On tap at Hoppy Corner Paris. Fairly cloudy with a surprising amount of floral/fruity notes and bit of a lingering oily bitterness on the palette. Was expecting something lighter, cleaner, more refreshing. Not to my taste. Rubin77 (2876) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 16, 2015

(draught) hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of cactus juice, powdered sugar and heavy pear, with a light hint of banana and some pepper. flavour is very heavy on the kidney beans and raw potatoes, a total dimethyl sulfide bomb, with a hint of herbal hops in the light-bitter finish. light- to medium-bodied with soft carbonation. auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2014
On tap at Churchkey - Washington, DC. Crisp, herbal aroma, green, grassy and like steeped straw or silver needle white tea. Flavors capture me right away, soft dry minerals, granite and slate. Towards the end, it hits hard with bitterness, but after working through a sample (and later a full pint), it smooths down and integrates nicely. It has structure, but I would still call it dry. Lovely, light-hearted, clean and exactly what I always wish I could drink. I’m sure this is far from the best classic, unfiltered example of the style, but it’s what I hoped it could be.
