Germans drink this flavored, so it seems wierd to me that the Americans drink it straight. Biting tartness and carbonation are there as needed, soem grain notes with lots of citrusy aroma and taste too. Just wish they’d serve some syrup with it.....

Had a nice glass tonight at the Boise RAM for the medal party for the Mountain Brewers Beer Fest .. Pours with a short lasting sudsy white head... the brew is polished straw golden... Proper.
The nose is brightly acidic with some background earthy notes.
Flavor mirrors the nose with some lemon zest... very lactic with no vinegar notes... some sorta background grainy notes helps propel the acidity from front to back.
The expected light body with plenty of prickly carbonation.
Wow... I hope they bottle this one... I could drink this again and again.
Pretty tart/sour for the style.. but this comes from the PNW!

Clean and bright with a persistent head. The nose isn’t up to a huge amount except a little green wheat but in the mouth it packs in mad flavour. Floury bread meets gooseberry and lemon. So zingy but smooth.
