4.35/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed out of a brown 500 mL bottle with no dating information that I could find on the label or bottle. Poured into a classic weizen glass.

Appearance - Standard pour yields a single finger of stark white, frothy head, with a few larger bubbles bunching up on one side of the glass where I finished the pour. Retention is pretty good, but obviously nothing like you'd expect from a regular hefeweizen, with the foam receding to a half finger and leaving little to no lacing on the sides of the glass. The body is a hazy blend of straw and lemon yellow hues, with carbonation bubbles building up on the bottom of the glass before drifting lazily to the surface intermittently.

Smell - The presence of tart, lactic acid is the first thing that hits my olfactory nerves, with a pinch of lemon and some salty brine characteristics. Beneath that initial assault is a softer grainy characteristic and just a subtle hint from what I imagine is coriander spice.

Taste - I love how refreshing and tart this is, but not overpoweringly sour. Brine and lemon zest are up front, along with a nice bready wheat component to prevent the acidity from getting carried away. There's also some funk and barnyard element, but it's not enough to overshadow the refreshing tartness.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and moderate carbonation, with a tangy feel on the finish.

Overall, a solid take on the style. Could easily be up there with some of my favorites--plenty of tart and salt, but isn't just an overpowering sour bomb. There is actually subtlety of flavor going on here.

4.06/5  rDev +1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

When I watched it poured I commented on how light and watery it appeared. A light bronze coloring it was capped by a thin fizzy foam.

The nose is starchy with a wheat malt. There is a touch of fruit like apples but it's light.

The flavor is so much better than the other aspects were revealing. The taste is bold Apple cider, sweet pear, Sweet Tarts candy and a layer of starchy wheat. I did not detect any saltiness but the fruit and sour combination was quite exceptional.

The feel was substantial enough but it didn't have a lot of tanginess. Moderately carbonated it was very easy to drink.

I may have missed the salty qualities that the style should have, and a judge might deduct points, but the overall flavor is very nice.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500 ml bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with about a half inch off-white head that didn't stick around for too long. There's a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and tart, the brew smells like tart fruit (citrus, apple), wheat, peaches, and some salty herbalness. It tastes like lemon/lemon peel, wheat, earthy herbalness, salt, tart peaches, and tart apples. Moutfheel/body is light/medium, it's tart and refreshing with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, good thing for me I bought 2 bottles! $5.79 a bottle.

A - Dark golden colour. Thin white head.

S - Mild funk and citrus. Getting some malt on the nose as well.

T - Citrus up front then coriander and and salt. Cannot taste the alcohol at all. Enjoying this on a hot summer day, it is a very refreshing beer.

M - Very smooth, crisp, and slightly puckering.

O - Great beer. I really enjoy how different this style of beer is.
