A classic Berlinerweisse— it's the ghosts of barley malt. That fragrance is quite intriguing with a pale malty hint plus the sharpness of peeling tangerines. Spritzy carbonation.

Lemon juice flavor, but diluted and a little mellowed. Not much fruity flavor is left— it's all about the sourness. Sippable but not much for a drink. On tap at Church Key in San Francisco. [review notes from Jan. 23, 2012 tasting].

Had this on 2015-06-28 at the brewery on tap.

Tons of flavor. Wheat, salt, citrus. Big feel for the style. Refreshing. Impressive.
