Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 03-11-2012

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

In Berliner Weisse we think we’ve found the perfect style for our summer Cellar Reserve. This north German wheat beer is traditionally brewed and released very fresh. It has a light body from the wheat and refreshingly tart acidity that make it a perfect summer thirst-quencher. Its lemony tartness is provided by a secondary fermentation with lactobacillus, the same microorganism that’s responsible for yogurt’s tang. That tartness increases and improves with age, so the people of Berlin are known to buy extra bottles to bury in their gardens for two years or more.

As usual with our Cellar Reserves, we’ve taken a traditional style and added our own twist. In this case we’ve tripled the strength over the traditional beer, which should only increase its aging potential. For the primary fermentation we used a traditional Bavarian hefeweizen yeast that produces soft notes of banana and clove. We followed that with lactobacillus and six months in conditioning to create a complex fruity acidity that compliments the soft sweet malt tones and a unique ale that is both fulfilling and refreshing.

12 oz bottle of Snarling Badger with bottled on date of 23 June 2014.
Pours clear, light amber with a small head.
The aroma is an unappealing mix of yeast, citrus, bready malts and funk.
Flavor: mildly tart with a mostly lemony citrus tone. Some bready light grains.

O: get past the aroma and you'll find a quite drinkable weisse beer with well hidden ABV.
