Kellerbier / Zwickelbier |  5.50% ABV

Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
Borne of our brewers’ many trips to Germany, Alpine Spring features a unique blend of lager attributes: the balanced maltiness and hoppiness of a Helles, the smoothness and slightly higher alcohol of a traditional spring bock, and the unfiltered appearance of a Kellerbier. The beer is brewed with Noble Tettnang hops to add a unique, bright orange-citrusy aroma and flavor.

Served in my Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass:

Pours a golden and hazy orange with about a finger of off white thin head. Left some decent lacing at first that disappeared over the course of the drink. Smells of stale lemons, grassy, and wheat. Crisp and clean hop bill up front, followed by some malty chewiness, and finishes with a lemon zest sour citrus smack. This is a medium to full body, but has a relatively sour feel to it that I can't undo. Other than the sourness, it is highly drinkable, but I would go "on to the next one....before trying this one a second time.
