Style: Berliner Weisse

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.80%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Troublesome's meaner cousin will flail your tongue as hard as he can, but being such a little guy, you'll probably just pucker a bit. Spawned through an overnight kettle souring with our house lactobacillus culture, the wort emerges furious at what we did to it. Then, just because, we pitch a saison yeast and allow it to free rise to it's further distain. It comes out angrier than... uh, angrier than... well, something really angry. But at 3.8% ABV there's no reason for you to be too afraid.

IBU 3ish?

12oz bottle, enjoy by 24 Jul 18. Cloudy and pale straw colored ale with a bubbly white head that fades to a foam. Aroma is lemongrass, bread yeast, and wheat. Flavors are tart and sour with notes of lemon, wheat, yeast, and sour white grape. Light body, lively carbonation, finishing tart and sour. This was interesting for me. A lot going on and I can't say it truly worked for me.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a JK Snörkel glass. BBD 1 Oct 17.

Appearance: Slightly hazy yellow/gold colored body with a fizzy bubble head.

Aroma: All tart and sour, you know what you're getting into!

Taste/Mouthfeel: Bright tartness on the tongue followed by, and ending with, a dry and clean finish.

Overall: Tart, sour and tasty! This one is really done well and you can put down plenty of these at ease.

It pours bright yellow, hazy and with a small head. Lots of tart notes on the nose. Yogurt-like and floral aromas. The taste is well balanced between the tart and sweet. Medium body.

This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a light yellow transparent color with a fast rising carbonation seen rising to fill a quickly dissipating foamy to bubbly head. There wasn’t any lacing. The smell had the sour wheat up front, slightly sticky, crisp lemon runs into blend nicely. Tart to sweet grassiness runs underneath. The taste was mainly sour with a nice level of tart and balanced by a dry crisp dry lemon and somewhat sweet in the aftertaste leading into a quick dry sweet sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionable aspect to it. Carbonation hits my tongue nicely. Tartness hits dryly on my tongue as expected. Overall, I say this was a nice Berliner Weisse. Everything fits, I’d have this again.
