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).

4.19/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Glass Used: Goblet

Appearance: Slightly hazed straw yellow liquid with a fast and furious fizzy head that disappears very quickly. Reminds me of ginger ale bubbles. No lacing whatsoever.

Smell: Sourness, unmistakable wheat aromas, a wee smidge of funk. Nothing overpowering here.

Taste: Sour flavors hit first, followed by wheatiness then tartness. I almost get a lemon-lime, pickle juice profile. Again, nothing overpowering here. This would be killer after mowing the yard or after a day out in the sun. Very enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Thin, very quaffable. Some puckering qualities here too.

Overall: This is my first Berliner Weisse, so I have nothing to compare it against, however judging from how much I liked this beer, I plan to seek out this style specifically. I really, really dig this beer.
