look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours a cloudy gold color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of bacterial funk, slight hops, hint of salt, and fresh citrus. Fits the style of a Berliner Weissbier. Mouth feel is sharp, crisp, tart, and slightly dry. There is also an average carbonation level. Tastes of fresh citrus, slight hop, and a hint of wheat. Overall, weak appearance, good aroma, great feel, and the body while subtle is good and very well blended.

Pours a murky orange color with a fizzy white head that disappears instantly. Smell is apricot and sour with the fruit playing the lead role. Taste is apricot with a good amount of lacto tartness. The feel is medium with a good amount of carbonation, perfect for the style. This is another wonderful beer from Crane Brewing.

750 mL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a big white head that doesn't last but a moment. Smells of apricot, wheat, some yeasty phenols. Tastes of apricot, but it isn't the freshest apricot. Like an apricot concentrate or candy or something. Strong wheat and mineral flavor in the back end. High carbonation, to the point of changing the flavor. Light body. Nice. Could use some actual tartness beyond just the little lemony tang it has.

look: 1.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a hazed gold with one finger of fast falling beige colored head. Some sediment as the bottle drains. No head retention or lacing, very turbid

S: Peach & apricot

T: Follows the nose, a little tartness, lemon up front. Apricot, pear & lemony tartness as this warms. Tartness, lemon sweet tart in the finish along with acidity

MF: Light body & carbonation. Carbonation picks up as this warms

Good take on the style, but the apricot doesn't really bring much more to this style these guys are fixated on

Opaque orange with a thin cap of white foam.

Aroma was noticeably fruit forward with a well defined juicy apricot presence.
Taste was tart and juicy, again plenty of apricot character and a clean lacto tartness. Body was a little heftier than most Berliners, sort of pulpy and smooth with wheat and yeast.

Overall a solid first offering from this brewery's first bottling. Would drink a bunch in the summer.

Pours a hazy, opaque watery orange, reminds me of orange Airborne fizzy tablets. Nice foamy, white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing left behind. Has a bit of a sour warhead and apricot/citrus smell. Taste is a bit sour (in a good way). It also has some nice apricot notes. Mouth feel is good. It feels a bit harsh in the carbonation, but it feels good for the style. NIcely done. Overall, good beer. Maybe a bit of refinement to come, but it's very good. Excited to see where Crane Brewing goes!

Big foamy airy 1 finger head fades at a needmed pace, nice lacing, hazy amber honey yellow orange color.

Nose some candied apricot, some apple aroma too, jammy fruit, maybe a touch of creamy wheat, some weird mineral and sour thing maybe sulfur, ester icky.

Taste brings candied apricot, apple ester thing again, creamy wheat, toasted notes, banana, little mineral maybe sulfur like thing, no Berliner Weiss really, candy notes. Finish sweet sticky weird, mineral thing, little bitterness.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb, little flemmy sticky thing.

Overall sad panda.
