Super sour, very citrusy and actually quite dry. I do not drink this style very often but I actually quite like this.

It won't be for everyone, really very sour. Think of a Berliner Kindl Weisse "ohne schuss" and you will get the idea.

Pours cloudy light gold, large head dissipates quite quick

Grainy, slightly citric funky aroma

Citrusy dryness, grainy again. Enough bitterness

Pretty good, especially considering it was from Aldi for £1.50 a bottle. Not up there with the better ones though

Bottled and possibly bottle conditioned
Funkier than a slapped bass
this gets more tongue twistingly good as the ale flows
nice mix of sour & spice with superb body
