Early beer at FoBAB '12, three pours in the festival taster glass, around 10-12 oz. total.
Quick review from notes.
Very pale straw color in the glass, nearly a pastel shade it was somewhat hazy and glowed when held to the light. Thin layer of white foam on the surface that stuck around for the first couple sips. Aroma had a whiff of sulfur at first, but this blew off fairly quickly, revealing sour lemon, sharp lacto, and faint supporting notes of grainy wheat in the background. Extremely tart, more of an explosive sourness that builds quickly and vanishes just as fast. Very crisp and clean, puckering lemon and dry like champagne in the finish. A well crafted Berliner Weisse, much more sour than most. Extremely drinkable and refreshing, the low abv was welcome and it certainly stood out as a memorable beer early on, preceeding a night full of booze monsters.
Serving type: on-tap
