Notes/Commercial Description:
A traditional Berlin-style sour wheat beer, based on the meticulous research of beer historian Ron Pattinson. Big thanks to Kristen England of Pour Decisions Brewery for all of his help along the way and to our good friend Andrew Pogue, whose test batch first inspired the idea.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pouring down the middle produces a small soapy white head that dissipates quickly leaving a cloudy golden body.

With the wild yeast and wheat in the nose I feel like I’m out at a farmhouse. The fruity element is just as prevalent with lemon and a sweet orange.

The beer has a modest tartness. Lots of wheat, lemon and a funk finish make this pretty great. There is a light lacto/yogurt element going on.

Not much carbonation. It looks flat after a bit, but my burps are telling me it’s there. Despite being such a low abv beer the body isn’t totally thin and the wheat makes this smooth.

This is a great beer and an even greater summer beer. The flavor and mouthfeel make for an enjoyable and refreshing drinking experience.
