3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Murky, pale straw color with a white head. Very grainy aroma with a sour note to it. Tons of grains and lemons in the flavor. Somewhat bready and tart. I’ve always said these are my least favorite beers but they seem to be growing on me a bit. Clean dry finish with a lasting sourness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle, from trade with Erzengel. Many thanks! Pours cloudy gold with receding white head. Aroma is tart lemon, giving way to some oxidised cobwebs, leading me to look for the Best Before date, which is nowhere to be found but I assume its past its best. Refreshing, lightly tart Berliner character but the off-putting oxidisation just makes it difficult to finish.

Straw blond with no head. This one has a weird taste. Soapy. Salty. Really thin and watery texture.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ LIBF’16. Shared with the RB Belgian team.
Couleur dorée, persque transparente, birch sap water, col minime blanc.
Arôme au nez fin de céréales, léger fruité citrique.
Palais est finement suret axé sur un fini grains-céréales, citrique bien là sans pour cela en être trop agressif. Râpeux en fin de bouche, léger malt pils. Trompeur vis-à-vis de l’apparence.

On tap a Global Brew. Pours a hazy very pale yellow with a medium white head. Taste is pale wheat malt, some sweetness, but primarily mildly sour. Mild fruitiness comes through a bit. Almost like champagne.

42nd Floor Tasting. Thanks to Paul. Almost clear gold beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry, modest fine carbonation. Dirty dry stale start, a little lemon zing lifts it but then it a dusty and woody finish, dry. Bleh!
