Fritz123 (963) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Draft at the Syb Pig. Snifter. Pours like a pilsner with a fluffy white head. Aroma of wheat, raspberries, tartness, bread. The taste though was oddly mild. Almost nothing. Little sourness. Nothing great.

jgb9348 (4689) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Hazy light ruby tinted copper and light brown coloured body with a thin, fast-dying just off-white head. Aroma of sour grapes, tons of raspberries, wheat, yeast and a bit of light icing sugar. Medium-bodied; Nice very light fruity flavours with raspberries coming out, some light grapes and bunches of sour apples. Nice light finish with a lot of tart flavours, a very light wheat and yeast flavour with a good sour finish with not much alcohol - a very nice drink. Overall, a nice fruited version of the style with some tart notes and a good light finish. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Lueken’s Liqour earlier today in Dunedin, Florida on 01-January-2014 for US$5.49 sampled later in the day on New Year’s Day 2014 in my hotel room here in Clearwater, Florida.
