16 oz can. Dull hazy grapefruit color, thin head fades fast, no lace. Tart sour aroma. Taste very lemony, nice tartness. Mouthfeel is on the thin side. Overall this was ok, hits the summer craving for a Berliner.

Growler to pilsner glass. Head is unremarkable, pours a bit darker than straw, gold-yellow. The aroma is tart more than sour. Strong notes of grapefruit, citrus, vinegar, a different finish than I am accustomed to. 4% rather than 3% ABV. Recommended, especially for craft beer newbies unaccustomed to hoppy beers.

Sampled in a flight at the brewery tasting room. Lemons, honey, chamomile. Very light bodied, refreshing - great as a summer quencher - not very tart or complex.
