DrnkMcDermott (3136) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2003 33 cL bottle. I can't say I liked what I found. I thought perhaps this bottle had gone south as it was freshness dated for 4/02, but I see by the description that the style is exactly as I experienced. Thin head dwindles to nothing over a pale yellow beer. Spritzy, with a very sour lemonade and grapefruit taste. Sourness overcomes any malts or hop impression. It was worth it to experience the style, but this won't become one of my favorites. I have a second bottle that I'll try with a syrup (or maybe a peach schnapps or Frango liquer?).
Re-sampled, Nov. 15, '03. This time I was prepared with a bottle of raspberry flavoring syrup. Just a little splash made it nice and smooth. Though pinkish, of course, the tartness remaining gave it an edge over most raspberry beers. Probably might even be well matched with a 7-up.

Barwa słomkowa, zamglone, piana biała, dość obfita, umiarkowanie trwała. W aromacie kiszonka, nieco kanalizy, ale do przejścia. W smaku wytrawne, kwaśność umiarkowana z plusem. Czuć lakto, kiszonkę, cierpkość, pszenny charakter. Ciało i wysycenie w normie, świetna pijalność. Klasyka, aromat nieco poprawić i będzie świetnie.

Z wyglądu jasne, nieklarowne. Piana szybko opada. Zapach szampana. W smaku bardzo kwaśne i cierpkie, mające jednak w sobie coś, że chce się pić dalej.

Grumpelmies (364) - GERMANY - OCT 20, 2017
Bottle. Clear light golden/yellow coloured. Big foamy head. Aroma is sour, lactic and acidic. Taste is wheats and sour fruits. Sweet and tart. Strong carbonation. Sparkling and refreshing. It's just a nice low abv refreshment for those special occasions (like coming off the waterslide and you've run out of lemonade). Goes well with woodruff syrup.

Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2017
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 (3734) - 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 (277) - 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.
