jcnielsen (2251) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from adnielsen. Thanks Aaron! Minimal aroma of tart lemon and bread. Cereal, tart, lemon, yogurt flavors. Not an overly powerful beer, but solid.

MacBoost (1399) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from Aaron. Pours a very pale straw color with a large head. Aromas of wheat and sour lemons. Taste is tart and lightly sweet. Flavors of sour wheat, with some yogurt twang. Quenching. I dig this.

Crockett (1012) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Nose of barnyard, bret yeast, citrus, faint cheese. Gorgeous pale yellow cloudy pour with a big pillowy heavy lacy head. Very lemony... traces of salt (almost gose-like). Crisp and lively. First thoughts are Fish and Chips as a perfect pairing. Fresh dough. Clean. Wonderful and stylish.

jackl (4920) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle as an extra in a trade. Hazy gold with massive eggshell white head. Yogurt-covered bread. Lemon peel. A hint of bell pepper. Taste is similar. Light lemon, sour cream. Spritzy, lively on the palate. Light.

[ Bottle ][ ˝ of 35.5cl ][ Tasting ][ ][ Tulip ][ 11.25.14 ]
Transparent gold, huge puffy white head, dense lacing. Sweet green grape nose, skin but plenty of sugary flesh, light lacto drowned in sweetness, a little green. Faint paint thinner and greenness at front palate, doughy grains with light toast mid, cleaner lactic finish, still considerable sweetness, fizzy in the contrast and thin, sparkling minerality with the short finish leaving lightest grains.

StefanSD (2188) - Lakeside, California, USA - NOV 9, 2014
12 oz bottle from trade. Thanks. Pours a hazy yellow color with a big foamy white head that has excellent retention. The aroma is tart with lemons and a trace of sour green apple. The taste is more mildly tart citrus with lemons, limes and most interestingly the foamy head has a semi-sweet meringue effect. This beer is quite literally to drink a lemon meringue pie. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long and sour. Overall: Thanks to whoever sent me this, I’ve done so many trades in the past few months that I’ve lost track. Gonna have to start labeling the bottles.

Bottle from weihenweizen in trade with CAO Brasilia, golden color with big creamy foam, tasty aroma of wheat and sour lemon, nice balanced flavor of bright lemon, wheat, has a sweet note, quite mild clean sour finish, very good

Nero55 (772) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle. Light golden with very large white head. Aroma of tartness, pear, and some grain. Light body, medium tartness, apple/pear notes, and a dry finish.

monkeychugg55 (907) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Yellow body with a big white head. The aroma has apple, citrus, funk, and a bit of acidity. The flavor is similar, very nice and refreshing. A nice malt character comes through as well. Lots of carbonation and a dry, tart finish.

Catching up on RBAG 2014 notes backlog...bright hazy yellow. Tart/sour lemony citrus, light effervescent palate, dry finish. Very refreshing.
