A nice easy drinking Berliner. I've had a number of American interpretations which missed the mark. Served in a nonic pint, the carbonation really gets to shine and lend the crisp mouthfeel you want from this style of beer. Has the color and clarity of an AAL but with genuinely good malt flavor and tart fruit notes. I got lemon in the mid palate. No bitterness, take note for people who can't seem to handle any hops in their beer. This is a poundable beer for hot days.

@ Bukowski's Cambridge,

Pale straw color with a thick white head compared to the rest of the style. Head fades away by 3/4 glass but it had a few moments of foamy glory. Smells musty. Jackie said "dry basement in a good way." Flavor features a good balance of sweet and mild tartness. I like to be blown away with tartness but I can dig the brewers intention for parody. Not as highly carbonated and spritzy as many berliners which I like.

Pours a light gold color with a white head. Good clarity and has visible carbonation rising to the surface. The aroma is bready and has a wheat beer mustiness.

The taste has a nice lemony tartness with a dry cracker finish and cracked wheat. Has a slight hop bitterness but not overly strong in the flavor. Winesque flavors but of course it's a beer.

A well carbonated beer that finishes rather dry.

Overall, this is a true to style berliner Weisse and drier on the palate than many ive had. Refreshingly tart and crisp, you cannot go wrong with this one. Pretty solid.
