AROMA: Mostly tart with some lemonpeel. Clean, floral scent. 10/12
APPEARANCE: Pale banana yellow; hazy body with slow CO2 visible. Large white foam almost completely dissipates. 2/3
Tartness is evident right away on the lips and tongue. Taste has a
clean citrus flavor in the background. Lovely sourness on finish with
clean, dry aftertaste. The elderflower imparts no discernible flavors.
MOUTHFEEL: Light body; always crisp. Sour/tartness never
let up. Refreshing in the summer heat. ABV is higher than it needs to
be. Would be better packaged in cans. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: A solid, tasty, refreshing Berliner Weisse, though th elderflower component is unnoticeable. 8/10
TOTAL SCORE: 38/50
