Notes/Commercial Description:
Boiler Room is a light bodied but surprisingly flavorful sour wheat beer. The sourness is created by souring the wort prior to boiling and fermentation (unlike Belgian-style sours which sour during fermentation and have active bacteria in them when packaged). The nose of the beer has a light Hersbrucker hop note and a distinct funkiness. The taste is sweet malt quickly going into a tart body and finish. The sour and malt flavors balance well all the way through creating a very refreshing beverage, akin to drinking a tart lemonade or limeade. For a beer with just over 3.5%, it creates a big experience for the palate.

Traditionally this beer is enjoyed either straight or with raspberry or woodruff syrup to sweeten it (and turn it red or green, respectively).

I was glad to see the Houston Fly & Saucer offering St Arnold’s Boiler Room on tap.

Served in a standard pint, the beer is light yellow with great clarity.

Nice sour funk and grains in the nose.

It is sour, tart and refreshing. Hit the spot in the hot, humid Houston weather.

The mouth is decent, would love to see a touch more carbonation.

Nice stab at the style, I enjoyed it!

Serving type: on-tap
