3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
.5 l bottle. Got this in 2007 and cellared it. Why? I don’t think I quite worked that a beer that "keeps" isn’t the same as one that ages well. So let’s do this. Tart fruit under the cap. Pours a lot of white foam over a clear golden beer. I can’t remember having many sour beers this clear and light, except for other Berliners. Sour cherry in nose, but quite light. Foam is gone pretty quickly. Leaves behind a beer that I wouldn’t quite call "sour" like so many Flemish ales. A bit puckery, yes, but malty as any German lager. Sourness builds as I go further into the beer, like escalating heat when I eat a chile pepper. Like they say, a zesty and refreshing beer style, and this is a nice example. Surprised to find some yeast slurry at the bottom. Has anyone tried to recultivate it?

From a 1 Pint 9 FL.OZ Bottle. Poured a crisp golden yellow with nice white head that dissipates quickly. I smell cherries, malt, lemon and wheat. I taste all the same, almost like sour. Excellent!

Fresh bottle. Pours cloudy/opaque faint yellow with tall head, quickly fades. Lemon and grain, cheese rind in the nose. Those traits also found in the flavor along with some italian bread. Big, welcome wheat punch here too.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle pours hazy semi-clear pale yellow with small head that fades immediately. Nose is full of earthy grain, cereal, corn flake, hay, wheat, soft lacto lemon citrus. Taste is bright with crisp cutting balanced lacto acidity, some juicy lemon and fruit notes up front and a mix of rustic whole grains, cheerio, and cereal on the tail end. Fantastic!

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.
