Lime and apple nose, with caramel undertones. Clear golden, medium head. Thin mouthfeel, but not quite watery. Lime dominant flavor. Fruity, but not very sweet and not very malty.

nimbleprop (4536) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Sampled at the DC Ratebeer Gathering. 750ml bottle pours a transparent gold with a thin, cloudy white head. Very grassy aroma, herbal, wormwood, perfume. Flavor is better, sweet, tart, herbal, light lemon, a little grass, flower petals. Full bodied, herbal finish.

craftycarl21 (2205) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Sampled at GT2’s birthday tasting. Hazy straw pour with a small head. Nose holds grass, wheat, lemon and rye. Sparkling but boring effervescence. Meh.

rand (1250) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 16, 2011
Bouteille 33 cl du Comptoir du Poulpe - La Roche-sur-Yon (F). Blonde paille à haute mousse dessinant des dentelles. Arôme fruité de malt, citron, miel, pain frais. Le goût est plaisant, acide-douceur, avec du citron, des notes d’herbes en amertume, foin et grain, levure. croustillante. Bel équilibre avec le houblon. Un peu commun en France mais rafraîchissant et sympa à boire en terrasse.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2011
transparent gold, thin white head goes to a frothy ring. Lightly soapy, husky grain/rice nose, bit of milk and grass nose. Little lemon, metallic, light grain through the finish. Soft palate, short finish. Pleasant, most bdg in the finish than anywhere else, where instead it shows as a weird berliner weisse.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Straw pour with a small white head. Tons of bready lemon in the nose, giving way to flavors of cider, vinegar, lemon juice, and sour wet bread. Light palate with medium effervescence and a dry finish.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle: pours a clear pale golden with a spotty lacing white head. Has a light biscuity malty nose with a touch of tart fruits. Starts with light effervescence and soft doughy maltiness with a lot of citric tartness before a drier tart finish. Has a little too much tartness for the style.

GT2 (8161) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
750mL thanks to beerandblues2. Hazy bright yellow with a small yellow head. Specks of white lace. Nose is oatmeal grainy, lemon, wheat, almost Berliner Weisse with some weird soapy off character. Taste follows Berliner Weisse trend with tart lemon, oatmeal, wheat, ultra light body and very enjoyable if off for style. Tart, quenching, refreshing body.

BeerandBlues2 (9356) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear pale straw with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is fragrant herbal and earthy hops, light straw malt, and light esters. Flavor is lightly tart hops and fruity esters, light malt, light earthy and farmhouse notes with a dry finish. Light body, low warmth, medium carbonation.

humlelala (946) - DENMARK - AUG 14, 2011
(33 cl bottle from ABC Terroirs, Nantes) Pours a hazy, pale yellow with little, white head. Aroma is unpleasantly skunky with notes of what smells like boiled cauliflower. Oily texture, thin-bodied with medium carbonation and an astringent finish. The taste is midly sour with mildly bitter notes. Unpleasant. Girlfriend says "It tastes like dishwashing water."
