New Belgium's Lips of Faith's Yuzu. This is an imperial Berliner Weisse brewed with Yuzu juice. 8% ABV. I've never had a Berliner Weiss (this is the first I've come across), and this is clearly not to style (typically, they are 2.5%-3.5%, from what I've gleaned), but it's a start. :shrug
A: Just over a finger of fairly active head. Fades to nothing, pretty shortly. Color is a cross between a filtered hef and bright lemonade. Yellowish-white in the dimple.
S: Grapefruit and lemon in the nose. A touch of a wheat beer smell. Apparent acidity is light.
T/MF: Hmm. I wouldn't call this a sour beer. There is a bit of acidity, but more of a slightly tart hef, than a sour (less tart than the Tart Lychee). Notes of dry lemon peel and wheat. Not much to it, really. A good one for wheat beer fans, but a pass for sour fans, I would say. Still, worth a try, in general.
Poured into a Belgian tulip glass, from a 22 oz. bottle.
Serving type: bottle
