Pours a clear amber color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong bacterial funk, citrus, slight tea, hint of yeast, slight pale malt, and a hint of salt. Fits the style of a Berliner Weissbier. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is a noticeable tartness. Tastes of strong bacterial funk, citrus, hint of tea, hint of yeast, slight pale malt, and a hint of salt. Overall, good complexity, aroma, body, and blend.

Reddish orange color with good clarity, initial finger of foam, minimal lace.
Berry tea aroma and flavor, sort of ambivalent about it.
Tart Celestial Seasonings in beer form, fairly one dimensional with a moderate lactic kettle sourness. Light bodied and initially effervescent.
Overall ok to try, but they make better beers. Need to dry-hop more of these.

750mL bottle from LambicPentameter (thanks). Bottled 9/8/16. Served in a Wicked Weed snifter.

Pours a hazy, golden amber with almost two fingers of quickly dissipating white head. The initial froth crackles away, leaving a few scattered wisps, a thin belt and a couple tiny dots of lace.

Aromas of soured wheat, earthy funk, vague tea and some faint overripe lemon.

Tastes of kettle soured grain, old wet hay, a slight earthy tea quality and a mere hint of unsweetened peach lemonade. Though initially seeming dull the more I drink the more fruit I perceive. This goes down incredibly easily.

Light body with sparkling carbonation. Soured grains remain prominent in the finish but the impressions of lemon peach tea linger.

Crane makes an impressively complex weiss. My first few sips of Tea Weiss seemed lackluster but by the end of the bottle I was getting some nice flavored tea notes.

Pours the color of a well steeped green tea with a thin, fizzy white head. Not much head retention, but that is to be expected. Aroma is tea, hibiscus, and lemon with some biscuit malts behind. The tea is quite nice and well done without being over powering. Flavor profile opens with an iced tea flavor note, before a slightly sour finish. Not much tongue twisting sour action, just enough to ring the tea out of the tongue, but not beat it up. Mouth feel has a little fizz to it, but is otherwise medium in consistency and smooth. Overall, a very fun little beer. At 4.10%, it drinks incredibly smooth with light hearted notes of tea and a sour twist.

Served in a 12oz Crane snifter. Draft.

Pours an orange bronze, nice clarity and a frothy white head (but it fades to nothing quickly). Aroma is a delicious blend of salinity, savory fruity tea aromatics, with underlying lemon and cucumber. Nice bite of tart on the tongue, crisp and clean with interestingly full flavor. Hard to describe, but this beer is seriously killer.
