Yeah, no joke, just gushingly great. I've had about 4-5 Berlin Berlinerweisses (plus 2 domestics) and this is way beyond my favorite of this style. Feel and taste are epic with regards to expressing the saltiness. This could be the sole reason I love Steel String, but it isn't. Gitcherself some.

A short-lived rocky white head leaves no lace on a Brigand chalice. The color is golden, cloudy SRM 5.

The aroma is surprisingly sour with notes of sour milk. Dusty with faint pine and grapefruit hops as well as dehydrated apricots.

Tartness is strong on entry, but quickly followed by equal strength of sweetness. Notes of apricot and floral lemon. Fruitiness is a primary characteristic before a long modest finish. Slight warming brings out orange juice.

Light body with a dusty texture, lively carbonation, and light alcohol.

This is a solid Berliner Weiss with enough character to be interesting. It was refreshing and pairs well with casual conversation. One can easily consume a 500 ml bottle in a single sitting.

I was there on Saturday and this is a great beer and take on the style. I took a growler to a party and the host loved it too. Steel String continues to improve and now impresses on a regular basis. Grateful to have it so close to my house.

@ Steel String

Cloudy orange color under a frothy ring of a head. Light aromas of wort, mellow floral hops, and some lemon. Surprisingly full flavored with lemon tea through the middle, sourness, and a pleasant grainy sweetness lingering. Dry, crisp, and easy to drink. Simple and tasty.
