Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Fairly clear straw gold with a small head and lots of carbonation. Strong and acidic yeast in the nose with some lemon citrus there. Damp hay/straw there as well. The flavor is fairly spicy with a sweeter version of the lemon citrus coming out. The yeast and straw notes are there as well. Not as strong as the nose. Nice and light mouthfeel. Finishes off with a touch of spicy citrus.

Mortlach (2490) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 23, 2017
Bottle shared @Brasserie 4:20 (Rome). Giallo paglierino, torbida, opalescente, schiuma bianca media. Al naso sentori di frumento, stalla, cantina, spezie (coriandolo). In bocca è morbida, piacevolmente dolcina all'attacco con acidulo finale, rinfrescante, leggermente pepata. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione medio-leggera. Che buona!

Count011 (1) - Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2017 does not count
Bottled on 11-26-2012 opened on 9-20-2017. Old ass bottle, but what the hell. Looks and smells like a cider, cloudy, very foamy. Foam is soapy in appearance, not lacing like a higher alcohol beer. Tastes very white, flavor is good, aftertaste is a little disappointing. I thought it was a cider... it would have been cooler if it was.

HeadyDE (868) - Delaware, USA - AUG 16, 2017
Draft offering, surprising find, aroma is kind of blase with some tartness, lemon rind, lip balm, light bodied, taste follows suit with some flowery elements, some fatness, ok beer I suppose..

3.5
melush (4414) - SPAIN - JUL 11, 2017
35,5cl Bottle @ LaBIRRAtorium, Madrid, Spain. Hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is wheat, citrus, slightly yeasty. Taste is wheat, citrus, hints of fruits, slightly sour. Medium body, average to soft carbonation.

Hopper8 (228) - Holland, Michigan, USA - JUL 8, 2017
For whatever reason I wasn’t getting the tartness I normally get from a Jolly Pumpkin beer, I suspect something was off with my particular brew. The corriander and orange peel really shone in this brew and it was nice, but it wasn’t soured like a normal Jolly Pumpkin beer. I’ll have to try again, but man I was still really really into it, and that’s crazy to me.

3.3
commonmac (1311) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2017
Tap in Ann Arbor with GLBTQ crew. Hoegaarden style glass. Hazy, unfiltered appearance. White head. Nose is refreshingly bright and tart with orange characteristics. Taste is tart with a lean towards a sour citrus quality. Soft spice undertone helps to quell the impact of citrus rind. Grassy qualities. A strong representation of a witbier especially those in the sour end of the spectrum.

3.9
Bacchus66 (877) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2017
From tap. Hazy gold, foamy white head that quickly devolved to a thin collar. Light funk, wheat on the nose. Medium sour flavors, lemon, grass. Dry spritzy mouthfeel. Dry mostly grassy finish. Refreshing

3.6
Taboada (1423) - Compostela (Galiza), - MAY 30, 2017
Bottle sample. Tasted on the 12/05/2017 at MBCC (Copenhagen). Cloudy yellow colour with a thin smooth white head. Aroma of yeast, lemon and other citrics, grass and cereal. Taste is slightly sour and citric. Refreshing and easy to drink. Next one please!

3.5
willisread (3544) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2017
Tap at J’s. Pours a clearish gold with a finger of foam that lingers. Light pear and yeast nose. Soft carbonation, lemon and a lingering tartness on the finish. Smooth with a touch of limeade on the end. Quite nice.
