Notes/Commercial Description:
Sour Weisse is the 3rd release of the Fremont Fermentation Lab, a project Fremont Brewing created to brew unique small-batch artisan beers. Sour Weisse is touched by lactobacillus through a traditional souring process where we let this naturally occurring bacteria--found on all barley--have free reign of the wort in the kettle overnight before we boil it and ferment with our house yeast. It's like a lactobacillus playground (until we kill them during the boiling process). This all-natural process lowers the ph of the wort giving it a pleasant tartness. We then ferment out any residual sugars with our house yeast so the beer finishes dry and delicious...just like you :)

Down & Dirty: Pale Malt, Thomas Faucet Wheat Malt, Acidulated Malt, Raw Wheat, Rolled Oats, and Dextrin Malt, Goldings Hops. Because Beer Matters!

Champagne body with white trails. 4
Peach and baguette nose with a touch of DMS. 3.75
Clean wheat, peaches, unpleasant soupy middle, maybe a bit of anise, and lots of tartness. 3.25
Downright nasty aftertaste.
Crisp, fizzy, lt-med. 3.75

Not right! DMS off notes - lots of tomato and creamed corn. Not quite a Berliner weisse, either.

Drainpour.

22oz into a tulip. Pours a hazy pale straw color w/ a 1-finger head.

Aroma is lemony, peppery, clean, bready, yeasty. Smells a bit like a bakery.

Taste is a blend of lemon zest, spice, and pale bready wheat malt. The acidity works nicely to clean the palate while simultaneously urging you toward the next sip. Very drinkable.

Mouthfeel is crisp and light, with a pleasant citrusy twang and a nice dry finish. Mouth-watering.

Overall a very drinkable and refreshing beer, perfect to enjoy after mowing the lawn on a sunny spring afternoon.
