Transparent pale yellow color. The flavor is dominated by lemon tartness. There are some notes of granny smith apples for extra sourness and a very mild, sweet flavor. Any malts, hops or wheat are pretty much inconsequential. Light-bodied. I like this beer quite a bit, it isn’t the most complex, but it has a very distinctive sour flavor.

pineypower (2523) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours out a pale yellowish/golden color with a small white head and a lot of carbonation. Aroma is of band aid, funk, some tart/sour lemons and a touch of charred grain. Taste is of some burnt grain, toast, funky sour lemons, light basement, a strange almost meaty earth note that I can’t place and some sour lemons in there also. eh.....

Buongiorgio00 (779) - - SEP 20, 2014
Un’ottima berliner weisse interpretata da Wild Beer come una cascata di note acido-citriche e una freschezza genuina e intrigante; leggera e morbida, ideale per iniziare una serata brassicola.

Garrold (1466) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy, pearlescent straw type colour. Thick, lasting head of tight, white bubbles. Handsome. Aroma of just beginning to ferment apple juice. Lots of the lactic thing. Quite grainy. Taste is very dry, and lactic tart. Clean, sharp, crisp palate. There’s a hint of sweetness in there, that fits really well. Crisp, dry finish. Very nice.

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 31, 2014
[keg, the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Pours a translucent lemon yellow, with a large, puffy white head. Zappy, fresh nose mixed with a dry earthyness. On the taste, lots of apple notes, funky and tart streaks running through, before a dry, earthy finish that leads to a truly sour aftertaste. Runs through the gearbox really nicely [30082014]
