Pity that it was recomended to me as sour beer, but the only sour aspect is aroma - it kinda reminds Belgian beers - toilety, a bit like fermented/salted cucumbers, a bit brettanomyces, funky barnyard. Flavor is totally ruined like unbalanced mix of everything, sweetish although overall with hints of juniper and gingery savoury. I was not able to drink whole bottle, too messy flavor. Poured light brown, unclear with not much foam.

markoijelena (2703) - Belgrade, SERBIA - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle 0.5l at home Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 27.09.2016. Pour it hazy orange color with medium white head. Aroma sweet fruity, syrup kind. Taste starts wit light wheat, juniper berries on the back, syrupy in the middle, nice pinch of sourness at the end, nice balanced, good expirement, medium body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish.

JPDIPSO (5796) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Cloudy amber color with specks of fish food. Has to work to pour a small diminishing off-white head on this one. Scents of wheat, light apple, pineapple and mild yeast. First sip was quite startling. Quite sweet. Light fruit and bananas. Mild citrus and hint of apple cider vinegar. Dull feel. This might have been really good in 1831 or perhaps it was lost for a reason.

DutchMark (369) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2016
Unusual. Yellow with a small head and low carbonation. A bit sweet with a thin body. Flavor is of minerals, something medicinal, yeast and brettanomyces. Not bad, unusual but also not very pleasant. Some experiments should be done once.....

minutemat (4628) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2016
500ml bottle, from trade with Erzengel. Many thanks! Two years out of date. Pours clear amber, very thin white head. Aroma is medicinal, ginger, herbal. Taste is oily, fairly thin, medicinal and lacking carbonation. Kinda tastes how an old beer from this time might have been like. But not one I want to return to.

Babyfood banana and lemon nose. Clear amber, thin head. Lemon and stewed apple flavor, subtle banana and dank basement notes. Light body, moderate carbonation. Different.

ZodiacM (902) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2016
Poured from the Bottle. Dark yellow beer. Aroma is medicinal banana. Taste is also medicinal banana. So not a great weisse, taste is not what I like. It’s drinkable, but not great.

Muito boa esta cerva! Vale a degustação ! Forte, sabor marcante! O teor alcoólico poderia ser um pouco maior!

beer-yum (1414) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 21, 2016
Restrained ginger aroma in a light yellow gold pour. Unusual/unique flavour profile with hints of ginger and juniper. Finish is surprisingly watery. Not really to my taste - but an interesting brew nonetheless.
