Bottle courtesy of Thirstybird and very kindly shared with a few Rbeerians at Merton Beer Festival, Saturday 27th February 2016, cheers Rian This pours light lemony pale gold with a white head that swiftly subsided, a slight haze. I know from a big discussion on one of the Forums that some folk were suggesting you cannot detect sour on the nose as it is a flavour indicator, well I say bollocks coz I get a sourness on the nose here it is a fruity, citrussy lighter variant of the vinegar sournessy that sees the nostrils flare and you recoil a touch, it is clean, refreshing and spritzy sourness, and as this is the only way I can describe it this is what I will stick with. These characteristics transfer seamlessly into the flavour department, bit funky also, really refreshing, tart, tangy, a good workout for the tastebuds and a good inbetweener and palate cleanser, more suited for a summers day but I like it regardless.

Bottle from Thirstybird. Thanks Rian. Clear very pale gold. Sour lemon aroma with a touch of woody funk. Yes some good lemon .good character. But fizzy. Good. Tasty Lemon Sour And Some juiciness DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Aroma - chardonnay like vinous nature
Appearance - body is a clean light yellow. Head is white and about 1/2" and fades fast.
Taste - tart with a blend of straw, some peach, lime, and champagne yeast.
Palate - body is medium, texture is dry and slightly vinous, the carbonation is lively, the finish is mega tart it engulfs the upper front gums with pure pucker. Truly unique!

Bottle from Gulating Strømmen enjoyed at hometnkw01 (1753) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Pale yellow, big white head. Smell of yoghurt, lemon, light malts. Light sweet, tart lemon, medium sour, lactic acids, light malts, quite refreshing. Well balanced up
Bottle. Very lightly colored. Almost like clear dishwater and suds like dishwater. Aroma is kind of lemony. Taste is like unsweetened green apples. But it’s still good. jake65 (3626) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle: Clear light gold color, lots of bubbles and a short lived white head. The nose is fresh and sweet; it smells a bit like sparkling cider. The taste is surprisingly sour up front, a little bit of green apple, and a sour dry finish. There is some dainty fruit in there, but really quite sour. Good think it was 3% abv cause it went down quick. Inbreak (5804) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2015

Tiny shortlasting head, very light color. Aroma is mild sour-ish, unripe berries, soda powder, minerals, citrus, hay, raw rhubarb, citrus acid. Taste is slightly sour-ish dry, soda powder, hay, sorrel, citrus acid, grass, unripe berries. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and watery mouthfeel. Nice enough, very clean and easy drinking.
Pours a cloudy, dark golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind.
Slightly must aroma with a decent balance of musty funk, sweet citrus and bready yeast. Smells a bit tame for the style with faint lactic funk countered by citrus peel, lemon juice, zesty spice, pale malt and sourdough bread.
Medium bodied and thankfully more interesting than the aroma suggests with a nice balance of funk and citric acidity. It’s still light and pretty tame for the style but you can at least pick up the wheat beer characteristics. Only slightly tart with more of a lactic presence than expected countered by sweet citrus, bready yeast and mild spicy. Faint peppery clove flavor countered by hints of lemon juice and sourdough bread. Not too exciting but well balance, clean, crisp and refreshing.
