BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Upright Brewing Company
Oregon, United States

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.80%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Jokingly named by Upright’s beer titler Angelo de Ieso after our pal Vasili, head brewer at Laurelwood, this brew is a one-off barrel fermented Berliner-weisse. It’s got a pleasantly funky and aromatic nose with the characteristic sharp sour flavor produced by large amounts of lactic acid bacteria. The Lactovasilios was a small batch blend that is a part of the Sole Composition series, only 176 bottles produced.

A - Pours a crystal clear, very light orange with a fizzy off-white head that is gone instantly.

S - Funky, tart lemon, some woodiness as well.

T - Just strong tart lemons.

D - Good carbonation with a very light body.

O - Tart lemon with a touch of funk and wood. Light and crisp and very refreshing. Not overly complex, but very nice.
