Boiler Room Berliner WeisseBoiler Room Berliner Weisse
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Saint Arnold Brewing Company
Texas, United States | website

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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).

Pours out a slightly hazed golden straw color with a solid head. Smells tart, lactic, and grainy. Taste is dry, tart, refreshing, lightly grainy, crackery. Taste is lightly sweet upfront, but overall perfectly balanced with tartness and dryness. Cracker-like cereal. Bright wheat. Clean yeast. Seriously, the cleanest beer that St. Arnold could ever hope to produce. Mouthfeel has a surprising weight of body, considering the 3.7%. I'mimpressed. This is not the best Berliner weisse, but certainly my favorite St. Arnold beer (I'm usually not a fan of theirs). I want to drink this all the damned time. I'd be curious to have this "mit schuss."

Taste is honey, grass, and sour mix. Not the most complex that I have had in the style, but it is tart and refreshing. Nice summery and sessionable beer. I would get this again, but I have others that I prefer in the style.

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
