1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
6th March 2014
Jack is back tasting at Bruce’s. Thanks to Leighton. Cloudy gold beer, residual white head. Dry airy palate. Acid dominates, some floral lemongrass is discernable but the level of acidity is physically painful on the burning swallow. Light dry finish. Drain pour, or if you the Legend that is Leighton, a half bottle chug!

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Bottle shared in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours pale, hazy yellow with a foamy white head. The nose has tangy lemon. Light sweet flavor and heavily acidic, some tart lemons, grass. Light bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Burning acidic finish, more lemons, notes of plastic. A bit harsh and aggressive. I still managed to down a half bottle.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours cloudy gold with a small white head. The nose is fresh, barnyard, lemon peel, lemongrass, lemon sherbets, vinegar and candy. The taste is harsh, massive acidity, straight lemon juice, sherbet, vinegar, wood and more acid. Intense lemony acid action. Damn it burns..... Aggressive stuff!

Big ole bottle pours with an opaque papery sort of pale gold body that supports a near white head. The aroma, at first, had an intriguing sliced salty salami deli meat nuance to it. As it sat for a bit the salami note drifted away. I was left with tart lemon like fruitiness, some grainy malts, breadiness, a grain or two of salt and some raspberry like notes. The taste offers up tart lemon drop candy rolling into a thin yet pleasing degree of funkiness mixed with grainy bread notes. Wow. I like this.

750. Thanks D! Pours a cloudy pale amber with a loose white head. Big salty nose, nice tangy lemon peel notes, some pleasant hints of balsamic way in the background. Creamy medium body, very lively carb. Lemons and saline sourness on the mid palate, bracing but not wildly out of balance. Refreshing, to the same degree that really intense lemonade is. Long tart finish.

750ml bottle, shared by b3shine. Bright, hazy golden color. Little off-white head. Couple loose dots of lace. Very nice floral, citrusy hoppy nose. Tart, lemony taste, and floral notes. Medium body. Lightly soft, kinda crisp, lighter carbonation, sort of slick. Delicious, tart, refreshing, flavorful berliner weisse.

Cloudy yellow pour with a nice fluffy white head. Sour fruit, ginger, yeast and oh my this is cool as shit. I don’t now how they made all these flavors meld well together, but they sure as hell did! Wow.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with DrSilverworm and the Mrs.; thanks Kerry). Looks good; a hazy golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells solid; tart and lactic with notes of lemon. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid, but not special.
