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 (50 cl) from Bierkompass.de. Shady pale golden with a greenish tinge. Strong cidery and lactic aroma with green apples and some grapefruit. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Dry with strong acidity. A good thirst-quencher.

Bottle (50 cl), thanks larsniclas. Hazy golden, low head. Sour and funky with some vinager notes. A bit too sharply sour for my liking.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 50cl. It pours a lactic golden beer with a quick diminishing fizzy white head. The aroma is reminiscent of dinosaur slime, horse blanket, faint plastic and lemon peel. Nice sourness. Remarkably leathery with hints of rubber and faint smoke. Delicate prickling palate. There is a nice bite to this beer. Dinosaur slime in the finish which is dry. Plenty of character. I really enjoyed this beer.
