2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is sour, grainy, toasted malt. Not sweet at all. The appearance is gold/orange, quickly dissipating white head. The flavor is sour, vegetables, lemon, cardboard. The finish is tart, dry, grainy flavors, cardboard. Light/medium in body. Not good at all. This beer is the reason why they started cutting berliner weiss with raspberry syrup.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Pilsner Room in Portland. Bright golden, with a thick, fine white head. Faint nose of lemon, minerals and a bit of lactic acid. Lemon flavor, light yogurt, big malt, quite salty. Alka-seltzer like minerals. Nice lemon, but it lacks sufficient lacto character.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. A touch of corn and funk on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet and grainy, a hint of lactic acid. Then gets a touch unpleasant, old paper and grain. Wheat and corn juice, some off flavors and then lemon juice. Strange papery bitterness follows, grainy and weird. Not the best example of the style. Vaguely drinkable, but not really worthwhile.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Saraveza’s IIPA Fest, to cleanse the palate. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is heavy on the wheat, with a slight tartness. Flavour is very wheaty, with only a slight tartness - very low acidity. Refreshing I suppose, but not so well made.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Clear gold with a white head. Light tart and lemony, a little bit of sweetness, and some just slightly off grainy notes. Medium dry finish, with a hint of wheat and grains. This is close to being good, but doesn’t quite hit the mark. Still pretty refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
To think that I used to deprecate wheat beers. Pleasant grassy and floral aroma, smelled. Wheaty flavour with bread and hoppy notes. Hoppy finish with a sweet bit.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I know their hearts were in the right place, but this is a disappointing miss. Medium-light body, light amber. It’s kinda sour-ish, sorta.

Growler from Bruekelen Bier Merchants. Brownish yellow clear bear with quickly diminishing head. Aroma of light citrus, hay and more fresh barley than anything. Flavor is predominately tart citrus with a slight cool candy citrus finish. Thin clean body. Great to drink all day while unpacking.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest 2012, clear yellow pour with fizzy white head, aroma brought notes of some slight corn, grain and biscuit, sweet honey and crackery malts as well, hints of slight lemon and lactic, touch of funk, some slight lemon notes come through as well. Taste is a mix of sour grain, hints of funk, slight corn and a vegetal note, not much going on here maybe slight biscuit malt as well. Pretty watery finish.
