Freigeist Geisterzug

June 16, 2013

Overall Grade:B-
Taste:B-
Drinkability:B
Aroma:B

Freigeist spruced up the nearly-extinct traditional sour beer of Leipzig. Boy, I'd hate to imagine how bland the traditional version is if this is a spruced up version.

As the 5% ABV suggests, it's very light. It's not really sour at all; it's carbonated and rather tasteless. It finishes with that dry German flavor we are all used to, but nothing else stands out.

It's a little funky and yeasty, but not very exciting overall. It's very drinkable, but I was diasappointed with this beer.
