(Draught) Pours a hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of white grapes, green peppers, cherry, herbal, and wood. Flavor of sour grapes, cherry, and some citrus with a dry oak finish.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Tap at Night of the Funk. Very light body, a touch of tart. Thin nose, minor sourness, a little lemon lime. Nice body otherwise. This reminds me of a Berliner Weisse. This is the kind of beer I absolutely need to sit down with and chug a pint or two... puny 2oz festival samples simply will not do. Please, PLEASE Ithaca bottle this one or at least send a few kegs to NYC!

Tap from 08 Night of the Funk. Aroma of orange seeds, other citrusy notes, other seedy notes. Flavor citrusy again with some tartness. Pleasant but little more.

LilBeerDoctor (3429) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Tap sampled 09/26/08 at Night of the Funk. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of light melon, citrus, orange zest, and fruitiness. This beer is quite similar to a Berliner Weisse. Some light sweetness and tartness. Light and drinkable with a hint of wheat. A nice beer to relax with.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Light and tart. Reminds me of a beer version of a Vinho Verde. Super refreshing.
