2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear pale golden with a thin white coating of head. Aroma has banana and clove yeastiness among some dry faint malty wheat and plenty of tartness. Apple juice flavor and some acidity jump out of the body with a touch of sugary sweetness leading toward a tart, dry finish. Thin, over-carbonated body has some refreshing character. An interesting style, but I think this particular version could be done better. Thanks slob for the bonus!

Aroma is salt with a trace of vinnegar. Light yellow. Sweet middle with a shocking sour palate cleansing finish. More refreshing than it sounds. Tasty and only 2.5%.

Pours pale yellow with a good white head. Citrusy, light-fruit aroma. Wow does this one make you pucker up! Very tart flavor of lemon and grapefruit. Couldnít drink many of these, but I really enjoyed it.

Poured a clear pale yellow with a large white head. Aroma was more sweet than tart, but both were there. Flavor was fairly tart, of lemons, and lightly sweet. Would be good in the hot weather as a sub for lemonaid. I donít see why all the complaints for this beer but I guess if you donít like tart/sour then....

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled with SoCal RB guys...thanks to whomever who brought this..my first of the style. Mild aroma, but there are certain aromas of sour lemonness in the nose. Transparent pale straw color with a white head. Sour, funky, astringent, dry Not overly sour like a Cantillon. A unique beer thatís decent naked. Apparently, itís common to drink this mixed with some sort of sweetened additive in Germany.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale yellow, small white head. Slightly sour and grassy nose. Light-bodied, sourish, like drinking lemon water. Long sour aftertaste. Personal but not very enjoyable style.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottled@HBF 2005) Very pale yellow, slightly hazy color with a small head. Sourish aroma with a very strong canned mushrooms scent. Sourish and acidic mushroom and lemon flavor. Light-bodied, dryish and sour, sticky palate. Interesting, but not very pleasant. Now I see why this one is typically blended with additives.

This could single handedly be the oddest drinking/ordering a beer experience ever. I was caught off guard when asked if I want the red or green syrup. Well I went with red. Anyway a murky yellow color with a sharp sour lemon aroma. The flavor is tart and funky with some apples mainly. Once I poured the red syrup in there it was a sour cherry fruit beer and a bit cloying. Now I want to go to Germany and be a bad ass at the bar by ordering my 2.5% ABV beer and getting cherry syrup.
