Boiler Room Berliner WeisseBoiler Room Berliner Weisse
Notes: Boiler Room is a light bodied but surprisingly flavorful sour wheat beer. The sourness is created by souring the wort prior to boiling and fermentation (unlike Belgian-style sours which sour during fermentation and have active bacteria in them when packaged). The nose of the beer has a light Hersbrucker hop note and a distinct funkiness. The taste is sweet malt quickly going into a tart body and finish. The sour and malt flavors balance well all the way through creating a very refreshing beverage, akin to drinking a tart lemonade or limeade. For a beer with just over 3.5%, it creates a big experience for the palate.

Traditionally this beer is enjoyed either straight or with raspberry or woodruff syrup to sweeten it (and turn it red or green, respectively).

From 4th of July weekend, 2015. Thanks to leftpaw for bringing it out, can always use more Texas brews on my scorecard.

Pours a slightly brighter than average berliner weisse yellow with 1/2" white head. Aroma of sour mash wheat and lemon.

Taste is standard berliner weisse stuff, sour wheat lively carbonation, lemon tartness, easily crushable but delivering plenty on the flavor profile. Little hit of sourdough out of it. I can dig it.

Carbonation is done well, good crisp effect to it all. Really can't understand some of the failure scores. This is pretty well done in the conventional mode and there is nothing off about it. It's a well made beer. It's traditional, and its damn good. The format isn't super friendly, but I would love to see something like this in a standard 4/6 pack 12 oz bottle or can. Perfect day at the beach has a berliner, a gose, pale ale, ipa that should be staples on any given day. This went over great on a weekend of a bunch of beers, much less every other one that was bigger, but rarely better.

Tastes like a classic true to style Berliner Weisse. Tart and lactic. After taste like I threw up in my mouth.

Very sour, kinda like lemonade. I didnt see a ABV on the label but decided to give it a try as St Arnold has not disapointed me until now. I have enjoyed many Weiss Biers in Germany but this is an imposer. I would have been betteroff with lemonade and a shot of vodka. 5 sips and down the drain it went

I was completely blown away when I tried this beer! Didn't know it's style or read up on it; just tried it. Never had a beer with a sour taste before. The brewer then mixed some raspberry syrup in it, and there was another taste combo that I had to wrap my head around! I definitely will get this brew again and experiment!

On tap at St. Arnold's, purple color because we got blueberry flavoring in ours (like a traditional Berliner according to the bartender). Lots of lacing, refreshing mildly sour beer with almost no smell. The feel is light and sessionable. Strangest looking beer I've had, reminds me of a lambic but a little more ale-y if that makes sense. Cheers.

Draft from Logie's in College Station, TX. I've had this multiple times at the brewery and I order it every now and then when I see it on tap.

No head, no lacing, pale, clear straw color. Taste and smell are of tart lemon, but it isn't a lemonade-type flavor. Rather unique. An interesting flavor but a good representation of the style, even if the style isn't my absolute favorite. Well-worth a drink if you're into Berliners
