Acidic cider nose. Pale and hazy low head. Tart and refreshing, lacks in complexity.

aracauna (2994) - Georgia, USA - FEB 18, 2003
Very pale. Not as pale as a Belgian wit, but paler than most other German wheat beer styles. The head is bright white and builds easily but fades to nothing just as easily. This really is a tart beer, as tart as an average lambic (maybe not quite). The tartness fades quickly to a wheaty finish. Clean, crisp, dry in flavor, but wet and tingly on the tongue. Easy-drinking and light but not exciting.

bierkoning (9819) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2003
UPDATED: APR 3, 2013 Bottle. Aroma of sweet apples. Thin bodied and prickly. Strong apple sourness, with just a bit of yeastiness. Citrus and honey. Bottle, tasted 31/03/13, best until 10/11. Pale blonde. Grape juice and lemon in the aroma. Sherry notes. Low on carbon. Grapefruit, lemon and grape juice in the flavor. Upcoming sherry flavors. Moderate sourness.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2011 Bottle@BerlinTegelAirport. This is a re-rate but I wouldnít know what else to write. Strange lemon, wheat and rubarbre aroma. Pale golden, white head, good lace, head diminishes completely. Very light and thin, sour start, light malty, wheat, complex. Sweeter finish with just a little sourness.

Very light. Not nearly as sour as advertised, especially after the guy at the store begged me to buy the syrup that many put in it and then gave me a look like "its your funeral" when i scorned it. It is refreshing and i could see a beer of this style with a little more sourness (perhaps Schulthauss) being a great summer beer.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2003
Very sour as touted, but very drinkable. Extremely refreshing. This would be a great summer beer. Didnít know what the alcohol content was until now...disappointing. Oh well, Iím going to be on the lookout for a better example of this style.

wheatbeerboy (103) - Addison, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2003
RE-RATE: Jan. 6, 2003 I really enjoy this style of beer. Itís very sour, but also very refreshing. I woofed down a six-pack in about an hour. The only major drawbacks with this beer are the price and the low alcohol content.

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2002
Tried this one with and without syrup much better with syrup. Too sour has a green apple flavor which I like but something about this weisse which makes it hard to finish. Also I think I paid 12 to 14$ for pack way over priced.

Tried w/ & W/o syrup. While I normally like my brews unadorned I much preferred this w/ syrup. Enjoyed the sourness, but after the additon I was able to quaff with ease.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 1, 2002
Unflavored: 8/4/8/3/17: 4.0 overall -- looks exactly like champagne, or a quality sparkling cider; very tiny quick-dying head. Aroma sour and grapy, also like a good dry champagne; no hoppiness. Flavor is certainly sour, but less so than many lambics that Iíve had; I found it very pleasant and refreshing. There is a very slight metallic bitterness at the end, but otherwise the finish is very smooth and the sourness quite pleasing and refreshing all the way through. No way this is the sourest beer Iíve had; now letís try it with some syrup... <p> Besyrupped: ok, I know woodruff, raspberry etc are traditional, but this is Vermont, so Iím gonna try a couple of teaspoons of maple. Appearance darker now, a pleasing dark amber, and the tiny lines of white bubbles across the top make it look like a barley wine. Maple aroma does not seem to mix well with wheaty/citrusy sour-champagne. Flavor is very interesting; really becomes something totally different, and nothing like the "maple wheats" made in this country. Sourness is still strongly present at the front, but the maple cuts it quite a bit in the middle and leaves the end rather sugary. I liked it more "neat" and those are the numbers Iíll use; with maple, 6/4/7/2/13: 3.2. All in all, I canít wait to get my hands on some other examples of the style!
