Clear golden with little white head. Aroma is parmesan, grapes, cheese, salt. Taste is the same with sourness and salt, a bit ugly. Watery. Meh.

Bottle shared by Bartlebier at BKL München 2017, many thanks!
Yellow, clear body, with almost no head.
Aroma of ripe cheese, unripe stone fruits, some citrus, slight vomit.
Tastes of stone fruits, sour citrus, cheese, some old milk, some piss.
Light, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sour, cheesy, fruity, citric.

Strange. Very cheesy, rough stuff, I’m not the biggest fan of this to be honest. Characterful and unique nonetheless. Never had a beer like this before, so after all a nice opportunity to try such a hard to come by style.

Several pure on tap@Talschänke 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.

Ob tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Pours pale yellow, opalescent, with a medium and persistent white head. Aroma of barnyard, cheese (parmigiano), esters, lactic, light smoke... terribile. Flavour is light sweet with a sour end, citric and light tart. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Not my cup of tea.

Draught at the brewpub. Slightly sulfury but that only suits its lactic taste. Light, crisp, aromatic. Decidedly lactic though not as sour as a berliner weisse. Really nice aftertaste of sour milk and just a pinch of hops. A complementary bonfire smoked note, on the verge of perception. Well, this is a very good sour beer. Sour enough, not over the top and very aromatic. Thumbs up.

Aroma: lactobacillus, very weak smoked notes, sour. Appearance: hazy straw color, nice white head. Taste: smoked notes (like bonfire), sourness, cloves, thin malty backbone. Palate: low body and high carbonation, smoked finish. Overall: Probably the last traditional lichtenhainer. Really good stuff.

Das Etikett sieht aus, als sei es noch aus DDR-Zeiten übrig geblieben - scheint interessant zu sein, halt sehr urig. Der Antrunk ist mild-wässrig, angenehm säuerlich mild. Diese Note verstärkt sich im Hauptteil. Nicht zu säuerlich und gut trinkbar. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, angenehm säuerlich-mild. (Test vom 28.6.2007) --> 12,10,9,10,15,14 - 11,90

Bottle. 2.5%. No best before date, but some years old. Pours a cloudy yellow with an off-white head. Aroma is sweetish and sourish, note of wheat and a light cream cheese-like note. Flavour is sour and sweet, with a bit of rum essence and a faint cardboard note. A bit watery. Sour finish, dry, with a not of berries and a lingering nectarine note. Overall okay, and surprised it holds up so well after several years. Still, would like to try a fresher one. 05.10.13.

Wöllnitzer Weißbier
Vom Faß in der Talschänke. - Orangegelb, trüb; dichter weißer Schaum. - Nase und Antrunk fruchtig-würzig, Koriandernoten, etwas scharf. Leicht beißende, saure Schärfe (tartness) mit hintergründiger Orangensüße. Trockener Abgang ohne Bittere. - Sehr ungewöhnlich und beim ersten Probieren noch nicht so recht überzeugend. Mal sehen, wie die beiden mitgebrachten Flaschen sich entwickeln ... - Hat laut Speisekarte und Flaschenetiketten 4 % Alk.

Neuverkostung 7.9.2014 mit einer im Herbst 2013 erstandenen Flasche (MHD: 11/13). - Hellgelb, klar: die Hefe hat sich komplett am Flaschenboden abgelagert, kann jedoch aufgeschüttelt werden, dann wird das Bier schön milchig trüb. - In der Nase milde zitronige Säure, leichte Orangenschale. - Im Antrunk frisch aber doch mild zitronensauer mit leichter Schärfe. Mild rezent, erfrischend schlank. Im Abgang leicht trocken und etwas herb, vor allem aber sauer. - Angenehmes Bier mit prominenter fruchtiger Säure, die aber trotz deutlich zitroniger Note nicht aggressiv, sondern milchsauer abgemildert ist. Enorm erfrischend bei geringem Alkoholgehalt. Wie erwartet, hat die fast einjährige Lagerung den Geschmack nur verfeinert.

Bottle, thanks to Roman. It pours hazy straw yellow with a small fizzy white head. The nose is dough, lemon juice, musty, farmyard, vinegar, sour yoghurt, lightly smoked cheese, caramelised banana and a touch of underlying sweetness. The taste is sour lemon, sherbet, tart green apple, moderate acidity, citric, cheap white wine, lactic acid, yoghurt and pickled onion monster munch with a dry finish. Light body and high, prickly carbonation. A very interesting beverage indeed. Very refreshing and enjoyable.

bottle from the strange fellow who spent a cold stormy vermont night standing in the hells of a port-a-john wildly swinging an empty bottle of brother soigne around in circles yelling "J’ai faim de bières" with a pair of soiled pants around his ankles. seemed like a nice enough bloke at the time. well this is quite the tasty beer. clean, complex lemon zest, soft yogurt sourness, pleasant old world foggy must and basement dust. bright lemon yogurt tartness is quite refreshing super flavorful @ 2.5 percent abv. quite the nice beer. this brew did not fair as well for my sister. always one for rounding, she exclaimed "this beer is two percent alcohol and ninety-eight percent gross". sheesh.

Bottle from EithCubes. Hazy pour with a yellow body and a white head that just doesn’t want to stick around. Sweet aroma with some sweaty tang. A deeper sourness comes through in the flavor and approaches the territory of sour patch kids candy. Light body feels a bit heavy from the sour stickiness. Bubbly carbonation and a lingering sour finish. Quite tasty!

Rastacouere
4.1
Wöllnitzer Weißbier
Hazy pale gold though not quite so pale as many wheat beers. The initial white cover does not last very long and leave a rather dull-looking liquid. Interesting nose, much fruitier than you’d expect a Berliner Weisse, with white grapes, banana and pineapple notions on top of the usual lemon/citrus, all in freshness and a bit unripe rather than juicy. In mouth, the lactic acid blends nicely with the fruit, bringing forth a very refreshing flavour profile, like a cup of nature yogurt in which fresh fruits have been thrown in, with a crisp, bright small-bubbles carbonation and a dry, gently tannic texture that begs sip after sip. At 2.5%, it is obviously very easy to drink, but remains tasty and not overly simple, its wheat being well extracted enough as to feel bready and fresh. Great stuff.

Bouteille de 500ml. Bière entrant dans la catégorie des Schankbier (traduit littéralement par bière pression. Dans les faits c’est une bière à faible teneur en alcool). Bière dorée avec une mousse blanche, avec la levure la bière jaunit. Le nez est très évidant avec des notes de pommes vertes, de cidre et de jus de pomme, le tout légèrement acidulé. La bouche est piquante, rafraichissante, acidulé avec des pommes. À boire avec un currywurtz.

Une bouteille de 50 cl. Une robe blonde et son anneau de mousse. Un nez agréablement fruité qui montre un caractère aigre et légèrement suret. Des saveurs sures et rafraîchissantes de cidre et de citron mûr. Une bouche étonnante. Une texture huileuse. Un pétillement soutenu. Une finale longue, acide et parfumée. Extrêmement facile à boire. Je dirais même plus: câlistement bonne.

Bottle: Poured a pale clear yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of lactic sourness notes with some light wheat malt notes. Taste is mostly dominated by lactic notes with some quite intense sour notes and some acidity. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Well brewed though maybe a tad too much acidity for my taste.

The pour reveals a cloudy yellow color with a thin white head. The aroma is very funky with lactic sourness, citrus and wheat. The flavor has a nice balance between the funk, the sourness, the citrus and the wheat. This is immensely refreshing and yet complex and highly enjoyable. The body is light to medium with a creamy and oily texture and medium carbonation. What an amazing beer, I can’t have enough!

Aroma is sourish with some apples and sour cream. Flavour is rather sour and somewhat tart with sour cream, green apples and wheat. Feels almost like a lambic. Refreshing and good!
