On tap at Wurstkuche in Los Angeles. Pours with a thick head and hazy straw color. Smell is of lactic funk, cherries and sweet malt. Taste is of sour cherries, sweet malt with a dry, tannic finish. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Overall, a very sessionable and refreshing Weissbeer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. bottle poured to a weissebier bowl at Lunar Brewing Co., displaying a clear & bright golden color, with a presentable layer of white foam that quickly diminished to a ring & film, and left some fleeting spots of lacing on the glass. The nose was quite tart, fruity, lemon & orange, with a touch of Brett. Light bodied with spritzy effervescence, the taste retained a bit of yeastiness, and was very lacto-astringent, dry, and palate cleansing, but not out of control. Very flavorful with or without syrup.

Very good and very lemony. Not sure what else to say to fill 75 characters. An easy drinker, that's for sure.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No head. Feared it would be flat. Pleasantly surprised. Crisp. I like sour. Almost cider like.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow with spongy white head, doughy aroma, sour citrusy taste with abrupt but sour finish. Very much unexpected after the first impression on aroma!

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A- Lemons, tart, funky, barnyard, yeasty, sour.
A- Yellow color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Sour, tart, lemons, funk, sweet.
P- Light body, sour texture, medium carbonation, funky finish.
O- I’ve concluded that this style is not my favorite style by any means. The 1809 seemed to be one of the best I have had however. The lactic tartness is very strong and the barnyard aromas are not quite a turn on for me.
