3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ The Mayor of Old Town. Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Tangy lemon, vanilla, a bit funky, a bit juicy, wheat aroma. Flavor is lightly tart, a bit herbal, lemon, citrusy, and fairly dry. Not one of my favorites from these guys but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. The claim is a Berliner Wiesse base with lacto and fermented with sacc, and it has no adjuncts, treatments or fruit / spice addition (thank you!). Funny enough there is a very distinct lemon rind / oil flavor and aroma that comes through (not pineapple) the wheat and pale malt base; phenols are medium to low; esters are low. Malt is somewhat starchy. Tart and sour (as in sour cream). Highly attenuated, medium acid, medium to high effervescence. Some dried flower petal notes along with the more typical sulfur and silt that I get from their yeast strain (though perhaps this is a different strain from their regular, regardless of that, I still get that sulfur character). As with most of the their beer, this one is coarse and husky, but it’s the oily lemon rind film that is left in the mouth that is most off-putting. It doesn’t ruin the experience, only diminishes it. More solid than the other recent beers I’ve tried from them.

Draft at Falling Rock Tap House, served in a tulip. Nice big pour. Pours a hazy, pale yellow-gold with an inch or so of white head. Notes of wheat, grass, pineapple, lacto, dough, straw, lemongrass, and a little splash of lemon juice. Light-bodied, with a husky, tart mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer. Hit the spot.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought slight corn, grass, hints of vanilla in there with a touch of lemon, hints of corn note as well, it’s decent but it’s fairly mild. Taste is a mix of slight lemon but mostly bready, doughy notes, into some slight vanilla, touch of yeasty, finishing fairly dry.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewery - not exactly a traditional version - apparently brewed with lacto and a witbier yeast - turbid gold - nose is wheaty, densely yeasty, only lightly acidic - mouthfeel is nice - soft and frothy carbonation - moderstely berliner in character - mild lactic tartness, soft, tangy wheat flavors - a bit of lemon - light savory notes - dusty, basement yeast character - finish is bready, with lingering tartness - simple, nontraditional, but not too bad.
