Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.
Pours a slightly cloudy, dark golden straw color with a half finger white foam head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace left behind.
Slightly funky aroma with a faint lactic/cheesy presnce. Kind of bland really with subtle spice, citrus rind and bread. A bit sulfuric as well but the nose is kind of one dimensional and weak.
Medium bodid with some tart, puckering acidity up front that's countered by citrus fruit and sourdough bread notes. Flavors fall off mid-palate and there is an odd metallic adjunct flavor that overpowers. Doesn't have traditional characteristics associated with the style. Lacking in bready yeast, fullness in body, lactic funk and wheat beer notes. Kind of bland really with some lactic funk and sour lemon acidity up front.

A: A nice hazy yellow in color, you can see the bubbles from the carbonation in the beer so there is a little transparency, started off with a little white head at the top that turned into a crown very quickly, not to much lacing was visible.
S: Wheat, Lemon, some hint of grapes and apples as well, sour note is present throughout.
T:The sourness hit me on the first sip, lots of wheat and lemon, and the sour is super present on the the palate, slight hints of apples on the tail end.
M: Light/Medium bodied, a good amount of carbonation.
O: Was not a fan of this brew, but I would say it wasn't terrible, I guess I am not a fan of sour beers, not to hard to drink but just something I didn't enjoy.

Finished off a very enjoyable tasting session at Tørst with this one.
Cloudy pale orange. Head is white, small bubbles with thin rim left behind. Bit dark, actually, for the style. But nice.
Smells very funky. Tart, vinegary, to the point of smokiness actually, which is a little bizarre. Hugely organic. Bit yeasty. Not bad.
Taste is tart, gets more tart and also funky and organic. Big apple cider note with cider vinegar edge. Gets a little bready and almost like a bread pudding with raisiny sweetness. Tart overall, a bit dry. Barnyardy. Mulchy at times too. Tastes nice, but has a few very odd moments through the palate.
Bit of body, gets a bit of a pull but not very puckering.
Decent Berliner weisse, very much in the organic school of beers.
