Tap at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Fes. Clear dark gold. White foam that quickly dissipated. Sour nose. Tasted light and pleasantly funky and sour.

bigtaster (551) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Semi clear very small and head yellow color. Clove floral notes, sour notes. Body is light, sour from start to finish, not really a Weiss beer, just a soured wheat. Enjoyable soured beer.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours hazy pale gold with razor thin white head (which is a lot for a Vivant beer). Notes of oak, clove, solidly tart.

Atom (1338) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2014
On tap a brewpub pours a cloudy golden/yellow with a small white head. Aroma of tart lemon, slight oak, and lacto. Taste is tart lemon, creamy lacto, mild oak. Bright and tasty, yum!!

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2013
On tap at FoBAB 2013 (Chicago, IL). Pours a nicely hazed golden straw hue, gentle haziness. Some nice frothy whitish head atop stays as a mellow ring, sticks around and laces ok. Aromas are gentle Belgian yeast, mellow spice, estery fruit. Touches of lactic acidity are lemony, some subtle crab apple, flaked wheat and bread dough. Touches of yogurt, oak. Initial is a bit spicy, Belgian yeast and touches of fruity ester show some pear, lemon and apple. Decent tartness, apple, pear, gentle clove and Belgian yeast. Subtle oak, funk. Dryness, crisp bready elements. Some tartness funk, and oak. Nice stuff, a bit bland the Belgian yeast does some work.

crossovert (7309) - Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Light, dry, tart, refreshing brew, hazed white pour, I guess its aberliner with some kind of belgian yeast.

tectactoe (1722) - Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Tap: golden body, so mudded with yeast that it’s basically opaque; thin, fleeting, bone-white head is gone in a few moments. Aroma is kind of subdued, with faint lemon tartness, hay, soft wheat, & not much else. Taste has more tart lemon flesh & peels up front with a bit of wheat surrounding it. Mid-palate gets quite astringent & sharp but never reaches puckeringly sour levels... Only a mild tartness, very faint acidity. Light oak/wood in the finish; dry with a touch of hay.
