750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a hazy golden blond with off-white hear that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; tart and wild. Nice and lively on the palate. Good beer!

What a treat, thanks Santa! The carb on this is thru the roof, much likened to bubbly. Ya get some sweet fruit and a touch of sour, very quaff-able and extremely enjoyable.

wedgie9 (2004) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Tasted on 9/21/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Louisville Beer Store. Pours cloudy yellow with a massive, foamy perfectly white head that slowly recedes to thin, bubbly lace. The nose is dry and funky, almost Champagne-like yeastiness with a touch of tart lemon pith, and a bit of a wheaty malt aroma. The flavor is very similar, with a tart, yet very lightly sweet preserved lemon, a bit more of a biscuity flavor than suggested on the nose, and plenty of dry, funky yeast. The body is fairly light with sparkling carbonation and a very long, faintly sweet, but very tart preserved lemon finish.

MiP (13671) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle, 6.5%. Slow gusher. The aroma is quite lactic at first. Also has some soft fruit, mango, and perhaps a little fresh lemon juice. Cloudy milky yellow colour. Sparkling. No head. The flavour is sourish. Milky and fruity sourness. Tart finish. A little sweetness to balance. Finishes with a dry and clean lemon note. High carbonation, fizzy. Refreshing. A bit like Berliner Weisse, but better.

Bottle, courtesy of yespr. Pours very fizzy, cloudy pale yellow with quickly vanishing off-white head. Clear, vinous aroma with sparse hoppy notes. Intensive vinous flavour with notes of yeast and subtle touches of hops. Mild finish. A nice one.

Smakprov @Brekeriet. Gyllengul lätt beslöjad med vitt skum. Doft av citron, jäst och lätt funkighet. Frisk citrus med jäst och kryddighet. En balanserad syrlighet som gör ölen frisk och lättdrucken.
