12 ounce can, there's a stamp on the bottom but the numbers/letters are printed too close together so I have no idea what it says on there. Thanks to Brutaltruth for this! Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy gold color with about an inch or so off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like wheat/grainy malt, white grapes, and some lemon peel. It tastes like wheat grainy malt, salt, lemon peel, and earthiness. I do think the wheat/graininess is the strongest flavor. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick and easy to drink with a good amount of carbonation. I thought it was a good Berliner Weisse style ale, but then I do like the wheaty/grainy versions. Definitely worth trying for sure!

I know this is a year round beer, but I think it is really nice for late spring or early summer. Light and bright, with lemon, honey, floral, and wheat accents on the smell. Taste is a little deeper, but still maintains light and refreshing feel

From the can via the little lady's daughter and beau---Thanks Jamie and Jeanette!
This above average berliner pours a lemon lemon straw color with a beautiful
head of thick white meringue topping that settles in the snifter to a thick long lasting
layer with excellent lacing. Nose of yeasty tart funk, soft sweet wheat notes, lemon
zest, and touches of honey. Flavors exceed the nose with excellent presentation of
a tart lemon zest with moderate acidity and honey touched wheat notes with yeasty
tart funk. Elements of sea salt hit the rear of the taste and dries this rather nice brew
out.

Very nice mouth feel; light body, medium carbonation that is lively, and a
tart lightly acidic finish. Overall a SOLID brew in a style that is not my normal cup of
ale or lager....but it is surprisingly drinkable and sessionable. Perfect for BBQ which I
am doing right now.

Cheers
