3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Old rating entered somewhere else incorrectly... Pours hazy pale golden with a frothy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny sour and tiny malty with freshly baked white bread, lemon juice, hay, unflavoured yoghurt and hints of oily pine cones. Taste is sour, slightly salty and tiny malty with lemon juice, unflavoured yoghurt, lemon zest, wheat crackers and hints of salt water, unripe pears and cilantro. Mouthfeel is tiny dry, slightly tart, tiny mouth-puckering and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour and salty with wheat crackers, sour milk, lemon juice, salt water, dried pine needles, hay, unripe pear and ground coriander. Refreshing...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer starts sourish-fresh, hints of herbs, probably a bit salty as well. The mainpart is slightly sourish, not too much herbs noticeable. Slightly salty-sourish till the end. Interesting!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Whole foods Union Square. Bright pastel yellow, dark, cloudy, thick lace. Lemon, lactic nose, a bit of spruce too I think. Lovely flavor, lemon, sprucd, yogurt. Nice balance nad acidity and malt, quite tart but not really acidic. Can’t exactly put my finger on the spruce, but it seems to be adding something just right. Great.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of Alex. Thanks! Pours clear with off white head. Dissipates quickly. Aroma is pretty typical for the style and has a nice touch of tart vinegar to it. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is spot on and has a nice tart flavor that is real nice and not overpowering at all. Does not have any spruce notes at all. Not that I could get. I had this on a hot summer day and really enjoyed it.

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500mL bottle into my Döllnitzer glass -- love the label, good to see the Völkerschlachtdenkmal get some love, it’s really worth the visit if you’re visiting Leipzig, relatively unknown to the larger world and really left an impression on me after several visits. Nose of the beer is, unfortunately, a disastrous mix of stale tire air and unhealthy yeast that covers over the lighter wheat and tart character. Pours yellow-golden, hazy with plenty of carb and a lively, clinging bright white head. Light body but not watery, medium-strong tartness but not puckering, not bitter, finishes on a bready-yeasty note. The spruce is also evident, perhaps more so than the coriander, but adds more a generic sense of "spice," perhaps closer to mint. Very soft and wheat-driven body, smooth and seems almost flat at times, but not oily or slimy. More volume brings out lighter citric notes, pale malt character, faint Skittles; some interesting bread crust character, but distinctly not graininess or caramel. Took me a while (and the bouquet was a major hurdle), but I’ve definitely come around to the subtlety and refreshment, worth a try for sure.
