The aroma of this Berliner weisse presents moderate wheaty and grainy malt with a light citrusy fruit and a hint of sweet fruit reminiscent of prickly pear fruit.  Upon the first sip, the prominent sourness is readily evident!  Moderately puckering, the flavors of wheat and a lime citrus compliment the clean lactic sourness.  The finish is lightly bitter allowing the clean sourness to cleanse the palate to a refreshing, crisp, sour finish.  The delicate esters and the clean lactic sourness provide for a wonderful, refreshing sour beverage.  No woodruff or raspberry syrup required!
