On tap at Highland Park Brewery in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with grain, wheat, lemon, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, lemon, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, refreshing, and easy to drink.

Serving type: on tap.

Picked up at my local bottle shop. A very delicious Berliner Weisse. A tad sour, but not too sour. Very fresh, with a light body. Some fruit notes and a fine finish. Very sessionable at 3.2%. Made for summer sipping.

500 mL bottle. Pale yellow with a bit of haze. Smell is oak, wheat, lemon acidity. I think I even get some red wine. Nice. Taste is wheat and lemon. Gets more complex after the initial flavors. Red wine comes out. Oak. Even better than the smell. Light body. Medium carbonation. A very pleasant and flavorful berliner.

375ml bottle into a snifter appears a hazy pale yellow color with a white cap that is quick to fade.

Smells lemony and earthen with slight brett/wood funky and cereal grain to greek yogurt across the nose. As it breathes it has a bit of spoiled grain character but its not distracting in the least.

The taste is lemony tart with faint grain sweetness. A yogurt feel towards the back.

Light in body, crisp and crushable a solid take on the style. I could drink this by the gallon which is what berliners are suppose to be like in my opinion. Id love to drink this again. Well done.

- 2015 vintage
- 4oz. pour off tap into flight glass at Haven (Orange, CA) on 14-Jan-16

Lemon grass and grapefruit zest with some barnyard funk. Overall, quite nice especially on a hot day (kinda sucked that it was cold outside).
