A - Translucent, cloudy yellowish-amber sunburst color. Highly carbonated. Produced two finger head . Very attractive.
S - Pleasenty overpowering. Citrus and floral came out of the bottle swinging the second the cap was removed.
T - Lienkugels is definatly in a class all of it's own. Honestly, I find it very sweet. This, of course, is a double edged sword as far as I'm concerned. Sometimes I enjoy it, and sometimes I don't. It is an odd beer; one that doesn't really fit in anywhere, leaving it very hard to compare with anything else I've tried. With that said, I consider the taste, especially it's citrus character, of this beer appealing.
M - Lingering. Though, the mouthfeel of this beer has an odd charima about it.
D - Once again, dependent on my mood. All in all, I couldn't see drinking more than a couple of these at one siting. However, if I am in the mood for it, the experience is always positive.
Lienkugels is a very odd beer. After years of drinking it, I still don't know exactly where I stand with it. Though, as far as witbiers are concerned, I would choose this beer over many. It strange, I have a definate love/hate relationship with this beer that is rather inexplicable. All in all, if you have never tried this beer before, you must. I don't often say that, but its the truth.

Picked this up on a whim. Pours a cloudy pale straw color with little head or lacing. The nose is artificial blueberry and belgian yeast. Think a blueberry eggo with some yeasty bread dough on top. The flavor is bready with lots of bitter not fresh blueberries. Not what I expected when I grabbed thus and not something I'd come back to.
