3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy light straw color with a diminished white head. Citric and sourdough bread aromas. I catch a bit of grape skin as well in the nose. Soft feel, with just enough zip to keep it lively. Hints of sweetness that are quickly ushered away with a light citric acidity. Almost a bit too sweet and thick at times. I’m sure this would do well with either of the syrups if used sparingly. Linger has a nice return of pale malt along with a touch of vanilla.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost no head left, fully hazy yellow beer. Spicy, lots of citrus, very faintly farmyard smell. Citrus, even expressly lemon, with a strange finishflavour that reminds me of Lindenblossom. Again some very restrained spices, whilst the end is completely lactic acid. Light (but not too light) body, fine carbonation, dry and acidthinning. Fine, lacking the sometimes typical Bruery-over-the-top acidity, true to the style. Many thanks to LouisV!

75cl Bottle. Pours a clear, light yellow with a big, short lasting head. Aroma is tart, wheat, honey, grain, slight honey melon. Taste is pretty weak, but some sour, unrip pear-like tartness and bitterness. Not as fruity as the semll, but more wheaty. Burning sour body and medium high carbonation.
