Boutip (6097) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle: Poured a pale beige color ale with a medium foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of tart and fruity notes. Taste is mix of tart notes with some slightly weird flavours and some vinegary notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Slightly off-balance and a bit too vinegary for my taste but still enjoyable overall.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 6, 2016
750mL shared at Woodshop 10. Low haze straw pour. Beautiful peaches and cream aroma, some white peach. Taste is light-bodied, white peach comes through, lemon acid is not over the top. Clean profile for this style with little funkiness. Some sweet white grape for balance. Very nice.

joeneugs (6116) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 30, 2016
On tap at the Trappist. Been waiting a while to get the chance to try this and I wasnt disappointed. It pours a super pale yellow color with a nice, lasting white head. The aroma is very pleasant with lemon, apricots, light orchard fruit and wheaty funk. The flavor is almost perfect. Great apricot and lemon tartness. Super refreshing with soft, fresh hewn wheat. It has a lightly fluffy mouthfeel despite the low gravity. Fine bubbled carbonation. A real masterpiece.

dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a faint orange glow. Fizzy head fades within seconds. Aroma is incredibly fruity and nuanced, with grapefruit juice, tamarind, orange peel, lemon juice, lime, grain, minerals, light spice. Taste is lemon and grain of course but with tons of juicy grapefruit, faint red berries, lime zest, pineapple, and long sour grapefruit/lemon finish. Some oaky tannins. Fascinating beer that I liked much more than expected, with fruity nuances that most Berliners lack, and which places it almost more in the saison/sour saison category for me. Great stuff.
