UPDATED: JAN 15, 2009 50cl bottle poured into a long, thin glass. Small, fizzy bubbles abound. Kind of subdued, slightly sour aroma with an impression of peaches. More sour peaches in the flavor, very dry and tart. Highly carbonated and dry, perfect mouthfeel for this style. Highly refreshing and very good.
Edit: This has improved after 6+ months. Really a softer a better mouthfeel, and more richness in the flavor.

bottle thanks to Oakes. Hazy pale tan color. Audible fizziness makes it a fun beer to listen to. Sour tang of yogurt in aroma and flavor both. A little on the fizzy side but overall a fun drink.

Pours a hazy golden with a rather large head that recedes quickly. Aroma is lemon and wheat, sour and tart. Taking a taste, yup sour and tart. Interesting, good, but not what I look for in a beer.

MMMMMMM Very pale hazy straw color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of a raw honey sweetness, wheaty wanginess, and a sour yeasty funkiness. The flavor is much the same as the aroma , sour, tart, fruity, wheaty, crisp, and very refreshing. This was a very pleasant surprise, bought on a whim with no expectations. I will definitely buy again!

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2009 Bottle thanks to Ty5592. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a moderate white head that diminished to a ring. Aroma of tart citrus and wheat. Dominant sour flavor with hints of citrus fruit and light wheat flavors on the finish. Pretty simple flavor profile, but it is refreshing. Easy to drink and crisp on the palate. Very nice beer that makes me proud of my German heritage. Thanks Ty, you are the man.

Bottle at Ludwig’s Schnitzelhouse and Restaurant, Charlottesville. Pours a cloudy straw gold color with a very large head. Aroma is a bit weak, but the lactic sourness comes through. The taste is the same. This has a nice wheat/sour taste. The sourness is not overpowering, and balances nicely.

Bottle from Winking Lizard. Served with a cup of raspberry syrup which I declined. Pours a somewhat hazy yellow-gold color with a medium thin bone white head that diminishes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Tart fruit, doughy malt and spices in the nose. Light-bodied and clean with a tart citrus and raspberry character. Mild spices and grainy malt flavors as well. The finish is fruity with a lingering tartness afterward. Overall this is pretty interesting.
