Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
The name Prussia originates from Frederick the Great. Frederick was trained to brew this very delicate style of beer and later became the King of Prussia. Our interpretation of the Berliner Weisse style is very traditional. Prussia pours a hazy straw hue with a nice clean tart finish. Enjoy alone or with flavored syrup.

Released last week, on tap @ the brewery

The beer pours a cloudy straw yellow with a loose thin white head that fades into nothing without lacing. The nose is potently wheaty with notes reminiscent of lemon rind, canned pears, and a hint of bile. The taste is similarly complex with sweet grainy wheat upfront, a bit of berry, lemon, and apricot. The mouthfeel is effervescent and tart with dialed-in sourness, drinkability, a light body, and slight fruitiness. I can appreciate a light, drinkable beer like this on a hot day in the Midwest, but have had better versions in the past that bring a lot more funk and complexity to the table.

Massive frothy head after the pour does subside after about 60 seconds it almost entirely vanishes. Pale golden straw color and very cloudy. Aroma of pale wheat and pear like aroma. The mouthfeel is fairly carbonated and almost has a soda pop like consistency, but is also fairly brisk and refreshing. Fruity, yet tart and highly carbonated. A summer refresher.

Bottle (2012)

Thanks for opening this with me, JealousChalice!

Hazy golden with lots of visible carbonation and a moderately sized white head that leaves thin streaks of lacing down the glass.

Mild aroma, but what's here is very much to style: wheat, some acidic, sour character, a bit of lemon, and white fruit.

The flavor is similar, with wheat and lemon characterisitcs dominating, and a very mild sour component.

Medium bodied with high carbonation. Near-perfect for the style and incredibly drinkable.

A very straight-forward, incredibly drinkable Berliner.

Pours a slightly hazed amber with a sliver of beige head. Stays effervescent, near zero head retention & lacing

S: Hay, tartness, slight hints of dirt & that's about it

T: Tartness, hay & dryness up front. Faint golden delicious apple notes as this warms, plus tartness, a little bit of pear too. Finishes dry, tart & fruitty

MF: Light bodied with slight carbonation, slightly wet

Super refreshing & fairly spot on for the style, a bit too clean perhaps
