2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blonde with a collapsable white head. Cardboardy malt aroma (ho-ho!). Sour oxidized malt with grainy notes. But as I progress, I actually am getting more of the sourness and fresh grainy bread, similar to low alcohol beers. This aint too bad and is refreshing. Bought at party source, with the warning it was really sour (and that it is normal for this beer)....

Another beer that I can’t quite place the smell. Smells kinda sweet, but not really. Not hoppy or malty either. The best I can describe it is a mix of nutrasweet and honey. Pale gold color. No head. Ohh that is sour! Man that is really strange. it is light and crisp, but with that sour puckering. This is growing on me. The aftertaste is nice once you get used to it. Wouldn’t be the everyday beer, but I bet it would go awesome with spicy foods especially Thai dishes.

Pale yellow, with a white head. Aromas of spice, bready, and a little sour. Flavor is very sour and fruity. Not really to my liking....

Im not sure how many of this style Ive had, so I may be wingin’ it here. This stuff pours gol with hardly any head. Aroma has a decent floral hoppiness to it. Taste is nothing like that though with flavors of tangy orange and something else I really cant put my finger on, but it ain’t good. Wat over priced at $2.56 for a 33 cl.

Pretty aged sample - the real McCoy ! Good snowwhite head, dispersed in secs; copper-golden, clear beer with big bubbles. First much oxydated malt, than lactic - and a whiff of Islay malt. Again first the oxydated malts, immediately relieved by the typical sourishness - in the taste more citric than lactic. Really lemony. This builds up more and more to become truly thirst-quenching - really, not as in the ads. Phenomenal dry-out effect, dry, dry finish. Very light bodied, of course. Excellent. The ultimate summerheat beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 Bottle. 2.7% Yellow colour, quite sparkly. Bready aroma. Flavour is slightly acidic and quite dry. Aftertaste reveals the low ABV. A bit like artificial sweetener. I can see why they put syrup in this. Refreshing, I might be able to get used to it. 5 3 5 3 12
Bottle, 3.0%. Weak citric aroma. Cloudy pale golden colour. Small fizzy unstable white head. The flavour is nicely citric, tart, and very refreshing. 6 3 6 3 14

Light honey color, slightly hazy, pours with a pils looking white head that quickly dissapates. Aroma is bread and vinegar with slight touches of yeast. This would be excellent on a hot summer day. Light body and a tart finish. Thanks Bert(slob) for giving me the opportunity to sample this style.

From bottle. Pours a light, clear straw color with a quickly disappearing head. Very carbonated. Smelled like vinegar and malt. Tasted distinctly sour, but in a good way. Not bad at all. A GOOD drink, which form what i understand can be mixed with fruit syrups.

Sweet lemon aroma. Yellow with white head that disipated. Good carbination the head before disipating you could hear it fizzling. Sweet tart flavor with dry aftertaste. Good beer bought by my beer assistant.
