TheAlum (6297) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Draft on tap at Kaiser Tiger (Chicago, I). Finally excited to score this one. Poura a hazy straw yellow hue with just hints of hazy gold on the bottom and edges glowing. Firm haze, frothy whitish head atop is firm, sticks around and laces well enough. A looser filmy layer, decent ringer laces ok overall. Aromas are a bit lemony and dry, twangy lactic is a faint bit metallic, yogurty and tart. A grainy element comes back, dry bready malts, straw, tartness ebb and flow. Initial is tart, on point lemony goodness. Firm but not overwhelming lactic acidity has a voice.. Citrus, yogfurt, some earthy elements and twang. Bready and dry straw malts taper behind, showing firm acidity from front to back that is tantalizing and flowing. Lemony life goes well with some acidic jabs, faint green apple and taryt grape. A touch of body but largely this one is a lemony lactic life, potent but not overwhelming, this summery Berliner isn’t just an acid bomb. A touch of body, some graininess without letting up and losing that lemony focus. Finish is dry, twangy and tart/sour. A nice one with good flow, potency and a touch of body to keep it honest. Tasty. Mellow nose but a lovely flavor and flow here, a top shelf base Berliner I think.

ContemplateBeer (1755) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 17, 2015
On tap at Grove location. Aroma: Light pils-type grain with also very light wheat; not much in terms of wheat tartness; Lemon is subtle. A lighter nose all around. Appearance: Fairly still yellow pour with a foamy white head that fades into a patchy ring. Flavor: Moderately tart and lemony throughout; simple; the finish is more abrupt and dried out. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, very soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: I probably liked this more than my score would suggest; more than anything, I would’ve liked a bit more from the nose, and maybe a little lighter body.

MichaelAwesome (5729) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2015
Gut, die Tiefe und Fülle eines klassischen Lambics oder Geuze ist mit solch einem Bierchen kaum zu erreichen, aber die Frische, die Säure und die milde Fruchtigkeit punkten hier auf ganzer Linie. Selbst ohne einen wirklichen Charakter dahinter verlangt dieses Piwo nach mehr von sich selber. Klasse.

McTapps (5734) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle from trade with Culchiem - many thanks! The beer has got a hazy yellow-golden colour with an airy head and medium body. Aroma of acid, light hops and citric. Taste of mild hops, light wheat, citric, light amlt, flowers and mild acid. Very thin bodied and light textured - feels like summer. Good one.

Fisler (213) - Bamberg, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2015
Golden trüb im Glas, kein Schaum. In der Nase schon recht sauer, Weintraube. Im Trunk sauer, aber angenehm, Weizen, matter, immenoch saurer Abgang, leicht süß, dann bitter. Kribbelt, wärmt, das ist ein gutes Bier.
