330 mL bottle at a restaurant in Berlin. Light yellow color with a 1-finger white head. Lightly estery aroma. Flavor was lightly sour with just enough wheat malt backbone to keep it enjoyable for me. Light on the palate and refreshing.

I do like the predominant sour flavor, which has otherwise disappeared from the German beer landscape. The famous mixers pink and green are also good for their sweet and sour taste, but I definitely shine the spotlight on this clearly one-dimensional, sour speciality. Thumps up!

Po prostu klasyka. Kwas kwas i lekko pszenny charakter. Bardzo przyjemne piwo i ikona stylu

PotjeBier (3506) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2017
Bottle with a schuss of himbeer, at Alt Berliner Biersalon, Ku’damm. Pinkish red color with a big pink head. Aroma’s: sourish, wheaty, lactic, rasoberry. Retronasal it’s sour, sweet, raspberry, lactic. Flavor is light moderate sour ’n’ sweet, fruity. Gets sweeter as the glass gets emptier, due to concentration of syrup at the bottom. Left the last bit for what it was. Nice fruity and refreshing Summer beer.

Dzoshu (262) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 10, 2017
Kolor: Słomka, klarowne. Piana: Bardzo obfita, gęsta, kremowa, długo się utrzymuje. Zapach: Zboże, kwasek cytrynowy, lekkie nutki chmielowe. Smak: Wysoka kwaśność, zbożowy charakter. Goryczka niska. Lekkie ściąganie na finiszu. Wysycenie: Wysokie, OK. Opakowanie: Fajna etykieta, niedokładny skład, firmowy kapsel. Uwagi: Warka 07.18 Lekkie, kwaśne. Może nie złożone ale na pewno orzeźwiające i bardzo pijalne.

Achet�e au Rewe. Bi�re tr�s claire au nez plut�t fade. La bouche est tr�s acide et p�tillante. Une premi�re pour moi dans ce style. Pas trop mal.

Slomkowej barwy, klarowne. Piana dosyc szybko opada. Aromat slodowy, winny, czuc troche jablek i cytrusy. W smaku kwasne, ale nie nachalnie. Ogólnie jest lekkie i orzezwiajace.

Very pale, hazy beer with big, but quickly disappearing white head. In aroma mostly lactic acid with some basement aromas and notes similar to unripe blackberries and cheese. Very tart, notes of wheat in aftertaste. Same as in aroma - unripe berries are present. Astringent with nice amount of acidity. Highly carbonated. Not as watery as may be expected from so low ABV beer. Really nice for hot summer days. Would be much better with cleaner lactic acid taste.

BrewGuide32 (142) - Szczecin, POLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Jasnozłote, równomiernie opalizujące piwo. Piana biała, drobna, niewielkich rozmiarów, pozostaje na powierzchni piwa pod postacią krążka. Nie chcę za bardzo pozostawiać lacingu. W aromacie przeważa słodowa podstawa piwa, pachnie trochę jak owsianka albo owsiane otręby. Dalej wkomponowuje się delikatna kwaśność, wchodząca w kwasek cytrynowy, a do tego można poczuć jeszcze kwaśny agrest i niedojrzałe winogrona. W smaku jest umiarkowanie kwaśne(jak dla mnie mogłoby być bardziej kwaśne). Następnie dochodzą skojarzenia z kwaskiem cytrynowym, kwaśnymi niedojrzałym owocami jak agrest, winogrono, na samym końcu wysuwa się słodowa podstawa, tutaj też kojarząca się z owsianymi otrębami. Finisz pozostaje w tonie kwaskowo-cytrynowym. Całość jest bardzo pijalna, przyjemna w picu, świetnie orzeźwia i gasi pragnienie, dobry berliner weisse na letnie gorące popołudnia.

ozzatoadisback (190) - ITALY - MAY 18, 2017
Trasparent pale golden (hazy on second pour), loads of bubbles. Good and quite dense white head, ok retention and some lacing. Aroma is pretty intense but can be described quite easily as citric/juicy (lemon juice), maybe with a soapy hint. Taste is semi sweet with a wheat malts base (white bread). Intense acidity, both citric (with lemon notes) and lactic (yogurt). Sour citric aftertaste. Very light bodied with medium to high carbonation, goes down easy. Overall this is an ok, quite refreshing beer, but it definitely lacks complexity (it’s pretty much just lemonish sourness).
