COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most brewers spend a lot of time and effort keeping lactobacillus out of their breweries; it was the first thing we brought in (it still has to stay in the corner though). We blend together two different beers to make Troublesome. The first is a somewhat uninteresting wheat beer and the second is an overly acidic & funky beer fermented solely with lactobacillus. We blend the two beers together with coriander and salt at the tail end of fermentation to create a mild, lemony tartness and a fuller sensation of mouthfeel. And yes, it’s hard to make.

jgb9348 (4690) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Slightly hazy crisp golden coloured body with a honey glow and a very thin, single centimetre tall white head. Aroma of pure gose with a little funk, some light sugars, a hint of hay, some grass, barnyards and a little cat pee as well - funky as hell, but very light. Super light bodied; Mellow lemon and coriander seed flavour with a little hops perceptible, but basically a mild wit with some slightly funkier flavours. Aftertaste shows some lemons and light grains with no alcohol or sourness at all to speak of, but just some hay and grass. Overall, a nice very very light beer with a subdued complexity and depth that is really only noticed on the back-end of a sip and then only for a few seconds. Great to try and a good, but not great representation of the style - a perfect beer for a hot summer, but luckily we’ve had a very easy summer in Washington. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Bowery), New York on 25-April-2014 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington on 18-August-2014.

daje (2146) - NORWAY - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, july 25th 2014. Clear dark golden with a small yet lively white head. Aroma is fruity with wheat and acidic funkiness. Taste is sweet and salty with coriander and a late funk taste which raises the saltiness in an interesting way. Wheaty and acidic finish with fruit and coriander. Nice and special, just slightly sour and quite refreshing.

Defreni (2601) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2014
Fad: Lysegul klar øl med et stort bid på tungen og i næsen. God duft af amerikansk humle, men smagen er let syrlig med en smule salt. Virkelig en god øl med masser af kraft i forhold til procenterne.

Bottled. Color is very pale yellow (pale lager almost), little to no lacing. Certainly much lighter fare than I would usually go for. That being said, for a summer beer it’s pretty good. Fo aroma, coriander comes through, very light and lemony. Flavor is slightly sour (nothing too heavy) with the wheatiness coming through for sure. this is very light and very easy drinking.

mathieuc (1225) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle shared by Jean-Michael, thanks! Pours a hazy pale yellow with a fizzy white head that disappears on a moment’s notice and only leave some lacing. Nose is of coriander, citrus and carries some sulfur on top of fresh wheat. Taste is fruity, offers fresh wheat again but not much tartness which is a slight bummer. There is again a lot of coriander and some lemony angles. Salt? Almost unnoticeable but it’s in there. Body was light to medium, carbonation just medium and mouthfeel was "wheat smooth". Overall a good albeit simple and non-aggressive take on the style.
