(bottle date 2012 Sep 13 - served in a Duvel balloon)

A: head that sizzles out fast... sulfury yellow liquid with only a very faint haze (may be slightly cloudier/head-ier younger?)

S: predominantly acidic, with a slight lemony bent... marginally floral, similar but not quite as distinct as say chamomile

T: refreshingly tart, but not lip-smacking... light, chalky citrus pith... interesting grainy flavor - more like an earthy pale malt than wheat malt - flares up midway through the first few sips

M: dry and snappy crisp, with a pleasantly dainty, delicate malt body... altogether quite dry... the lacto acidity does bring a mild, livening piquancy, however, it falls fairly short of puckering

O: I enjoyed the surprising balance between lacto and malt flavors here - many domestically-produced examples seem to focus on the wild qualities and eschew malt flavors, essentially making the beers flat and dry... I could do this one again - recommended

Thanks to Frank for the extra!

Poured into a New Glarus pils glass...it was convenient, and somewhat appropriate for the style. Hazy yellow-straw color, with a small cap of fizzy white head that sank to an assertive ringlet and held there; minimal lacing. Tiny bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. In the nose, sweet malted grains, light notes of lemon and grassy funk. The taste was crisp with a lemony tartness, slightly acidic, apple skin, cereal grains, sourdough, honey, the latter of which came out a bit more as the beer warmed, in the aroma and taste, leaving a residual sweetness in the finish. Light-bodied, crisp and enjoyable overall.

Bought at Beertopia in Omaha, NE. I believe the quote made on it was, "It will make your back teeth curl." If I misquoted, to the employee, I apologize. To all of you, whatever the saying may have been, it definitely referred to the exceptional sourness of this beer.

By any means, my back teeth... they did curl.

Pours a pale, light straw colour. A tad hazy and a quickly dissipating white head. As it calms the head reduces and goes away entirely. It almost appears a dirty, brownish in colour as well when set under the light. It doesn't look like much, but looks can be deceiving.

The smell is quite light but has a dominant presence of lemons, a mineral tone, and dried grass. There is also a touch of sourness and wet hay.

Non of this really gives a lot of warning for the taste. The taste is big! Full of all sorts of great Berliner Weisse stuff. The taste of lemons is wonderful and not too much or too little or even too sweet. It hovers in the beginning and plunges down into the back. All the while you get a rush of wet hay, a bit of funk, some pepperiness, a fair amount of bright dirtiness/earthiness, I also get this very unique raw wheat taste that punches in really close to the end and slowly dissipates. At first the raw, even damp wheat grain taste is a bit of a shock but once you become a bit more accustom to it, it makes a lot of sense with the rest of the beer and really makes it interesting.

The mouthfeel is just as refreshing as I had hoped it to be. Crisp, a bit more sour than I had pictured it being, but thats good, and very dry. Not letting the sweet tones get in the way at all. Refreshing like no ones business.

Overall, I will buy this beer again. It is fabulous and I actually appreciate the low ABV. It makes it easy just to kick back and have a beer, with a GREAT deal of flavor and complexity, and still be able to go about doing stuff without feeling a bit fuzzy.
