Bottle from Bierboutique Ölwechsel, Frankfurt. 4.5% ABV. Cloudy yellow with a fast disappearing head and some big particles floating around. Refreshing lemony acidity as well as some brettanomyces. Quite acidic, hints of brettanomyces, quite a bit of lemon. Highly interesting and thirst-quenching. Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - OCT 17, 2010
50cl bottle 4.5% BBE 30/08/2010. Hazy yellow colour with a tiny white head. Citrusy aroma with baking soda? and some spices. Flavour is very tart and citrusy with baking soda and spices. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2010
bottle from Bierkompass. Cloudy pale colour, large white head. Sour nose. Sour, geuze-like with a good sharpness and tartness about. Lingering finish with a touch of dry hops. Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 9, 2011
Bottled 50cl. It pours a lactic golden beer with a quick diminishing fizzy white head. The aroma is reminiscent of dinosaur slime, horse blanket, faint plastic and lemon peel. Nice sourness. Remarkably leathery with hints of rubber and faint smoke. Delicate prickling palate. There is a nice bite to this beer. Dinosaur slime in the finish which is dry. Plenty of character. I really enjoyed this beer. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
"Wollnitzer Weiss Vollbier" from 2011 (if I can read my writing correctly) thanks to GRG1313. Been reading about this style (Lichtenhainer) on Ron Pattinson’s blog. Pours with a hazy yellow body with a white head. Aromas are tart, lemon juice, a bit of a rubbery and smokey chlorophenol, lightly grainy. Flavors are tart, mildly rubbery and smokey. Lots of puckering lactic acid. More sour than I was expecting. Lively bubbles, bone dry. Quite interesting and good.

Bottle 2.5%. Medium head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are nice and sour with wheat malt, hops, citrus and has a nice sour finish. Kavu (4815) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2012
Half liter from tap @ Tuulensuu. Pours opaque yellow with a medium head. Aroma is malts, wheat and yeast. Flavor is sour malts, wheat and yeast. Interesting and good. The low ABV doesn’t hurt at all. JulienHuxley (5809) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle thanks to Boutip. Hazy pale yellow pour, no head. Aroma of green apples, tart, raw wheat, uncooked pizza dough, very mild rubber notes. Taste has some more sour green apples, pizza dough, wheat. Palate is super light, kind of citric, tart, juicy, low carb. Good stuff, I’ll need to try a fresher bottle some time. bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2017

source, mit Kümmelschuss and bottled 50cl (MHD 15.1.2017) at home. - What an odd location, odd story, odd beer. Must be the last Thuringia-made Lichtenhainer standing, flying stealth in its very wide surroundings as simple "Wöllnitzer Weiss". - According to the brewer the few Edeka takers in town had complaints of the beer being sour... - Labeled as Schankbier despite the indicated abv of 4,2% not 2,5%. -
Fizzy beigeyellow pour. On tap: smells like the missing link between Berliner Weisse and lambiek: earthy and damp, young vinegar and Granny Smith apple cider, going on juice of unripe lemons badly cellared, whey/Molke, old socks and young cheese. Jawohl. - Bottled, an off-putting miasma of smoked rubber and band aid joins that wonderful bouquet. Briney pickle and cactus juice as well. Cacti smoked over a band aid bonfire. Body and flavour: mineral, tart, earthy, unripe, rubbery, dirty yet simple. Starts of as Granny Smith juice, then goes off: like dunking Einback white bread or untoasted toast into Spreewälder Gurken brine, mineral gherkin soup with spongy croutons. - I refer to embrouille’s stroke of genius descriptor: "dinosaur slime" - slick, with a residual wheatiness, wheat flour going into almond powder - that doused with lemon and cactus juice. May I add: un soupçon de bile de dinosaur. Reflux alert. - A case of this to cellar and reset the maturing palate with... - Homebrewed Gose mixed with a SN Otra Vez clone. And band aids. - Plenty of character and local character, if not cross-generational stories behind this beer. Beats many a US-crafty stomache acid passed off as Gose/BWeisse at $20/75cl. One to gauge the taste buds and palate with/against. I’m glad this recipe has been saved into the 21st century and survives as the cornerstone offering of a picturesque bunker pub that serves great solyanka - the ideal GDR pairing for this. - Just might cellar a few of these to serve as a Dirty Wöllnitzer Martini Spritz (TM) this summer, Aperol optional.
Sulfer, leather and citrus aroma. Pale yellow colour, fine white head, good lace. Sweetish, very sour, citric, citrus. Bit thinnish but still ok. Nice brew, quite exceptional, a little body would be fine.
