Huge thanks to yourefragile for sharing this growler. Served in a cervoise. The nose is fairly tart with a bit of wheat in the background, but mostly sourness and light stone fruits. Flavor is similar. Its quite tart, and unfortunately doesnt have much dry wheat character like a great Berliner. Instead, its more of an American Wild, though a good one at that.

Draft at Plan 9. Pours clear bright gold with no head. Tastes like tart lemon, yeast, pear, acidic, and cracker malt. Ohh body and low carbonation. Smells like yeast, cracker malt, apple cider vinegar, and tart citrus.

That is seriously tart. The sourness is in every sip of this beer, with an even more intense finsih. This might be the most intense sour beer Ive had from start to finish, yet it keeps me sipping.

jgb9348 (6046) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Ridiculously dark, brown coloured body with a glow of deep amber, some orange haze at the bottom, and absolutely no head at all. Aroma of sour apples, sour grapes, yeast, funk, grass and a bit of pure sour candy - nice. Light-bodied; Mouth-puckering sour lemon, apple and citrus flavours at first with a deep yeast and floral finish with a nice kick of apples and caster sugar near the end. Aftertaste is all about the sourness with not much malt, hardly any body, not much sweetness and absolutely no hops, the only thing that really sticks out is the yeast element and a ton of sour flavours - which is perfectly alright! Overall, a great beer with a lot of qualities that make the style so nice, with some that are unique (the look) make this a very nice beer to sample and oh so easy to drink. I sampled this sixteen ounce pour on draught at Whole Foods in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia on 19-January-2017 for US$4,00 sampled at the end of my driveway!

Palme (4484) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2016
On tap @ Rattle N Hum as "Aged Tartare". This is a cloudy looking almost straw golden colored one with a small quickly fading white little head. Smells really good and inviting. Sourness from slammed green and yellow berries. Theres traces of wood, some sweetness also here. Raspberries? Smells really nice this. Oh, this is lemonic and drinkable as heck! Its mild oily in the mouth and its below average on the carbonation. Superbly refreshing and really lightdrinkable! Sour gooseberries and white currants lingering in the tail. Nice! 21.06.2015

Tap at gravity. Pale golden with one finger head. Strong vinegar, very tart and acidic. Lemony. Not often I say this but this is too sour.
