Alengrin (2463) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Traditional Berlin ’Schankbier’ and the archetype of its style, light wheat beer with lactic acid infusion; yellowish white, loose and quickly dissolving head, colour a ’dirty’ straw yellow, equally misty. Wheaty aroma with soft pale malts, flowery hops, apple, hay and lemon juice. Quite pungent and surprisingly sharp taste (clearly lactic acid, which tastes sour but has no smell), lemony on a soft wheat basis, mineral-like thanks to strong carbonation, fruity accents, sourishness stays till the finish where apart from the citric acidity, a more mellow lactic acidity also appears, further adding to a dry, refreshing and thirst-quenching end. Body fuller than expected because of the strong carbonation - in spite of this basically being a low-alcohol beer. Very interesting tasting experience, very interesting style.

Bottle. Pale hay colour. Wheaty, bland, nose. Some rubbery notes. Light body, slight tart. Bland wheaty flavours. Bit dissapointing on its own. Nice with a dash of syrup.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2014
Sour and tart wheat beer that is not really worth drinking as it is. on the back label recommends brewery also to pouring example. raspberry syrup in. No, I have not learned to drink this sour spray yet, nor added Berliner kindl sauerkirsche. I learn it enough one day. :-) caustic tongue. tastes like stomach acid provides acid reflux, but ok fresh

samires (12) - POLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Very light yellow to straw colour, no head at all. Aroma non appealing, acidic and thats all. In taste purely sour. Could be drinkable and very refreshing if added some kind of fruit flavouring, than its perfect for summer (considering low ABV)

0.33L bottle. Pours clear golden with a frothy white head. Interesting, and different aromas. Apple, wood, dust. True to style, the beer is immediately sour. In fact, that’s about the only flavor there. A little bit of apple sweetness comes in at the end, but this may just be a reaction to the sourness. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, a fairly uni-dimensional beer: it’s just sour. Still, I could see how this could be refreshing in the summer if mixed with some fruit liquour.

PawelD (241) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. Aromat szmaty i skarpety. Kolor bardzo jasny słomkowy, piany zero, wysycenie duże. W smaku mocno kwaśne i tyle na ten temat. Ciekawostka.

goozen (3066) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy golden colored brew with refreshing sour taste and drink this one pure if you an experienced Geuze drinker, its easier than an Giradin or Cantillon.

Also ich hab nix gutes über dieses Bier gehört, aber trotzdem probier ich es, es ist sauer doch irgendwie gefällt mir das, es ist ohne zweifel gewöhnungsbedürftig aber mir gefällt dieses säuerliche, vor allem da es auch ein wenig fruchtig schmeckt, gut gekühlt ist es ein top Dutstlöscher, also ganz gutes Bier!
