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 (5074) - 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 (5732) - 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.
