Tap (Tuulensuu, Tampere)
Off. Rotten to phil, soap to anna. Weird in the mouth, a sharp saly bite. Aroma heads towards kimchi. In fact, so does the taste. No surprise here, kimchi ferments due to lactobacillus. The rotten cabbage offness is weird, but it does get much wheatier over time. In fact, the finish has very nice wheaty grains. Not my style, but interesting. Anyone who doesn’t write "rotten cabbage" in their review should be ignored, until they become kimchi experts like me and anna. I’m reminded of the "horribly infected ... unless it’s a lambic, in which case it’s awesome!" quote from /Shit Beer Geeks Say/ - this is a perfect example of such a situation. I’ll be the elephant again - rotten cabbage is an undesirable infection, no matter how deliberate the inocculation was, this isn’t awesome.

Draught @ Tuulensuu, Tampere. Hazy orangeish yellow beer with a white head. Herbal aroma has citrus fruits. Sweetish flavor has citrus and herbs as well. Very refreshing and quite interesting. My first beer in the Grodziskie/Gose/Lichtenhainer category.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
As any real German knows these type of beers are intended to be stirred up. Hence the nice cloudy golden color. Nose is farmhouse wheat with a light dusty coriander spice and a touch of lemon tart. A touch sweet. Too Hefe for me. Too soft. Everything about it is muted. Like a second run and a bit boring.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
some fruity esters in the nose, along with a sour note and some coriander spice notes, tangy aroma. poured out a very hazy medium straw color, with an initial big white head that fell pretty quickly. light and sour on the palate. there a touch of mineral/salt in the mid taste and finish. pleasantly sour, refreshingly tart. some spice bitterness in the finish/aftertaste. clean aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright, hazy golden pour, tiny head. Nose shows tart wheat, some herbal and coriander notes, and lemony sweetness. Taste was surprisingly simple and much more like a witbier that I expected from the nose. Disappointment, though I do love the style. Then again, at 4.6% if this were cheap and easily available I’d probably drink a ton during the summer.
