brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Cloudy golden body produces mild lace which recedes quickly. Lactic Greek yogurt aroma blends with the citric Berliner base for a nicely refreshing, flavorful, simple flavor profile. Low carb, which is off for the style but preferable to me. I could drink a ton of this.

Only oddity: this smells a bit like peanut butter (wtf?!) at times, and I'm positive it isn't the glass or anything else invasive. I don't mind it at all, just strikes me as odd. Won't keep me from drinking a crapload of these :)

330ml bottle from the brewery. Pours clear gold with no head. Sugary lemon juice aroma. Taste continues, with funk, sour apple laces and sherbet. Nice.

77ships (4251) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2014
25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Almost clear golden, citrus, thick creamy white head. Nose is thick citrus acitidy, clean lemon, almost funk, lots of bottled lemon juice. Taste is heavy on those small bottles of lemon juice, lemon acid, concentrade, light vinegar, sour, zest,.. lightly puckering, very straightforward. Crazily easy to drink. Very simple but so-ooo good. This beat the fruited varieties I have had hands down.

3.2%. Golden Yellow. Head evaporates very quickly. Taste is lemon and apple. Sour but not lip-puckering. Hint of vinegar, hardly noticeable and only in the taste. Aroma is champagne/lemon/sour grapes.
