Draft at the source. This one is pretty much on style, similar to the altbier I’d have in Germany. Body is a bit light.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
On draft at a random hotel beach bar at VA Beach. Advertised incorrectly as a pils. Sigh… Poured a light clear amber, OK head. Aroma was lightly malty with some grassy hops. Flavor matched. Distinctly off sour note on the finish. Not sure if this was because the keg had been around a long time on bad tap lines, or if something was going wacky with the beer itself, but the ultimate experience was disappointing. Too bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewery. Pours a Hazy deeper orange. Pillowy white foam. Good lace. Nose is lacto, big Berliner Weisse nose. Probably infected after they brewed their actual Berliner Weisse. Cherry Berliner seems to be the nose. Taste is drained, minerally, small butter, soap, paper. Decent though infected.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewery:
The keg was fresh hence its appearance. Poured as cloudy dark amber with lighter cap.
Aroma was milder but proper with gentle Noble hop feel. Slight tint of citrus. Felt clean.
Taste: same as in aroma. Clean offering. Poured a bit cold so I took some time to warm it up. Still felt tad milder than other Alts yet it was within style vibe. Very gentle malty notes with mild hop bittering effect. Drinkable.
