33cl bottle from tony’s wines. completely opaque golden orange in the glass. Really cool looking beer. Nose is heavy on lime and orange zest with wheaty yeast undertones. Flavor is first citric and tangy with some wild berry flavor, then finishes with the slight saltiness and a really nice tart, sour yeast.

I had this on tap in Leipzig and it was so good. Fruity with a tinge of salt then a rush of sour. This is a lovely beer that suffers a little in bottles. noompa (130) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Flip-top bottle (2009) in a shaker; wheaty w/ citrus and the coriander pretty prominent; salt adds a nice touch; mildly spicy and very refreshing; wish I could try more in the style. jrob21 (3663) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Opaque bright yellow color with a nice white head. On tap at the brickstore. Spicey is right. The coriander here is very apparent with some lemon citrus working in the background. Decent wheat malt profile makes this one pretty full bodied. Nice for this time of year and the 95 degrees it is today. theisti (4114) - Kansas, USA - JUN 12, 2009
11.2 fl oz bottle purchased at Beertopia in Omaha, Nebraska. Pour is clear light golden and a two inch white head. There is hardly any visible carbonation, though what is there consistently bubbles straight to the top of the glass. Aroma of soft floral lemon and lime, slightly sweet and citric and some gentle bread aroma behind that. Really delicate and engaging nose. Taste is initially quite big on the lime then, the lemon citric sweetness. This is not as tart as the nose would have suggested, though does still have a nice bright presence. The soft bready malt is in there too, though is well beneath the citrus fruit and takes on a nice saltiness. The floral element of the nose is present in the taste, and gives it nice depth of flavor, as well as rounds out and smoothes out the lemon and lime. the taste has more of a yeastiness to it. Palate is thin medium, light carbonation with a brief clean finish (slight salt). Really drinkable, and was great with food.

Had a chance to sample this at 2 Amy’s in Washington D.C. Pours a slightly cloudy, straw, yellow, gold with a frothy, active, lacing white head. Very aromatic, smelled like a bouquet of flowers with some strong orange peel, coriander and slight sour aromas. Flavor was where this takes a wrong turn. Super sweet, apples, candied oranges, flowers, honey. Finish is slightly watery and with high carbonation. In a word; weird. I think I was expecting a Geuze and got something else. I have no idea where the sea salt went nor did I pick up any lactic qualities. Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Bottle, with Alaskanwarrn. Pale straw, clean white bubbles. Dill weed nose, leather. Fresh sweet bread, light spice, briny finish. Refreshing, kind of fun. Was really hoping there would be a bit more assertive acidity. illidurit (2327) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 18, 2009
330 mL bottle poured into a pint glass. Opaque light-gold color with chunks of yeast floating around. Small, fizzy white head. Aroma is briny and tart with lemons, wheat, and bruised crabapple. Flavor is muted and refreshing. Rather wheaty with a light citric tartness, a whisper of spiced apple cider, and aspiriny coriander reminiscent of Hoegaarden. Watery and drinkable.
