Cucumber Ginger PerpetumCucumber Ginger Perpetum
Notes: Over the course of 3 months, Perpetum naturally becomes tart and full of character. A unique solera method, created using a proprietary yeast blend, ensures consistency and perpetual motion. Inspired by traditional Berliner Weisse style ales from northern Germany. Conditioning on fresh cucumbers and ginger brings a cool and juicy balance to our bright and lively house sour wheat ale. No kettles were soured in the making of this beer.

Received in a trade and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice clear golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Big aromas of fresh cucumbers. Very bright slightly vegetative. Really bright with just a flash of ginger.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of cucumber up front. Not much ginger. There is good light acidity, faint crackers. Good lingering tartness.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, good body, little flemmy.

O - Overall this was a very solid beer with lovely cucumber notes. Really enjoyable.

Thanx to rudzud
Light fizzy small head, some lacing but little retention, slightly clear golden color

Nose starts with tart sour funk then big cucumber, big fresh cucumber, little light ginger, little fruit sour

Taste very sour, tart lemony funk, bright acidity, some cucumber up front but not a ton like the nose but some, hint of ginger, but not much, more on the back end, no malt, flemmy tart lemony finish

Mouth is med to lighter bod, flemmy bright acidity, medium higher carb

Overall pretty good, good base sour on the taste, great cucumber aroma but less on the taste although it came through more as it went, and a bit flemmy, but mostly lack of ginger keeping it from being higher
