Bomber numbered 364/500 into a wine glass appears clear golden yellow with a white cap.

Aroma is lemony lactic with some cereal grains and some yogurt to stale grain funk.

Tastes tart and lemony like yogurt and spoiled grain/mash with almost a vinous sweetness.

Light in body with modest carbonation. Its aight.

After being forced to try this beer before I got a growler, I got really nervous. It tasted of grain and didn't seem too good. I'm glad I went for the growler anyways.

This seems to me very much like a beginner Berliner Weisse. The brewer described it as an imperial berliner weisse, whatever that means. I'm calling it a Berliner Weisse with training wheels. Nice mild tartness, and I do mean very mild. Seems like sweet lemons almost. Like I said, this is a beginner's version of the style. Very easy to drink. I wonder what the bottled version will be like. I may go out of my way to pick some up.

1/6/15 Opened the bottle I have been resting on. Age does nothing good for this beer. Flaws seem to be more pronounced. Sour is bumping. Doesn't work. Will not go for this beer again.

Poured a cloudy, light golden body with minimal head and lace. Sour, tart aroma, comprised mostly of some funk and sour, citric fruit notes - can't really get a hold on aroma other than "sour". Beer is light, and yes, sour, but really smooth and never puckering so you always want another sip. There is basically a citric sharpness, think not hops but lemon/orange, with touches of spice and a very minor but pleasant sweetness on the end which gives balance. I guess for this style the sweet edge might turn off some but it was pleasant to me and this is a very enjoyable sour style beer to relax with.

Pour is a hazed pale golden yellow with a small amount of white head. Nose is heavily doughy with a moderate lemon character with notes of hop bitterness and some acidity. Taste is sweeter, lots of lemon, a good bit of doughy malt, light acidity, crisp cracker, sweet sugars, butyric acid. Assertive carb, light body, a bit grainy.

Super haze. Trudge yellow color with a murky middle. Poor head formation.

Tart wheaty nose with lemony spank, yeast protein, light hay, and a squeal of fusel. True Berliner nose, just shy of outstanding.

Lemony sour, green apple, and faint bubblegum, but very dry. Coated with musty spring wheat malt and brined with yeast nuttiness. Awesome acidity level. Good stuff.

Super refreshing. Lightly puckery with a smooth body. A little rustle from residual carb that doesn't disintegrate.

A damn good Berliner, if not just a tad too heavy.
