On tap at Canal St. Pub in Reading, PA - 12oz into a tulip.

A - Pale golden and somewhat bright, compared to other, more cloudy berliners I've had before. Looked really nice in the glass.

S - Outstanding. You could smell the tartness, along with some lemon peel and a bit of vinegar.

T - Wow. Quite sour, bordering on wild ale sourness. I was a bit taken by surprise by the first sip, just because this was that much more sour than the majority of other berliners I've tasted, but once I was ready for it, I loved every minute of it.

M - Medium-high carbonation and lip-puckering sourness. Excellent, crisp finish.

O - This is, hands down, the best berliner I've ever had. The previous record holder was Funky Buddha's Passionfruit, and this one beats it handily. I didn't know this one was barrel aged, but after reading the description, I can totally see how the chardonnay barrel helped this one out. Would love to have again. Relative to other beers in the style, I couldn't give this beer anything but a 5.
