Huge thanks to yourefragile for sharing this growler. Served in a cervoise. The nose is fairly tart with a bit of wheat in the background, but mostly sourness and light stone fruits. Flavor is similar. It’s quite tart, and unfortunately doesn’t have much dry wheat character like a great Berliner. Instead, it’s more of an American Wild, though a good one at that.

Poured from a tap. Part of a sour flight at The Birch. Cloudy lemonade appearance. Sour milk aroma (not in a good way). VERY sour, and not being a fan of the style, I don’t yet appreciate the benefits.

Growler fill from G&G. Pours a hazy light yellow color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is tart, citrus, light funk. Huge sour in the flavor that lingers into the finish. Nice funk. Very tasty.

dinkle50 (1163) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Cloudy pour with a thin head that dies quick. Aroma is tart. Taste is a blast of tartness upfront with a little berry sweetness. Dry finish. Seems so sour at first, but melts away on the finish. Medium bodied.

Draught at the Rosamunde, San Francisco, CA.
Hazy pale yellow colour, no head. Sourness, berries, white currant and tartness in the aroma. The flavour is sourness, tartness, berries, vinegar and currants. Strong and tasty. Very expensive though.

Barreras (1318) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 16, 2015
Pours an electric yellow, pineapple juice color. Aroma is of pineapple juice, and citrus aromas. Taste is tart, sour, flavorful juice that tickels the tongue. A lasting aftertaste of champagne bubbles, and citrus. A light flavorful beer that was a joy to drink because of the low alcohol content and complex flavor for the style.

Draught. Pours a very slightly hazy dark golden color with almost no head on it whatsoever. Nose is decidedly tart with a bit of funk to it and some light sour fruit to it. Taste is quite sour as well, though refreshing and easy to drink.
