EithCubes (5435) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Here we have the world’s last remaining commercial Lichtenhainer (should we just call it a Wöllnitzer at this point?), and in brief, it’s a mild Berliner Weisse. Tap in Wöllnitz at the Talschänke after a bit of a trek on a warm summer day. Hazy bright banana-yellow with a rocky bright white head. Lightly sour, wheaten nose, taste is similar, light and wheaty with a touch of spice and some light apple juice. The sourness is subtle to the point that many laymen would not mention unless prompted. Medium body. Not out-of-this world, but clean and super, super refreshing (tasted like 2.5-3%, though the bottles for takeaway had it at 4% even). After a while, really started to pick out the lemon and black currant notes, clear as Skittles day. Solid.

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle sample @ 2nd RBBSG, August 11th 2012. Courtesy of Thirstybird. Dorée claire, col blanc fin. Arôme est poussiéreux, fruité présentant ce léger côté sour et fruité. Palais est léger facile à boire sans être trop complexe, note de sour/aigre rappelant un cidre léger/pomme, retrouve bien le style Berliner. Phase initiale présente une certaine effervescence qui accompagne toute la dégustation. Un bel exemple du style.

Sampled at RBBSG. Clear yellow to golden color, small white lacing on top. Smells like feet, sweaty, not nice. Taste is mainly green apple, resembles a cider. Low body, low carbo.

Brandman (2626) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2012
Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has interesting mix of lactic acid, salt, bread, wheat and fresh apples. Very nice sourness and really good balance with the wheaty sweetness. I liked this a lot. Bit thin, but the bottle I had had 2,5 abv printed on it.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 29, 2012
Tolles alt aussehendes Etikett. Sehr säuerlich und Citrus-Essigartig. Auch im Nachgeschmack recht lange säuerlich, erinnert mich ein bisschen an Cidre (Apfelwein). Fazit: Auf jeden fall etwas besonderes, ich finde aber es sollte anders heißen, denn es ähnelt kaum einem normalen Weißbier. Interessante Erfahrung lohnt sich! Test vom 8.2.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,12,10,11,13,11 - 11,00
