Nice Fruit juice aroma with notes of pineapple and an ever present sourness. Pours a pale straw slightly cloudy yellow. The flavor is slightly sour, but not overwhelming lemon and fruit juice/ raspberry are noticeable.

Rating from the bottle, though Iíve had it on tap previously. Pours straw yellow with fizzy but quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is slightly stinky, with some lemons and wheat evident. Taste is lemony and grainy. Really tart on the finish and not too fizzy on the palate. Lingers well. I really love this beer...a wonderful rendition. I need to buy more of this stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Dasilky1.
Poured from a bottle covered in muck, presenting a most unusual lemonade yellow with a nose that drops two big ones, lemon and sun-bleached wheat- on the olfactory. I havenít seen a head on a beer that big since this morning. Nice, white puffy cotton. Flavor really filters out the pollutants with a tart lemon juice begining and a Dom Perignon-esque finish that isnít ashamed to told you where it came from. I love this mouthfeel, Larry; reminds me of the feeling of homemade lemonade in my mouth when I was a kid. And my dead brother. A beer that would go great with a steak sandwich and, a steak sandwich.

750ml bottle served in a tulip. Pale golden color with a light haze and a one-finger thick head of lasting off-white foam. Decent lacing. The aroma had fresh flaked wheat, sourdough bread, and light lemon. The flavor was crisp and sour. Very bready followed by a lemony tartness. Very light and refreshing. Crisp and dry. Simple, but quite tasty and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ Stone World Bistro: Pale straw. Big-bubbled white head slowly fizzles into a tight collar. Expressively lactic aroma displays notes of lemon peel, unripe melon, peach, and dough. Fairly musty with a dab of Band-Aid, as well. Brisk prickles of carbonation turn fuzzy as it hits the palate. Considerable bready heft, upfront, with a crackery pils malt tailing which yields to a lactic tingle reminiscent of unripe peach skin. Robustly phenolic with a tangle of Band-Aid and persistent dough and toasted crackers. Succulent dabs of honeydew melon and peach manage to poke through despite the bracing dryness. Suggestions of popcorn and husks exude here and there. Pleasant fusion of crackers and piecrust is cushioned by gritty pear and unripe peach acidity at the finish. Not a whole lot of depth or complexity here. And, relative to Berliner Weiss, I didnít find this to be a particularly characterful rendition. Middle of the road.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of fogdog. Pours murky white rice water with white head. The aroma is a nice mix of grains, funk, some tartness and then a sense of sweet malts. The taste is crisp and fresh with some lemon acidity, a bit of yeast, some watery sweetness, a tad more tartness and then it seem to head into some grainy malts. Nice stuff.
