Poured into a mason jar. Pale straw color with a massive head that left two inches of lacing on the glass. Aroma is tartness, apple, and citrus. Taste is citrus and moderate sourness with a tart apple, dry finish. The taste is smooth and balanced. Enough sour to be distinguished but not so much it overwhelms everything. Light bodied with medium carbonation and no aftertastes. Very drinkable and refreshing.
It's a good thing this is seasonal. It's good but expensive and is so quaffable it's a good summer and fall beer.

Lemon yellow brew. Extremely rustic aroma, milky, slightly tart.

Tart but easy drinking on the palate. Tons of wheat on the finish. Very lively and extremely drinkable.

Opened with a slight gush, then you get a hazed straw colored brew with a near non exsistant head.

S: Sourness, grassiness, all kind of fade

T: Nice tartness, a little lemon, a little cherry, & some grassiness up front.. Tarrtness, lemongrass, almost a little cherry lime-aide action going on. Finishes tart & so quenching

MF: Light bodied, delicate carbonation, you can just feel the puckeryness

Super drinkability, Prairie nailed this one would drink this all Summer if I was made of money

Pours from the bottle a clear gold. I was forewarned of the carbonation, so a careful pour helped manage the bubbly white head. Tart breadiness, apple and citrus carry the nose. Those are all present in the taste, though green apple is more predominate. Just tart enough to cause one to pucker. The mouth is light, and crisp with carbonation. This is made so well. It's not a style I'm apt to visit often, but this tempts me to reconsider.

Standard Berliner appearance, hazy golden with a thin cap of white bubbles (once the gush from the bottle settled down). Putrid aroma, sour grains, sour milk, cheap wine. Lacto-lemony taste, sourdough, about 4/10 on the tartness scale, which makes for decent drinkability. Somewhat stale and watery, but not bad overall.
