Pours a sharp golden color with a small fluffy white head that dissolves into a ring in short time.
Lots of lacto in the nose. Strong lemon aroma. Don't get much grainy wheat from the nose.
Similar flavors as the nose and it is wonderful. Tons of lemon tartness up front with a little apple as well. Relentlessly sour and puckering throughout it finishes very dry and oaky.
Light bodied, but probably fuller than most berliners with good carbonation levels. Supremely dry finish.
Not sure why this is a Berliner weiss. Scored as that, it would be much lower since it's too tart and oaky with not nearly enough grainy wheat that is standard for the style. As an American Wild, it is sublime and one of the best ones I've had so I've scored it as such. If you want a great American Wild try this beer. If you want a traditional Berliner look elsewhere though.
Serving type: on-tap
