BEER INFO

Brewed by:
4 Hands Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.50%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
The name Prussia originates from Frederick the Great. Frederick was trained to brew this very delicate style of beer and later became the King of Prussia. Our interpretation of the Berliner Weisse style is very traditional. Prussia pours a hazy straw hue with a nice clean tart finish. Enjoy alone or with flavored syrup.

look: 2.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a slightly hazed amber with a sliver of beige head. Stays effervescent, near zero head retention & lacing

S: Hay, tartness, slight hints of dirt & that's about it

T: Tartness, hay & dryness up front. Faint golden delicious apple notes as this warms, plus tartness, a little bit of pear too. Finishes dry, tart & fruitty

MF: Light bodied with slight carbonation, slightly wet

Super refreshing & fairly spot on for the style, a bit too clean perhaps

Massive frothy head after the pour does subside after about 60 seconds it almost entirely vanishes. Pale golden straw color and very cloudy. Aroma of pale wheat and pear like aroma. The mouthfeel is fairly carbonated and almost has a soda pop like consistency, but is also fairly brisk and refreshing. Fruity, yet tart and highly carbonated. A summer refresher.

A- Pours a rather un-hazy, pale yellow golden hue in my tall weizen glass. My poor pouring skills on full display as I get a 4 inch head, but realistically, it would have been at least 3 fingers anyway. Good retention and average lacing. Looks to be quite effervescent in the glass.

S- Light, grassy, grainy, and a little bit lemony. A mix between refreshing, very light tartness on the nose and a hint of wheat malt.

T- Starts with a very lightly tart flavor mixed with some spicy wheat flavors. As the drink progresses, the wheat and spices become more prominent. A hint of pepper is detectable. Tartness is somewhat lemony, like in the smell. The end of the drink is rather dry, heavy in wheat and grassy flavors, and very crisp.

M- Highly carbonated and light across the palate. This beer is dead on to the style. A great option for hot summer days like today. Lower alcohol allows repeatable refreshment.

Overall, a very solid, somewhat spicy, American take on a classic European style. Blurs the line between a Berliner and a hefe.
