bottle- pours out amber light orange .. . medium headring, light refined lacing .. . mild sourness/tartness .. . tart hay, mild lemon rind, grain, and light odd dough .. . mouth feels alright, not super solid but something feels slightly off .. . drinks very easy though, enjoyed my bottle! .. . . I hate how spiders just sit there on the walls and act like they pay rent!

Beerenberger (1265) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Aroma of citrus, and a wonderful barnyard funk. Pours a cloudy light yellow with a white ring and no lacing. The taste is much like the nose. Lemon zest and sourness with a dry bitterish finish. Medium-light body with crisp carbonation. Crisp fizzy mouthfeel. Overall, a very enjoyable, crisp, dry sour ale. Would be great as an appertif prior to a meal as wel as with various dishes.

Bottle at home with my wife. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Sweet peach skin, apricots, grapefruity, white wine, somewhat oaky, doughy, pears, green apples, light spice, sweet tarts, light urine, and butterscotch in the aroma. Taste is peach skin, green apples, pears, light pepper, fruit skin, wheat, doughy, biscuity, and earthy with a light spicy finish. Medium body with medium-to-soft carbonation. Not bad, but a bit off.
