BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
At his core, Frederick H. embodies some of the elements you’d expect in a Berliner Weisse-style beer, such as a tart flavor profile from lactobacillus, a hint of brettanomyces and traditionally low ABV. He gets a little racy though, and gains even more funky and earthy notes from house cultures and fermentation in our oak foeders at Bruery Terreux. After nature takes its course, Frederick H. emerges with a bright, refreshing body, palate-cleansing tartness and au naturel rawness.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Slightly cloudy yellow color with a brief head and little lacing. The smell is subdued but of tart fruit. The taste is tart and refreshing. Nice beer for lunch.

An absolutely tremendous entry in the style. Nails the clean sour beautifully. Carbonation and mouthfeel are spot on. Slight orange peel on the palate.

On tap. Served in a Willi Becher glass. Pours a lighter golden yellow body, slight murky hue, good retention, light lacing. Smells of wheat, sour lactic acidity, lemon, citrus, touch of leather, but for the most part this is a very sour berliner weisse through and through. The flavour profile agrees with the nose; with a bit more slightly grainy sweetness. Heavy lactic acid, lemon and citrus. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, refreshing, but not exactly a crushable beer unless you have the intestinal fortitude of a giant. Still, a tasty choice and I think it would work well in between different beer styles on draft- it is refreshing, and your palate is ready for the next beer once you're finished with this one.
