Dancing on the fringe of what is wheat and what is sour, the ancient Berlinerweiss style appeases both crowds, teasing and taunting the other with the peer pressure that only sour and sweet tastes can provide.

Prairie's Weisse is of course a sour wheat. Its upstart is tangy, tart and nearly bracingly acidic. But its early rebuttal of wafer-thin breadiness and the must supple of powdered sugar sweetness allow a lemon-drop candy taste to emerge. An earthen waft of stewn hay mingles with notions of sea air and cellar must envelop the nose and front of the tongue.

As the taste of whole wheat and its accompanying sweetness dissolve on the middle palate, its cidery and spicy flavors introduce and its sourness intensifies. White pepper with a dash of cumin rest against reisling-type acidity that's brought to life and lightened by its sparkling and briny effervescence.

Its palate-stripping sourness is tangy, lemony and limey to finish. With no real sugar or malt structure in which to contend, the ale closes snappy, clean and suddenly... only with a deep echo of wheat that returns in a retro-nasal sort of way.

Prairie Weisse is a tremendously sculpted sour wheat that showcases the "lacto" strain to near perfection. But the seeming use of wine barrel and any resident wild yeast gives the ale a playful gusto that's a welcome stray from northern German wheated ale.

Wow, this one is great. The overall sour characteristics of this Berliner Weisse are outstanding, and on top of that, at only 4.5% abv, it would be session ale heaven if only it were available in bottles around here. Is it available in bottles at all?

Pours a slightly hazy golden straw with a frothy ivory head that dissipates to a small agglomeration of foam.

Aroma is floral and lactic, with soft malt sweetness and what adding contrast.

Green apple and lemon dominate, with plasticy phenols adding an off note. Wheat is a nice contrast. Pear adds complexity.

Body is light, with carbonation a touch on the high side.

Fairly complex, though I'm not a fan of the plastic nature.
