wedgie9 (1930) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a growler at some point during the RBWG Asheville festivities. Pours hazy dark yellow with a thick white head that leaves rocky lace. The nose is on the maltier side of berliner with a ton of creamy wheat and some light lemon acidity. The flavor is about the same with more creamy wheat than anything and a nice, crisp lemon acidity. The body is light with lively, nearly sparkling carbonation and a medium creamy wheat and decently tart finish.

Funky, dried apple nose. Dingy golden, headless. Tart lemon and green apple, vegetal with a pronounced spinach note. Fizzy, light body. Very sour, very infected.

Nice, would be a good thirst quencher in the summer.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Growler at RBWG 2014, thanks! Pours a cloudy earthy dull yellow with an off-white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has earthy wheat with a light tart lemon note. Flavor has a light lemony tartness but is mainly full of earthy wheat.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Growler in the hotel room while wrapping uo RBWG 2014. Pours cloudy gold with a fine, creamy head. Mild lacto tang in the nose, hints of white peaches and lemon. Light sweet flavor, assertive tartness, lots of citric lemon bite. Light bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Clean, fresh sour lemon finish, slight metal and salt, a bit of tongue-blister, light citrus sugars. Moderateky dry. Very refreshing.
