Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: anteater on 04-10-2014

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Our double version of Bu Weisse, a spontaneously fermented interpretation of a Berliner Weisse. Fermented and aged in oak barrels, this batch was dry hopped to accentuate the lemon and citrus character in the base beer. Dry, crisp, sour and citrusy.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden body. Big white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Nice grassy and grapefruit hoppiness. The lemon isn't really a lemony hop, more from the yeast and acidity.

Taste - Grassy here too, but lemon takes over. Really strong lemony flavor without being too tart. Some pale malt flavors come through in the back.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Light sourness. Medium body.

Overall - Refreshing and flavorful. (470 characters)

A-Cloudy orange, some carbonation and a one finger head.

S-Orange and lemon with other citrus notes. Some earthy hop notes.

T-Nice tart notes, some citrus, some hoppy notes and grapes as well.

M-Medium bodied, a nice tart finish, not much carbonation.

O-A good beer, but compared to the Apricot it pales in comparison. (322 characters)
