Draft at the source. Market golden color that arrived at the table without head. Aroma is sour wheat, hints of yogurt and mild lemon.
The flavor is a direct reflection of the aroma. Soured wheat base, tart lemons, mild lactic and yogurt tones. Body is light with a low carbonation level.

Pours cloudy gold into a tulip. Bright white head with little retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Tart citrus aromas. Dry and watery with mild lemony citrus and crushed aspirin upfront quickly turning to an abrupt finish. Amazing little flavor of any kind.

On tap at the brewery/brewpub, pours cloudy pale orange with small finger of head. Nose is grassy orange citrus, herbal spice, lemongrass, cheese. Taste is crisp with low-medium acidity, nice lacto acidity with decent lemon and grain, though also has some faint band-aid and after a few sips some basil, soapy, and herbal dill notes emerge. Finishes tart and dry, crisp. Serviceable.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 22oz Bomber from the brewery store yesterday. Pours a cloudy orange blonde color witha fizzy two finger head that fizzes away quickly. Aromas are subtle tart lemon and apricot with slight touches of wheat and the smallest amount of funk. The palate follows the nose nicely with great carbonation and mouthfeel to deliver the tart crisp flavors right on the mark. Nice refreshing finish with the slightest funky quality lingering in the background...

On-tap at Portsmouth Brewery, 20/2012, around 4:13 pm. Pours a murky vanilla-yellow, no detectable head in sight. Smells of phenols, Belgian funk, coriander, sage and young cheese, but its nose although highly intriguing is also hardly there. But tastes basically of everything discussed above only adding a wheaten grain characteristic and some farmyard yeast. Out of the two versions, the "syrup version", and the "non-syrup" version, I ordered the "non" and was quite happy with my decision. Thanks to Tod for giving people the option to get either or. Needless to say, I liked his traditional way of serving it, which meant not to put anything else in the concoction. Tasty stuff, for sure.
