Bottle. Golden body with fast disappearing white head. Nice fruity aroma with peaches hints of wheat hints of banana. Taste is some wood, some barnyard and also fruits and malts. Aftertaste is sour fruity, dry and malty. Very nice and refreshing. Ideal summer beer.

750 ml bottle shared by Sebilinz at RB Linz Tasting, thanks!
Golden-orange, hazy body, with a small, frothy, white head.
Aroma of barnyard, sweet and sour fruits, oak, bread, some sweet malts.
Tastes follows this, with some leathery notes.
Quite light mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes sour, with oak, earth, some fruits, some leather.
Really nice. Very refreshing, with a well balanced sourness and lovely oak notes. I don’t get much of the wheat though. Overall a very enjoyable sour ale.

Wheatie light floral soap aroma has a fresh perfume quality to it. Hazy, light yellow white body with quick foamy white bubbles. Fizzy wheat and zippy lime zest flavour is nice and fresh. Light body is smooth. Quite enjoyable

Clear gold, strong white head. Sour, hints of clove and pepper. Sour, yet not overly so, medium bodied and delicious. Wonderful.

Bottle about 7 months old. Slightly cloudy yellow. Nose of massive bretty pineapple, wheat, some light lemon zest. Flavors of wheat, light spicey andfruity yeast elements, lemon tartness. Think the age has really benefited this with some time in the bottle. Very balanced and much better than I expected.

En øl som er for syrlig og bitter. Det er akkurat som om det er presset en sitron oppi.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. No date. Appearance: pale yellow and mostly clear, with thick bubbled white foam cap.
Aroma: Lacto sour aroma dominates. German weizen yeast is barely noticeable. Was expecting more.
Taste: A light sour apple flavor is prominent, with the lactic acidity front and center. Again, no noticeable banana esters or clove phenols I’d expect from something with weizen yeast.
Mouthfeel: Light body and a crisp carbonation.
Finish: tart acidity from the lacto lingers on the tongue well after the swallow. A faint hint of light maltiness as well.
Overall: I was intrigued by the combination of German weizen yeast and sour cultures to try this beer. The thought of those wonderful weizen esters and aromas with some acidity seemed like a great combo....but I honestly get none of it. The lacto dominates in the absence of any semblance of weizen yeast character. The beer is still very crisp, tart, and drinkable, but I feel like I’m drinking a slightly subdued Berliner Weisse
