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: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Thanks to Calvin (ApostleBrewing) for this goody, shared with rudzud and others.

Almost no fizzy head, clear yellow pilsner color.

Nose toasty wheat, light sour lemony grass thing, light musty earthy.

Taste stats with light lemony grassy flavor, toasted wheat, grassy hay light, earthy slightly sour funky, bready, light mineral, little watery. Finish is dry and light bitterness, little funk and sour wheat, bready, little sticky.

Mouth is lighter bod, little watery, very little carb.

Overall not bad but not what I expected, little watery, decent sour and more toasty wheat.

Serving type: bottle
