Loud tallboy. Brumous straw blonde, icy white head. Lemony, yeasty, belgian aroma. Lightly sour, mossy mouthfeel, lightly astringent, a bit sweet, not very bitter. Biotic. Light body, easy drinking. New Leaf Market, Tallahassee.

From the time I saw this can at vintage, my mouth started watering. Looks like lighter vanilla pale with a little haze. First taste is so refreshing! Exceeds my expectations. No fruit or sugar just a very well made tart beer, I am diggin this. Man, I liked the original 'kerke, but this is fantastic! Yummy tart wild experience, I'd say it almost comes close to the civilized tartness of a rodey, mixed with a little bright pale cantillon. Yes, every swig is well done tart beer. I'm glad they gave me a pounder of this. Hope they never quit making this stuff. On the finish I think I may detect a little bit of a processed taste but now its fleeting. In the end all I can say is THIS BEER ROCKS!

Can. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of tart fruit, lemon, funk. Taste follows with oak, coriander notes, touch of white wine. Not bad.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2018 Surprising based on the can description. Funky tart with shades of gose. Not sure if I would try it again.

This one poured from the can a mild amber with a moderately lasting white head as would be expected for a wit. A bready malt with the wheat germ touch was detected followed by the earthy sour tart bacteria expected in the product. Hops were mild and slightly herbal. A good session brew like the original.

vinivini (3323) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 10, 2017
Can. Aroma: wild yeast, fruity sourness, wheat, fruit. Light body. Light sour taste. White bread. Fruit. Tart ending. Very refreshing summer stuff

Drake (14451) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 17, 2017
Half liter can from Downer Avenue Spirits. Sightly hazy amber, large creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of tart lemon and wheat. The taste is apple juice, lemon, wheat. Thin, mildly tart. Faint tannins. Okay.

Decent Wit, made far more interesting with the slight funk and acidity added by the wild bacteria and yeast. Refreshing, crisp, could use a touch more carb but overall a nicely balanced, easily accessible wild ale. Will be picking this one up.

kyzr (1633) - Montana, USA - AUG 3, 2017
Gold pour with nice big white head. Hints of wheat and lemon on the nose. Flavor is lemon with some herb and wheat. Nice sourish finish.

onceblind (11523) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2017
Hazy straw hue with a thin foamy meringue like head. Light sour aromas combined with light orange/lemon peel and coriander and lactic funk. Crisp and tasty flavor that’s got a mild lemony twang with earthy citric funk and a kiss of coriander and orange peel. Lightly tart throughout with a refreshing semidry finish. Delicate and complex and tasty.
