Nathan et al are crushing these all Lacto beers. Meant to mimic brut and is right on. Very sharp acidity without being too much. Unbelievable that its under 4%.

I had to get through half of this beer to make sure I liked it.
Because BW have that added fruit syrup, it takes several sips for me to know for sure what I got. And Diamonds is very sharply tart for the style, so it took some getting used to. But I did. A nice floral, fruity composition. A good palate cleanser, bubbly. Refreshing as a BW should be. This went well with appetizers, but I would not have it with a meal.

My first from Right Proper, so I went on their website. A husband and wife team putting together very thoughtful beer and food menus... and, I presume, loving it all the way.

@ Shaw

Lightly hazed golden yellow with minimal head. Aroma is funky - nearly smoky in nature - earthy flowers and deep Lacto tartness. Tart, acidic lemon citrus flavors mixing with a champagne slickness. Dry, tart feel. Pretty good, if a little off-balance with the funky acidity.

Pale yellow body. Transparent with an inch of white head. Big time sour aroma. Lacto, funk, grass, lemon juice, citric acid. Delicious and puckering. <4% abv alcohol packs quite a flavorful punch. Terrific.

Poured on tap into a tumbler at Domku.

Bright and cloudy lemon body, real nice yellow hues and darker yellow body. Creamy white topped head, slightly fleeting, manages a good thinight puck as well.

Large peach and watery aroma, with nice tartness. Hints at very light fruit but also powdery grain and dry flour. Very impressive Ester fruit like quality.

Palate manages to stick to the basics. Very light bodies even for a Berliner but flavors still transpire. Mild lemon and peach fruit mid palate flavors. Tangy finish but a little wet with lacking malt density. Fizzy, a bit of soda like wet carbonation that distracts a little, finishes quite clean, but also a bit fleeting.

Unique tasting refreshing berliner, but would like some nicer bakery malt quality and depth.

On tap at Right Proper in Brookland.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with fine, wispy head.

Smell is tart and a bit floral with notes of elderflower and grapefruit.

Taste is softly acidic and tart with notes of grapefruit, elderflowers and white wine. Dry finish.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a nice, luxurious-feeling Berliner.
