750 mL bottle. Pours orange and a little hazy. Smells of oranges and vanilla. Mostly vanilla. Tastes much more orangey. Tart orange. Pretty sour. Vanilla lends the illusion of creaminess. Lingering sourness. Medium light. It's pretty good.

Appearance: Arrives the color of Minute Maid orange juice and is capped by an inch of foam that leaves splashy lacing

Smell: Orange tones dominate with some tart wheat character underneath

Taste: Lactic orange with a tangy wheat aspect, up front; the tartness builds, through the middle and there is a hint of vanilla in the finish which grows, somewhat, as the liquid warms

Mouthfeel: Light body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A fun beer but I am a bit surprised by the hype around it

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, blue session. Aroma is sweet and fruity reminding of bubblegum. Taste is tart, tropical and perfumey. Body is light, dry and refreshing.

Quick thought on this one - this is simultaneously one of the strangest beers and yet, its exactly what they were going for. Lots of orange flavor - sweet and juicy juice like. Then you get the vanilla that gives off an vanilla ice cream flavor. And then your brain registers that this super sour berliner tastes like a creamsicle. Not my cup of tea, nor is it really a berliner weisse, but it does accomplish what it set out to do - taste like a sour creamsicle.
