. In the style, though not the best represenattive I have had of it. I have had a few that release a lot more complex flavour. Had it again about 1.5 years later and somewhat improved.

On tap at Bellwoods.

Beer is a cloudy golden colour, very light. A nice, big, snow white head on top. Good retention and lacing.

The most immediate smell is of dry cereal, rather musty. A bit funky, but no hint of sourness.

Taste is very dry with a slight sourness. Lemon and cereal are present. Hints of light fruit, but quite mild - really no sweetness to the beer. Crisp wheat flavours present as well.

Moderate to high carbonation, with a medium body. Feels bigger than 3.2%, but certainly no alcohol noticeable. Slightly tart.

Overall, a nice beer which I quite enjoyed, and works well as a break in between some of the bigger beers that Bellwoods offers.
