Canned on 4/17/2018 and poured from 16 oz. can into pint glass. It pours an almost opaque, golden-tangerine color with a half finger of foamy, bright white head head and a creamy film of lacing. The nose features lemon peel, wheat cracker and brett yeast. The taste opens sweeter than I anticipated with ripe apricot and some orange. It's sour but not strongly so. After the initial sweet and sour notes, there is a decided wheat cracker flavor particularly in the after taste. The feel is light and crisp and with an ABV of 4.2% it's a super easy drinker. Overall, this is a tasty Berliner. I like the fact it's not overly sour and the wheat biscuit is a nice foil to the sweet fruit.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 4/3/2018. Pours fairly hazy golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with decent retention, that reduces to a nothing pretty quickly. Minimal lacing, some sticking bubbles on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy/tart/tangy peaches, blood orange, fruit skin, lemon, lime, pear, red/green apple, melon, white wine, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruit, fruity/acidic yeast, and light-moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/tart/tangy peaches, blood orange, fruit skin, lemon, lime, pear, red/green apple, melon, white wine, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness, fruit tang, and light spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of sour/tart/tangy peaches, blood orange, fruit skin, lemon, lime, pear, red/green apple, melon, white wine, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruit, fruity/acidic yeast, and light-moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with a nice malt/tart/sourness and tangy fruit balance. Mild lingering pucker through the glass, but not overwhelming. Moderate increasing dryness from tart/sourness and tangy fruit. Medium carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, moderately grainy/acidic/tangy/tannic, and fairly crisp balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a delicious fruited Berliner weisse. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruit, fruity/acidic yeast, and light-moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and pretty refreshing to drink with the moderately acidic/tangy/tannic/drying finish, not overly lactic. Balanced juicy fruits and Lacto; with a solid pale/wheat malt backbone against acidity. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected.

A tart, semi-sweet sour, hazy yellow-orange color. Has a unique, delicious aftertaste, similar to Platform’s cherry pie donut gose. Above average carbonation which adds to the tartness. Goes down very easy. I would take the cherry pie donut offering over this one but would drink this second. Recommended
