3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours a hazy straw color with a two finger thick white head. Aroma is light grain and yeast (banana). Flavor is tart lemon. Not too tart though. No lingering sourness on the palate. Light to medium body. This beer was a pleasant suprise. I was expecting something like a Flemish Sour. Instead, got a real nice drinkable beer.

One of my contributions via trade long time ago from someone, thankee kindly. My 2nd rating, somewhere around beer 5 of 2nd Belgian Beer Club shindig. Pours clear yellow with a bright white head. The nose was wheaty and tart. The taste is sweet, tart, sticky, and sour. Very tasty overall the sourness is nice.

Bottle @ Rudolf’s ’Sourfest’. Crisp yellow body with a small white head. Yeasty corn on the cob aroma. Grainy, very light sourness in the flavour. Average palate. Pretty dull - I never thought I would catch myself wanting something to be MORE sour! Perhaps my tongue had been deadened by the stiffer fare surrounding it.

bottle from ucusty...pours hazy golden yellow with a fluffy short lived head. aromas of lemon, wheat and wet canvas. flavor is the same with some yeast present. there’s a lactic phlegmy coating in the back of the throat when swallowed. light bodied and refreshing. it’s very dry but the sourness isn’t overdone.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 3rd LCRBM. This will get a re-rate soon, because of a trade with Der Doppelbock, but first impressions are these: yoghurt and, surprisingly, some hops in the aroma. Very modestly sour flavor with yoghurt, fresh cheese and traubenzucker. Citrus. Thin, but complex and delicious.
Re-rate: First rating was fairly accurate. Lychee in the somewhat citric aroma. A slight lemony sourness with tropical fruit added. pineapple, lychee, traubenzucker. Good complexity is this delicious and characterful beer, that is way less sour as the Berliner Weisse from Schultheiss or Kindl.

The 16.9 ounce bottle poured a cloudy light golden yellow colored beverage with a modest sized white fizzy head that was completely gone in 2 minutes and left no lacing on the glass. The aroma was slightly sweet with notes of lemon and grasses. The body was medium-light with lively carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor starts out sour and stays that way throughout the medium length finish.

Pours beautifully with an ultra-smooth head of foam, like watching a waterfall of cascading white sand. Wheaty and quite sour, but not in a funky sort of way, more sour mash and wheat sour. A nice change-up from the usual suspects. Would try again.
