j12601 (11573) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2009
On tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a lightly milky yellow with a thin white head. Very faint mustard, light acid, and a hint of sourness. Creamy mouthfeel due to the ample carbonation. Light straw and a slightly chalky acid. Really missing the sourness that makes this style stand out, but definitely something drinkable. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2009
On Tap at the Great Divide Brewing Company, Denver 24/09/2009
Fruity aroma. Light golden coloured and very hazy in appearance. Fruity and smooth on the palate with a crisp dry and creamy malt finish. Dogbrick (13006) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Sample at the Great Divide Tap House in Denver. The beer is a hazy golden color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of pale malt, citrus and mild hops. Medium, clean body with flavors of earthy malt, citrus and wheat. The finish is short and malty with a vaguely fruity wheat aftertaste. Just average overall. dnstone (3404) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Sour aroma. Pale gold with whispy white head. Not what I expected; dull all around and not sour though it does have a slight lemon note. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - NOV 9, 2009
On draft at the brewery during GABF week 2009. Citric, lightly tart, wheat aroma, some lemon and pleasant yeast tones along with very mild sweetness. Appropriately pale, cloudy yellow color, head is fine and uneven. Flavor is gently sweet and tart, more clean lemon coming through, faint herbal notes in the background and a gentle wheat malt presence throughout. Finishes dry and very mildly bitter. Palate is thin with low-moderate effervescence, body is light. Not as acidic or tart as the classic Old World examples, but certainly passable and very quenching.

Tap at the brewery - hazy gold, faint head - effervescent, lively in the mouth - a bit of lacto that barely presents as tartness, let alone tanginess/acidity/sourness - some oaky character - a touch of phenolics - citrus - it’s actually quite light and refreshing, but it lacks the punch and complexity of some of the better examples - still, if you’re looking for a refreshing beer, you can’t really go wrong with this. 3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2009
draft at the brewery. hazed banana cream colored body, zero head. calcium/vitamin chalky nose of mild/creamy lactobacillus and mild lemon zest. prickly carbonation, moderate lactic acid levels, hints of wheat/banana/clove. resembles sour citrus soda at times. finishes mild and thin. gets obliterated and completely neutralized when paired with cheese.

Tap at GD during GABF weekend. Pours a hazy straight yellow gold with moderate carbonation and a nice white head. Aroma is basic wheaty doughy notes, some citrus and floral notes, light lemon but nothing indicatng lots of sour or funk. Flavor verifies this as there is a severe lack of acidity- too young perhaps- still nothing wrong- no acetaldehyde or DMS or isovaleric which all pop up in other breweries attempts at the style- just straight pils and wheat malts, make it easy drinking, but nothing special here- perhaps needs more time with lacto at high temps to bring out acidity? craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2009

On tap @ Great Divide. Pours a hazy straw yellow. Nose is semi sweet malt, bread, mild mild acid, hints of toast. Flavor is watery, not very much tartness, mild sourness, wheat, very little lactic acid. Needs more time fermenting. Watery. Not nearly enough clean sourness.
