Tap @ Great Divide’s 18th Anniversary Party. Hazy yellow appearance with a carbonated white head. Somewhat lemony, somewhat tart, dull grainy aroma. A little tart, lemon citrusy, moderate coconut and vanilla, carbonated flavor. Low alcohol- 2% I believe. Light wood note.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Tap at Great Divide, GABF ’09.
Pours a cloudy light yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is malty sour lemon tea leaves and weak pineapple. Flavor is pilsner-esque yeastiness with a nutty, buttery lemon finish. Tingly, adequate mouthfeel. Refreshing, but too malty.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Tap at GD during GABF weekend. Pours a hazy straight yellow gold with moderate carbonation and a nice white head. Aroma is basic wheaty doughy notes, some citrus and floral notes, light lemon but nothing indicatng lots of sour or funk. Flavor verifies this as there is a severe lack of acidity- too young perhaps- still nothing wrong- no acetaldehyde or DMS or isovaleric which all pop up in other breweries attempts at the style- just straight pils and wheat malts, make it easy drinking, but nothing special here- perhaps needs more time with lacto at high temps to bring out acidity?

notalush (4765) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Tap at the brewery - hazy gold, faint head - effervescent, lively in the mouth - a bit of lacto that barely presents as tartness, let alone tanginess/acidity/sourness - some oaky character - a touch of phenolics - citrus - it’s actually quite light and refreshing, but it lacks the punch and complexity of some of the better examples - still, if you’re looking for a refreshing beer, you can’t really go wrong with this.

Indra (2591) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 9, 2009
On draft at the brewery during GABF week 2009. Citric, lightly tart, wheat aroma, some lemon and pleasant yeast tones along with very mild sweetness. Appropriately pale, cloudy yellow color, head is fine and uneven. Flavor is gently sweet and tart, more clean lemon coming through, faint herbal notes in the background and a gentle wheat malt presence throughout. Finishes dry and very mildly bitter. Palate is thin with low-moderate effervescence, body is light. Not as acidic or tart as the classic Old World examples, but certainly passable and very quenching.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2009
On tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a lightly milky yellow with a thin white head. Very faint mustard, light acid, and a hint of sourness. Creamy mouthfeel due to the ample carbonation. Light straw and a slightly chalky acid. Really missing the sourness that makes this style stand out, but definitely something drinkable.
