Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

We aged last year's Leisure time Lager [a spiced, wheat lager] in wine barrels with wild yeast and souring organisms. Through this process, the beer is transformed creating a lightly tart, funky and dry beer. Prost!

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

A- golden hue transparent with medium lacing around the glass. Bubble fizz up from bottom of glass.

S- Lemon zest, funk, citrus, bit of brett.

T- Tastes like Sanctification with a little more lemon.

M- Pretty thin, as expected. Carbonation follows down the throat.

O- This was my first Berliner Weiss; odd because I have traded away a few in that past few months. Again, tastes like sanctification with a bit more lemon and less carbonation. Thanks Mike!!
