Sample at McNulty’s Bier Markt on 9/13/14. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Aroma of malty sweetness and not much else. Malty sweet flavor with lager yeast accents before a crisp and sorta salty finish.

Tap sample. Poured a hazy light pale color with an average white fizzy head that lasted with good lacing. Medium salt and sour fruits aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour fruit flavor with a sour finish of medium duration. Interesting brew.

Perfectly clear orange gold pour with very short lived light airy white head. Mild sour aroma, like you just passed by someone eating sauerkraut. Taste follows nose with a little sweetness like a weak apple cider. Surprisingly enjoyable

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle [a generous local-local trade add-on due to bartlebier’s bounteousness]. Clear, orangey golden colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sourish aroma has salty notes of Sauerkraut with a cathartic effect on the sinuses, hints of brine, a herbal touch of dill. Taste is slightly sourish with hints of Sauerkraut and mustard, subtle malt sweetness, a salty touch, brine, herbal hints of dill, gherkin; minimally biting, super-soft palate, very well balanced, primely refreshing. Excellent.

50 cl bottle from Meny Åsgårdstrand. Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is salty with notes of spices, wheat, yeast and fruit. Flavour is salty and light tart with a soft fruit finish. Quite a special beer style. Not my kind of beer

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to summer secret santa. Pours cloudy orange, medium creamy off-white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Coriander hits first on the aroma, followed by clear notes of lemon, sea breezes, some hay. Flavor is light sweet, light tart, lemony, salty on the finish primarily, some grain. Medium body, prickly carbonation. Pretty decent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5L tap at Gosenchenke Ohne Bedenken (Leipzig). Pours hazy pale with a small white head. Aroma is sour (as expected), with some light malt. Flavor is fairly uni-dimensionally sour with some salt as well. Caraway schnapps helps this! Some sweetness creaps in the middle, but finishes with long, mild sour flavor. Light body with a slick mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, the beer is quite similar to a geuze from Belgium, and is certainly an interesting regional beer, but not my favorite style.
