25/X/14 - 33cl bottle @ The Autumn Gathering formerly known as RBBAG Mons (Gent) - BB: 16/VII/15, bottled: 16/VII/14 (2014-1264) Thanks to Martinus for sharing the bottle!

Clear pale yellowish beer, aery white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: bit fruity, apple juice, sweet, sugary, floral touch. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: pretty watery sourish, stomach acid, yes, tastes like barf... :( Aftertaste: sourish, dirty, watery, medicinal bitterness, meh. Someone did a too well impression of the Kindl version which I found also really bad.

Thank you Martinus! Tasting glass from 330 ml. bottle consumed @ “The Tasting formerly known as Mons RBBAG I (2014)”. 16/07/2014. Extremely pale citrus, little white. Typical Berliner sour, light funk, tad lactic, lemon juice, funk, barnyard. Body is tad light. Pretty standard example of the style. Decent but I’m not the biggest fan of the style for some odd reason despite being big time into sours.

[Bottle (650ml) shared with Ferris, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o Ferris] Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with a spare white head. Aroma of salt first followed by citrusy tartness. Flavour’s not as citrusy tart as expected and a bit sour. Average to medium bodied. More Gose-like then Berliner Weisse to me, but pleasant enough regardless.
