500ml bottle, vintage 2009. Reviewed from notes; thanks to whoever shared this!

A: Opaque yellow body under a fine layer of off-white head that settles into a ring and leaves spotty lace. All right.

S: Moderate lemony sourness, some strawberry, grassiness, and peppery spice. Mild yet complex.

T: Follows the nose - mix of fruity sourness, bready malt, and bizarre spice. A little musty on the back end. Interesting and enjoyable.

M: Medium body, still, and slick. Ok.

O: Intriguing beer, but not one I'm dying to revisit.

Cheers!

Pours a pale yellow with a small white head.

The smell is sour lemons and wheat.

The taste is sour lemons, very tart.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

I really enjoyed this beer, sour lemons and wheat tastes great. Will be a great choice for in the summer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a vibrant, bright, gold color with a one fingered pure white head, light carbonation.

S - Tart and fruity with lemons, white grapes, pears, some hints of sour green apple, and a funky twang that dominates the nose.

T - Very tart and borderline puckering, funk dominates the palate. Sour light fruit notes of pears, apples, lemons, some white grapes, and a little bit of cheese funk going on. Lingering puckering tartness.

M - Light medium body with a dry finish but because of the tartness it creates a lot of salivation. Lots of carbonation pricklies on the tongue but still finishes with a gentle carbonated finish.

O - Not my style of beer but nicely done.
