A really good summer beer. Easy drinking with a slight sour finish. It seemed to me like their were so many different flavors. I definitely tasted some lemon along with a few others I couldn't figure out.

A bit heavy on the mouthfeel for a berliner, but I think that was actually is a positive. Tart, full bodied and complex even for the lower abv. Recommended

Beating the heat of summer becomes a little more bearable with the folks at Braxton nearby. Their crisp, clean and refreshing Berlinerweiss-style ale helps by stripping the thirst with its premiere lactic acidity and with a hint of tropical flavor for added personality and charm.

Bright straw and gleaning with a racy stream of bubbles, the French troops' aply named "Champagne of the North" catches the eye with a short-lived but stark white skirt of foam. Tangy citrus, cider and berry tease the nose while tightening the jaws and inducing eye squinting behavior from the scent along. Short sweetness of warhead candy, sour patch kid and light wheat offer a glimpse of malt before the brunt of sourness is unleashed.

As the malts dissolve swiftly on the tongue, the full sour flavor of lactobacillus shares its lemon, lime, crabapple, under-ripe berry and sour white grape character in a compelling yet intimidating level of acidity. Clean, crisp and refreshing, the fruit flavors find favor in a light brine, wine, cider and kiwi kind of way.

Acidity replaces bitterness in the wheat beer's balance as the light-bodied and bone dry texture trends spicy with carbonic bite and a pep of seltzer. A quick aftertaste of whole wheat and tropical passionfruit remain in a brief echo after the brazen acidity as lifted.
