As the natural fruit tendencies of Berlinerweiss invite additional fruit decoration, the focus on fructose can easily distract from the natural earth, spice and pungent character of rye ale.

Butxton's norther German sour ale unleashes the lacto-tart character onto a bed of wheat, bread and raspberry for a uniquely tart taste. Sure, the raspberries have their hayday with a strong ruby hue and pinkish swath of foam, and that character carries through a tangy berry scent and onto a semisweet fruit and malt palate. But its the sourness that soon steels the show.

As the sweetness of fruit and malt relax, the acidic nature of the beer takes hold with whimsical notions of crabapple, lime, dried lemon, tangy orange, sour red grape and a mild hint of balsamic. As the clean lactic tartness pangs away at the middle, a faint drift of burlap and must infultrates the flavor and floats just above the tongue.

Tangy white and rose wine decorate the beer's finish as the deciedly lemon-laced beer carries a medium-light texture with hints of peppercorn, pectin and suggestive vinegar.

Pours red-tinged light brown with a fading head.
Nose shows raspberry jam, sweet bready malt and little else.
Very sour flavours, no sign of sweetness. Overt raspberry with a faint bready note in the background again.

Poured into a tumbler at the Church Key Sour Session Vol. 9. $10 for 10oz.

A miss in my book. Not again for me. 3.5

A – Pours a cloudy. Not an attractive. Almost zero head. 3.25

S – Some fruit, minor lactic and a soapy sweetness. 2.75

T – Tartness, but not puckery, fruit/raspberry but no cloying fruit or sweetness. 3.75

MF – Medium light bodied. A watered down thin feel. Coats the palate. 3.25
