Viggo shared this one. thanks eric!

500ml bottle.

pours bright yellow, almost flourescent, with just a touch of haze. a small dense ring of bubbles surrounds the glass.

aroma is nice. grain, crackers, white bread. bit of lemony sourness. a little earthy character too. just a hint of spice hiding in the background - clove maybe?

taste is nice. lemony sourness. bit of honey sweetness. crackers and a bit of grain. slightly acidic. just a hint of banana or something in the background that i can't quite place.

mouthfeel is good. medium-high carbonation level. fairly light body.

drinkability is good. light and refreshing. my first experience with this interesting style, and i really enjoyed it. definitely something i'll have to try again, and maybe attempt brewing myself.

Poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance
Hazy straw with 4 fingers of white head that rapidly dissipates. The carbonation appears to be low.

Nose
Lemony citrus, wheat, bubblegum and pilsner malts. Very subtle but smells fantastic!

Taste
Lemon juice, wheat and a light lactic sourness. Light notes of pilsner malt, a touch of grassy hops and a couple of crushed up SweetTarts.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, sharp, crisp and subtly tart.

Overall
Extremely crisp and refreshing with just a spot of lactic sourness. A tasty little treat.
