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).

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.
