BEER INFO

Brewed by:
WeldWerks Brewing Co.

Style: Berliner Weisse

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Freshly squeezed key limes, vanilla beans, and just a hint of graham cracker pair perfectly with the tart wheat base beer in our Key Lime Pie Berliner. We colored a bit outside of the lines to recreate our favorite summer dessert, adding over 250 lbs of key limes for the signature citrus character, lactose and vanilla beans for the pie filling, and just a hint of graham cracker for the crust. Tart, creamy, complex, and dangerously drinkable KLPB is the perfect way to kick off the summer!

Appearance: Arrives hazy with a lemonade color; the modest head hangs for a bit and leaves spotty lace

Smell: Key lime and graham cracker aromatics

Taste: Tart, with the key lime elements appearing first; the graham cracker is clearly discernible through the middle; moderately tart finish

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with crisp carbonation

Overall: A great mouthfeel and quite refreshing but I have had other examples of the style that did a better job capturing the key lime pie

Great summer beer. I’m a sucker for anything lime and sour. Nose is salty ocean air and crisp clean lime and citrus. Taste is tart salty graham cracker notes with coconut, vanilla and as natural a lime flavor I’ve had in beer. Nothing tastes the least bit artificial.

Appearance: hazy, pale golden – exactly what you’d expect from a Berliner Weisse (wheat beer). The head fades very quickly to a collar of white micro-fine bubbles.

Aroma: this beer smells like gas station hand soap. The lime and graham combine to smell like air freshener fakeness.

Flavor: this beer tastes like soap or eating potpourri. The lime comes through in the finish and very much resembles Anheuser Busch’s Tequiza from yesteryear. This beer’s flavors divorce each other far more than creating any flavor synergy. The lime is too prominent, and the graham is “chemically” tasting like that cheap powder hand soap from elementary school bathrooms.

Mouthfeel: medium-medium; “heavy” considering the 3.8% abv.

Overall: this beer was a miss. The flavors intrigued me, but the two are out of balance. Too much lime and off-tasting graham combine to produce a beer worth skipping. The stink is that I can’t buy Juicy Bits at any given time, because Weldwerks is brewing this instead?!
