2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle:   Lost half the bottle due to excessive gushing.   Pale straw with a strong white hint, seems whiter
than most Witbiers!   Large frothy head, dies quickly, little lacing.   Odd musty cheese like nose.   Smells
like really really old brown Goat cheese.   Nice sweet tartness up front, but the water seems very mineral like, gets
very mealy (instead of wheaty) on the backside.   This one is a bit rough.   Oh man, the finish is like licking
icicles coming off a steel roof.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Just canít get past that aroma and mineral
water like presense.   Does seem to be very tart, bordering on sour, with a nice lemon aspect.   However, thatís
about it.   Nice to see someone trying this, but perhaps after 6 months in the cellar this one was aged 6 months too
long?   Heavy mineral water aftertaste.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours sort of dishwater/lemon juice with a foamy white head that got some dirty sediment on it while the damn beer keeps foaming out of the bottle. Good fun!! Aroma is sour lemon with some earthy yeasty aspects. Med body. Flavor is sort of dirt/earth/yeast with lots of sour lemon. Kind of a wild and wooly Berliner Weiss. It fits the style, though there are some strange taste aspects, which Iím getting used to . Finishes really lemon sour with earthiness that isnít funky. Go figure. What it looks like in the glass is something you wouldnít want to drink. But do it.

First rate. Glad to be back in washington getting my tick on. Thatís whats up hoes. Nose of tart green apple wheat and corn. Pours hazy light yellow thin white ring of foam. Tart cotton candy wheat corn green apple and a lemony finish with a hint of solvent. Lingering tartness and dry lemon notes. Well carbonated light body. Chewy wheat finish. Not my favorite.
