BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Evil Twin Brewing
New York, United States
eviltwin.dk

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Nomads; constantly moving, 'round and 'round; sometimes settle, if just for a bit.
Perhaps the muse moves one to brew a sharp and clean session beer, one inspired by the Berliner-weisse of old, and the nomad rests. Enjoy this beer, here, there, perhaps north of Madison Square Park, in lovely New York City. Wherever you are, this beer was made nice, simply for you.

Pours nicely and settles with a thin ring of off-white head, stray bits of lacing. Surprisingly cloudy. Bit of brine and salt, aromas of fleshy lemon. Not overly tart, not too salty, but what makes it memorable is the strong grain aftertaste - this isn't a bad thing. Light, fresh mouthfeel makes it a sessionable favorite.

White wine glass: 12oz bottle. Evil Twin is one of my favorite breweries hands down. This isn't their most impressive effort, but it's certainly worth drinking, especially with warm weather approaching. As far as Berliner-Weisses go, I appreciate Nomader because it's low-key. It's the appropriate amount of tart and refreshing and without too much of the citrusy tang that can sometimes leave a bad taste in my mouth (e.g. Anderson Valley Gose/Blood Orange Gose). There are better examples of this style for sure, but not too many.

This beer tartness, green character, and low carbonation reminds me of vino Verde, a Portuguese white wine. It's quite dry, the only thing that makes you notice it's actually a beer it's its grain presence ester yeast presence. Sulfure notes

Hazy gold body, not much head.

Salty, sharp citrus.

Green apple, wheat, vinegar and acidic. Too sour and musty for me.

Dry, light with a clean finish.

This is a hazy golden color. The smell is sharply sour with lemon and a wheatiness. The taste is sour/tart beginning to end with lemon and green apple and maybe bitter orange. Very crisp. nb

10/2/16...pours semi-clear gold, very still, no foam. Faint nose, slight saltiness. Lemon citrus sour, sharp tartness. Quite sour, but very smooth. Ends up being filling but still sessionable and tasty,

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Very hazy pale gold - bordering on murky. A goodly amount of visible carbonation leads to a white fizzly head that forms and disappears just as quickly.

S: Lactic and lemony citric tartness with a wheat malt body that has mild husky character. A touch musty as well.

T: Lactic tart to start, which is drying up front. Some more citric acid, though it's less "fruity" lemon than the nose suggested. A wheat body with only a touch of husk on the tongue takes up the middle before succumbing to the finishing tart dryness from the lactic acid at the end. This leaves the impression that almost seems like the finish of fresh lemonade.

M: Light body, no alcohol flavors detectable. This could maybe use a touch more carbonation for the "champagne" character associated with a lot of Berlinerweisses, but is far from flat.

O: A tasty beer, and cool to have it available in a can. But an absolutely outrageous price for the six-pack (or was it actually a four-pack??), at least at each of my regular bottle shops I checked. I'm not going to entirely blame Evil Twin for that – I've heard their offerings get marked up significantly along the way. For that reason, I'm not likely to buy any more. But this is certainly good if someone gives it to you.
