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).

Poured from a bottle into a Jester King Funk and Sour Fest Tulip. Been looking forward to this one for a while.

Appearance: Translucent yellow, with no lacing and only the faintest head that disappeared quickly.

Smell: Sweet lager-y yeast with a nice sour, fruity wheat.

Taste: Tart lemon but not too sour, but a tad watery. Still has a distinctly grainy lager-like flavor beneath the sour. A little bit of "garbage-water" but not in a terrible way. Some of that is expected in a plain berliner, so no complaints there. This is good, but isn't wowing me.

Mouthfeel: Prickly carbonation, and not particularly dry. Sticks around a while.

Overall: A solid offering from Saint Arnold, and I'm glad we have a cheap, locally available berliner. This could probably benefit from some fruit syrup though.
