On tap at Session 2012, into a tulip.

Unfiltered dirty yellow, with a generous white head. Good retention and lace. Nose of wheat, good lactic notes, lemon zest. Everything in nice proportion for what I dig in the style. Taste has wheat, some white bread, mild lemon and faint citrus zest. Not as tart as I anticipated. Gentle flavour and fairly refreshing. Light body, medium low carbonation. A nice Berliner that could've done better with a bit more tartness.

Enjoyed on tap at Volo Funk Night II. Deep yellow, no head. Carbonation right there. Very drinkable, and subtle in the fruit as not getting lychee sweetness, and while guava is not noticeable there is a slightly acidic fruitiness there. Nicely done for the style. Refreshing and unique. Aroma reminds of Brett.Smooth mouthfeel.

On tap at Sessions 99 festival.

Cloudy banana in colour, good sized white head. Good lacing.

Smell contains dry cereal, slightly tart. Lemon scents.

Taste is quite refreshing. Lemon, slight tartness, cereal. Dry. Nice.

Light bodied, low carbonation.

Overall, enjoyable and certainly nice on a hot day. Enjoyed the glass.

Hazy pale yellow colour, just over a finger of white head with a decent amount of lace. Malty with bread like qualities, yeasty points, a bit of lemony citrus as well, faint acidity in the nose. The taste is clean with a lightly sweet note, malts and a bit of grainy flavours, some yeasty flavours, fairly mild tartness as well. Carbonation is a little light, with a light-med body, decent feel. Pretty solid but not my favorite of the two berliner's that day, still nice though.
