Found in notes from the B.United open house ! Poured from a tanker truck at the importers open house. Hazy yellow body, some traces of green potato mingles with round cereal grain and tart lacto character. The palate is bright and spritzy with lots of carbonation and a nice mix of tart lemon yogurt, earthy potato hints and lingering flavors that are hard to describe. Overall a nice idea and the potato does add some interesting mouthfeel but the flavor add to much weirdness for me to love it.

The head is unrobust, the body light and cloudy. It smells sour, aromatic. The taste is very sour and aromatic, potatoes, natural, refreshing.

Draft at Dutchs (06/2013). Pours a cloudy light yellow color with a large bubbly white head that doesnt last. The aroma had hints of potato and wheat malt with a decent amount of lemony citrus and mild acidity. The flavor opens very tart lemon citrus and then disappears to a weak pale malt, dry potato finish. Strange beer.

On tap at the Trappist. Aroma is rather bland but there is some faint citrus and potato. Pours a cloudy, very pale yellow with a thin white head that lingers slightly on the edges. No lashing out legs. Flavor had a light potato and wheat flavor with medium citric character. Upfront the acidity is light but its really strong in the finish. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation. Low acidic astringency in the finish with low alcohol warmth. Overall a fairly nice Berliner but it could use some Brett to add a level of complexity. There really isnt much flavor to this one.

murky straw, wispy oil white head. Nose is nearly absent, faintly earthy hay, lemon. Biting lemon juice flavor, watery and ultra thin, lightly stinging in chest. Nothing else.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma has vegetables and actual kartoffel, aspergus. Pretty bad. Flavour has big sourness with a nasty vegatable sidenote. Really not my thing.

The aroma is sweatsock, sour, lemon. The appearance is hazy light yellow, virtually no head. The flavor is sour, lemon, cereal grains. The finish is sour lemon. Medium in body. OK, if a bit boring.

50cl bottle pours a hazy, weak yellow. Nose is starchy, a little taro root, some straw, lemon, a little feet, a little earthy. Flavor is lightly tart, some lotus, taro root, lemon, light kumquat. Dr finish.
