(last serving from the keg at Mikkeller & Friends) I don’t think I ever tried this style before so I’m not exactly sure what to expect but here goes: The lactobacillus is definitely present in the aroma. It’s tart in a juicy, cidery and stringent fashion. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with no head or regeneration. Oily texture, flat and a dry, tart finish. Flavour largely follows the nose being predominantly tart but in quite a drinkable way. Tart but not mouthpuckeringly so. I appreciate the historical aspects of this style but for the taste I think I’d prefer apple cider. pentaz (1264) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2013
Draught. Pours unclear pale yellow with virtually no head. Aroma is apple, cider, wheat, acidic lemon and lactic. Taste is light+ sweet and medium tart. Body is light+, texture is thin, carbonation is soft. Finishes tart and quite dry. Refreshing and quite tart. finol (3465) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2012

Sour Lambic aroma. Fizzy. Soda sweetness but mostly sourness in flavour. Sprite and Lambic put together. Very nice for a 3% brew.

Half-pint at The Farmhouse Tap & Grill, pours a cloudy lemony yellow with almost no head – just a few bubbles. Nose is quite lemony tart, with a tad of sweetness. Flavour is very tart, even for a Berliner, with loads of lemony tang, cut down by noticeable sugar content that doesn’t so much affect the flavour, but rather the mouthfeel – leaves a sugary residue on the teeth, making this low drinkability. Would prefer this to be dryer. Decent effort. HogTownHarry (7064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
August 19, 2012 - draught at King William IV Witterfest. Looks like pale grapefruit juice - murky, pale yellow, not much head. Smells delicately sour ... mild grain, a little dry grass - mostly funky lemon. Taste follows - like sour lemonade with wheat germ, but I like it, love it, really. Big, big body on it, almost like syrup, quite acidic - quite lively and stinging on the palate, finishes very dry indeed - bitter and lemony, wheat on the top of the palate. Solid.
