Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 2, 2004
The beer after disemboguing from the 11.1 ounce light brown bottle into my Berlin Kindl Weisse glass a somewhat luteolous color, the head is modest in size and evaporates quickly leaving a velum like film to cover the glass. Nose is citrus crisp, sweet and sour, light hints of yeast, start is quite sour as I tried it with out the syrup, light malt profile, the top skimpy in its feel. Finish is astringent, dry as a desert bleached bone, the hops quite mild, all in all not a bad, maybe I need to add a touch of Raspberry syrup as I was advised.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Sampled with raspberry (Himbeer) syrup added. Faint aroma, mostly just wheat, as it warms a little wet hay aroma shows up. Sweet and sour flavor, don’t actually get much from the beer, just the raspberry flavor of the syrup. Light body, quite refreshing. Decent summer beer.

Pours a lite straw colorr with a fizzy head that dissappears immediately. Smell of wheat and yeast. REALLY SOUR with a very lite spritz of yeast. NOTHING ELSE GOING ON! This is just bad.

Clear yellow pour with no head. Smells very yeasty. Taste is very sour with slight yeast flavor. Fizzy on the tongue. Slightly dry aftertaste.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Bottle with no syrup: Clear yellow hue with fizzy head and little head. The aroma has notes of lemon and lime zest, grassy and floral hops, wheat and grain. The taste starts with sour fruit and acidic tones. I found this still not to be a sour has some would say, like a lambic sort of. Got a grainy perhaps wheaty finish with just a touch of malt. The feel is lively, fizzy, and refreshing like water. There is a reason they add woodruff syrup to this, cut down the sourness. I have drank it like that before and this beer needs to have it added.

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Aroma is of burnt styrofoam, it was odd but mild. Flavor is of sour grape, sour apple, and bitter lemon zest. It is light and refreshing, if it was slightly less sour it would be very drinkable.

Ever so slighlty hazy yellow body topped by a large fomay white head that collapses very quickly. The aroma is very distinct, sour wheat, no real hop aroma or sweetness as in a typical weiss (this is my 1st time trying this style). Flavor is well uhh different, sour wheat malt very light body that produces a very dry almost puckering finish. Overall complexity is very low but still this is a unique experience with a rare style.

Pailhead (4808) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2004 Bottle: The aroma is awful. Smells a little like cardboard. A little hop aroma. Pours a pale yellow with a large bubbled head that is gone in no time. No lacing. Smell is absolutely no indication of what to expect in the taste at all. Taste is all lemon. Very, very sour. I almost feel like I drinking watered down (but not very much), carbonated lemon juice. This hardly tastes like a beer. Maybe the best way to describe this beer would be to say that I imagine if I took a glass of tonic water and "marinated" a large number of yellow tear jerker gumballs over night, and then drained the liquid and drank it, it would probably taste like this beer.

(Bottle) Pours a golden color with a medium-sized white head. Very lemony, tart flavor. Reminded me of eating sweetarts as a kid. Okay overall.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 Clear, pale straw body and short-lived sudsy head. Looks like a very pale lager. Aroma is grainy and herbal with some bacterial funk. Flavor is husky and wheaty with some bacterial funkiness and moderate-high acidic tartness, less sour than most lambics, remarkable dryness, and low bitterness. Light bodied, very refreshing and interesting. This beer has grown on me over time. May be the perfect palate cleanser for a marathon beer tasting. I’ve tasted it with woodruff syrup (not good) and raspberry syrup (okay), but prefer it neat.
