Bottle from premier. Pours light gold, haze, slim white head. Light must nose. Taste is slightly tart, lemons, lime. Water body. It’s decent, it would be amazeballed if the body was fuller.

Brigadier (3475) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2016
12 ounce bottle
As long as Ithaca continues to put out beers like this I will buy a few from time to time. At less than $1.99 for a single the risk to reward ratio seems to be favorable. Perhaps they’ll even put out a few more bottles or cans in the style of this sessionable sour soon.

Aroma / Appearance - The rosy golden body warms the table with a soft light. Icy carbonation sneaks upwards with a swift pace. Light wheat, lemons, and a mild tartness fit the style nicely without getting too extravagant.

Flavor / Palate - Sweet golden apples, lemons, and toasted wheat flow freely across the tongue to a crisp conclusion. The dry finish lacks the sparkling tartness of a great berliner weiss. Generally though it manages to retain the spirit of the style. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a local New York rate that isn’t just paint by numbers.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Tom C. As Ithaca Cayuga Cruiser. Hazy khaki-gold. Slightly sour and ripe orange juice aroma, sour and tarty taste with hints of malt. Light body, mildly sour finish.

Scopey (11537) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Tap at at Julian’s, Providence. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The nose is fresh, pale bread, cracker, light barnyard and natural yoghurt. The taste is crisp, tart, quite lactic, spoiled yoghurt, some cheesecake, lime, zesty lemon and decent acidity with a short, dry finish. A bit more lactic than I would prefer, but still OK. Passable Berliner.

ClarkVV (5216) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Draught at Bukowski’s Inman, 9/4/15.
Hazy medium-yellow golden body is well-carbonated and topped by a white head that fades to cover.
Lactic acid is quite straightforward in the nose as wheat dryness further emphasizes the crisp, bright, grainy aroma. Some breadiness, yogurt and just the faintest bit of caramel-honey with no alcohol or flaws.
Again, a very straightforward, respectable example with moderate sourness from the lactic acid and a chewy, wheat-like texture with appropriate carbonation and wateriness, good attenuation and crispness and lactic acid and bready, cereal grains lingering.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into glass. Hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is tart, light body, light soft carbonation, and pretty good small bubble lacing. Taste is tart.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. This was way too sour for my taste and I could barely get it down. A pure torture taste.

mike67 (1043) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours golden with short-lived, foamy white head and lively carbonation. Nose is of bready malt, funky yeast and some citrus. Body is medium and tangy. Taste is very sour, funky yeast, tart, lemon zest and bready malt. Finish is long and sour. Very nice example of the style.

Thanks for the bottle, jcwattsrugger. The body is pale gold with a very thin white head. The fruity tart nose reminds me of lemons and medicine. Any tartness in the taste is restrained, very subtle, especially for the style. There is some hay and bits of bread crust after the light strawberry lemon flavor. A well made and balanced beer.
