This is one of the best beers/Berliner Weiss I have ever had. This was incredible. There was plenty of tart sour in the nose with apricot going throughout the beer. The taste has the perfect balance between the subtle cereal grains, the tart flavors from the microorganisms, and the sweetness from the apricots. You could probably count on one hand the number of berliner weisses that are better than this one (you might not even fill one hand). This is a must have.

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.

Poured from a 25 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Appearance is hazy yellow gold with a clean look overall. The head is initially 3 fingers thick but dissipates fairly quickly. Smell is clean tartness, lemon, wheat, and some funk. Taste follows the nose with the apricot flavors not the focus but playing nicely with Berliner base. There is a candied Apricot flavor mixed in, but it doesn't have overly artificial notes. Mouthfeel is fairly light but very refreshing. There is good carbonation and tartness on the finish. Overall this is a very good but fairly light Berliner with nice clean flavors. This is not a fruit bomb but has nice subtle flavors.

Poured out a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a tiny fizzy head of foam. It smelled of tart, fresh apricots. Nice apricot flavor with a yeasty bite. Nice and tart with a puckering finish.

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.
