12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw gold, tall white fizzy head, leaves rings of lace as it fades. Tart wheat aroma. Very light fruity tart taste. Nice crisp wheaty finish. Crushable, fresh, not too tart, liked it.

12 oz bottle poured into snifter.
A- Pours a clear straw colored gold with a thick head that dissipates and leaves some beautiful lacing.

S- Tart green fruits. Apple, grape. Maybe some lemon?

T- More tart fruits. Almost has a wine like quality. Mild sourness

M- Dry and mildly sour. A really good amount of carbonation.

D- A pretty good Berliner Weiss that really opens up as it warms just a little. Good representation of the style.

You get a yellow, sometimes mild, sometimes a little more glowing appearance with good clarity nonetheless.

Aroma is tart lemon, white grape, green apple and wheat.

Taste is out of the same playbook, but without the apple. Super flavorful, super light beer, perfect for the dog days of summer or any time around the pool. Acidic, tart and dry. Must drink every summer. Berliner Weisse with an American (grape) twist.

Golden hue with a good amount of head. Smell of wheat, tart, grape. Taste is that of tart and grape, wheat and grain in as well. Great Beer

Huge frothy head that stays up. Smell is very reminiscent of sauvignon blanc or some other crisp, white wine. Taste is similar, and the characteristics from the yeast are definitely unique as well, with an almost lager-like quality. Mouthfeel is excellent for such a low ABV beer. Overall, I think this is a lager with white wine grapes in it, but I would drink 100 of these. Excellent.
