3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2003 33 cL bottle. I can't say I liked what I found. I thought perhaps this bottle had gone south as it was freshness dated for 4/02, but I see by the description that the style is exactly as I experienced. Thin head dwindles to nothing over a pale yellow beer. Spritzy, with a very sour lemonade and grapefruit taste. Sourness overcomes any malts or hop impression. It was worth it to experience the style, but this won't become one of my favorites. I have a second bottle that I'll try with a syrup (or maybe a peach schnapps or Frango liquer?).
Re-sampled, Nov. 15, '03. This time I was prepared with a bottle of raspberry flavoring syrup. Just a little splash made it nice and smooth. Though pinkish, of course, the tartness remaining gave it an edge over most raspberry beers. Probably might even be well matched with a 7-up.

Hazy yellow. Super sour beer that I think is downright undrinkable. German friends tell me you drink with syrup...a beer should stand on its own. Awful

Flaska på tyskt gasthaus norr om Berlin. Frisk, syrlig och jästig vetesmak. Stiltypisk, trevlig, men heller inget utöver det vanliga. Ok

Has none of the complexity of the lambrics being lighter and weaker. Nothing at all special. Really made to go with some syrup. Still it aint half bad and makes a decent cheap sour beer. Is a bit thin and watery in the end though.

Bardzo przyjemne. Delikatne, kwaśne, orzeźwiające i o solidnym nasyceniu. Piwo wspaniale pije się przy jedzeniu - pobudza apetyt, a nie zostawia intensywnego posmaku na języku.
