Appearance: hazy, gold straw. Faint, white head with solid carbonation.
Aroma: wheaty and slightly sour
Taste: crisp acidity but not over-powering. Clean wheat flavor. Nicely tart and balanced.
Overall impression: great, effervescent mouthfeel. Medium, clean, acidic finish. A great American example of a rare German classic. Acidic enough to satisfy sour enthusiasts but approachable for the neophyte.
Availability: June-August in the Western United States and some East Coast markets. Smaller production.
Try it with your favorite syrup if you’d like to try it like the Berliners do.
