UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson! Pours a fairly hazy, golden yellow appearance with a diminishing white head. Lemony, light veggie, straw, light creamed corn, a bit herbal aroma. Uh oh. Tangy, light to moderate DMS, herbal/straw, somewhat chewy malty flavor with a fairly dry finish. Off but not off in a really horrible way- maybe they can clean this up. Update: tried on tap at Urban Chestnut and the DMS is still there. Goddammit, I really wanted this to be good. olio (10688) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015
50 cl bottle. BBE 22.01.2016.MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2015
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Grassy aroma, pale malts, some mild fruity notes and subtle hops. Grassy and malty flavor, some subtle grain notes, hay and earth. Quite boring.
(bottle) Hazy, pale golden colour with a big and blond foamy head. Yeasty, malty, slightly biscuity and doughy aroma with herbal and subtle fruity hops. Mildly bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Soft malty base with hints of biscuit, white bread, backed by a mildly herbal-spicy hoppy touch; dry-ish mildly malty and slightly hop bitter finish with doughy and subtle grainy spots. Likeable. 27.IV.15 gyllenbock (10027) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2016
Can at Revolution.
Golden with a white head. On the sweet side with grain, grass, bread and some light hops. Drinkable but nothing special.

Taster at Upland Sourfest. From a bottle. Clear golden color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots of lace. Wow. Awesome clean bready aroma, very satisfying. Full-bodied, yet refreshing. Awesome change of pace from the 100 sours today. Good mild bitter, moderate sweet. Badass Zwickel. Want to session this.

Light butter and some lightly candied barley malt. Hazy golden pour with good head and lacing. Smooth clean finish. Easy drinking. Tap at Churchkey. arminjewell (9727) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, biscuit, nice honey, hints of floral and spicy notes. Taste is a mix of grass, bread, biscuit, nice crisp crackery notes, some floral notes, finishing dry, clean. Nice version. Quack-Duck (9540) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2015
Euro2-bottle from Bierpost. Hazy deep golden with a persistent white head. Dry hoppy nose. Light-bodied, good malty start with a nice yeasty-fruity touch and some dry, slightly dusty and also slightly resiny herbal hops in the finish. Good beer and true to the style.
