Hottenroth Berliner Weisse

750 mL capped bottle from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Pour is a close to colorless/pale lemon until the last pour which yielded some sediment that thickened the appearance and the body considerably.
A lot of things in-line with the style here from the spritzy and lively carbonation, through to the apple-like tartness and the easy of drinking. Delighted to able able to drink a serious, American craft beer in a style that demands an ABV below 5%. That in itself was a great change of pace.
Some green apple skins and an obiovus light acidity make the beer complete. Not quite as tart as I was expecting, and for that alone this beer was extremely drinkable. It is a small departure in terms of the style, and in some respects I think it is best left to the original brewers in the original place to get the full-effect of a beer like this. There is definitely something lost by not being at the source. Having said that, this still drank nicely and I think, whilst although slightly off-base in terms of FULL authenticity (how could it possibly be otherwise?), it did a pretty decent job.
ABV a BONUS! With so little, high quality LOW ABV craft beer produced in America, I have to take what I can get.
