A: poured into a chalice to a pale and slightly hazy yellow with a small white head that is quick to fade
S: smells of pale wheat malt, and a bit of lemony tartness
T: tart lemony flavor up front with some slight pale maltyness and a bit of wheat. swallow brings some creamy wheat flavor and a slight cracker like malt flavor
M: light with soft and slightly prickly carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: a great beer for a warm day. the tartness is nice and the flavors are light yet still apparent. very drinkable and very enjoyable

A: Hottenroth is exceptionally lively, with torrents of tiny bubbles rising from the etching at the bottom of my Stella glass. The body is ever so slightly hazed, and the palest shade of amber one can imagine. Head forms in a frenzy, but quickly fades to nothing.

S: Bouquet is a bit shy, giving only the slightest hint of lemons.

T: Bone dry and exceptionally tart, this brew is both refreshing and delicious. Granny smith apples and lemonade meld together to form an deliciously tart treat.

M: Light, clean, and incredibly effervescent.

D: An outstanding example of one of the most fascinating styles of brew. I highly recommend this to any fan of sour brews, as it is quite delicious.

Crystal clear pale yellow on the pour with a quickly dissipating paper white champagne like head. It dissipates to zilch, nothing, zero cap. No lacing is evident whatsoever. All of that fits the style guidlines perfectly. 5/5

Green apples, pinot, putrid wheaties, and tart citrus dominate the nose. This smells great! 4.5/5

Wonderfully sour taste has a hint of bleu cheese and tons of crisp rolled wheat comes across the soft palate on the finish. Its not super complex but it is so wonderfully good at what it does its worth the price of admission. 4.5/5

Thin, brisk, highly carbonated, and refreshing. Primo. 5/5

Do beers get any easier to drink than this? I think not! Another top score it is! 5/5
