4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A nice extra from Koelschtrinker...Thanks!
Pours a pale yellow with a nice white head...some haze which grows as the beer is agitated. Smells sour lemony, lactic - overall it is nice and fairly subtle
The taste is more pronounced, quite acidic with a lot of tart lemon flavor. The taste is really wonderful, some salt mixed in on the aftertaste. Simple acidic and clean...really great.
The carbonation initially is very active and a bit course but as it sits it smooths right out and becomes rather smooth and elegant.
Overall, a very impressive beer that I will seek out.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear body with a white frothy head - fastly diminishing. Sour aroma of plums, vinegar, barnyard, ... Heavily sour flavour. Very nice and well balanced. Maybe somewhat too acetic.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"Wollnitzer Weiss Vollbier" from 2011 (if I can read my writing correctly) thanks to GRG1313. Been reading about this style (Lichtenhainer) on Ron Pattinson’s blog. Pours with a hazy yellow body with a white head. Aromas are tart, lemon juice, a bit of a rubbery and smokey chlorophenol, lightly grainy. Flavors are tart, mildly rubbery and smokey. Lots of puckering lactic acid. More sour than I was expecting. Lively bubbles, bone dry. Quite interesting and good.

(Bottle) Pours yellow with green hints. The aroma is dry and acidic with notes of vinegar, tart apples and lime. The flavour is very dry and acidic with notes of vinegar, mould, fresh wood and citrus/lemon acid. The mouthfeel is tart yet soft. Light bodied.

Thank you Kolschtrinker! Please standby for a real rating. I’m actually enjoying the company of other beer enthusiasts instead of being a non-social "I must rate this right now!!!"

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A fitting rating #3500. I’ve wanted to try this forever. The pour is a pale yellow color with a small white head. The nose is lemon and lemon zest with a mild sweetness and just a hint of smoke. The flavor is somewhat light, but still has a lot going on. Good tartness and lactic acidity as you would expect with a very subtle smoke flavor. Plenty of wheat and bread notes give it a mild sweetness. Light bodied with medium to high carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Säuerlich und hefig im Geruch. Ziemlich saurer Start. Im Mittel hefig-aromatisch, nicht ohne Qualitäten. Abschließend sauer und trocken.
Recht eigen, weiß aber zu gefallen wenn man sich daran gewöhnt hat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (thanks B.U., tasted at 2nd CS/ES beerevening). Hazy yellowish golden colour with a mediumsized white creamy/foamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is bananas, wheat, mild spices, some sourness as well as mild earthy notes. Flavour is rather similar along with some yeastyness and spicyness. Pleasant.

Bottle courtesy of Bierkrug, thank you sir! Tasted while looking at the Zugspitz, which probably raises the appearance by a point or so, Cloudy pale orange, no head or lacing. Aroma of limoncello. Taste is sour, light, fresh grapefruit, apple skins. Very nice.
