Big thanks to Greg for picking this one up for me. It's a long-time favorite of mine, finally getting around to reviewing it.

Pours a hazy bright yellow with a thin white head. Smell is very tart, almost like a wild, but with some more regular light German beer flavor lingering in the background. Taste is very light and tart, very refreshing, almost like a cross between beer and lemonade, but not in the terrible way that combination actually tastes. Mouthfeel is very light-bodied with high carbonation. Overall, this beer is really fantastic, basically a perfect berliner.

Thanks to starrdogg for sharing this beer, I'm digging the Berliners as of late...

The beer pours like you'd expect for a Berliner, very light straw yellow and has a bubbly fluff head that dies to a very white ring. Very clean cleanish look.

The smell is nice, has a almost wild like smell though it is tempered by a definite German light malt bill as well. Just smells basically how a very tart Berliner should smell, very yeasty and very nice. lots of sour mash brett to this guy.

The taste is very complex, and quite tart. It has many layers of flavor for only being 3%, some nice fruity tart berry like notes and also a bit of wood, and then a clean yeasty taste as well. Has a very clean malt character too that is a bit sweet to compliment the sour very nicely. Lots of lemon, in a good way.

Very nice feel for a Berliner, effervescent and well carbonated. Very easy to drink, I could drink down lots of this and not think twice.

A great beer, very nice overall. If you like tart easy drinking beers, this one is a winner.

Reviewed from notes: Huge thanks goes out to Jsanford for sending me a growler and a bottle of this to drink side by side.

appearance: hazy golden yellow with a 1 finger head

smell: tart, sour, wheat, lactic,

taste: sour, tart, wheat malts,

mouthfeel: mild carbonation, medium body,

overall: one of my favorite berliners. had such a nice balance between tartness and malt backbone. could drink this all day long. Wish it was easier to get. But I like the addition of brett into this beer, rather then just using lactobacillus. Nice touch.

Cheers,
The CPJ

On tap at kraftwork. Nice another berliner wiss. I'm always looking for this style.

A- comes to me with a nice finger or so of brilliant white frothy head that settles after the first sip to leave a few wisps on top a sudsy ring. Hazy pale yellow in color with some sweet bubbles holding on the side of the glass.

S- crisp bright lemon zest and juice with a lightly sweet yet clean wheat hit. Grassy and fresh like a lawn after the spring rain.

T- light tart open with a sour and bite but never over baring. Crisp and fresh lemon juice with a very simple yet well balance wheat sweetness.

M- light body and carb with a super kickass pucker that goes far enough to get the juices flowing but not too far that you need to pull the drawls from yo ass.

O- this brew is tits. One of my favorites of the style to date. Ill be having a few of these. Philly is the best beer town.
