BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bruery Terreux
California, United States
brueryterreux.com

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
At his core, Frederick H. embodies some of the elements you’d expect in a Berliner Weisse-style beer, such as a tart flavor profile from lactobacillus, a hint of brettanomyces and traditionally low ABV. He gets a little racy though, and gains even more funky and earthy notes from house cultures and fermentation in our oak foeders at Bruery Terreux. After nature takes its course, Frederick H. emerges with a bright, refreshing body, palate-cleansing tartness and au naturel rawness.

4.15/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the bottle into a berliner style Terreux glass.

Bright peach orange colored body, with a bit opaque quality to it as wel. Small bubbly collar, fleeting as expected with a little bit of large white bubble collar. Pretty solid and nice looking berliner.

Better than your average aroma. Chewy malt depth thick with a touch of woody character. Flirts with bakery dough freshness maybe even a small bit of clove. Slight touch of powdery chalk though, otherwise quite good, and low on the lemon to orange fruit quality.

Palate really hits the spot. Rich flavors of tart citrus slightly, mixing with a big earthy finish. Mid palate hits with orange sour acidity, and a thick round oaky flavor. Finishes particularly bready and toasty, lots of bakery and malt dense flavors on the aftertaste. While the palate has a bit woody edge, it's mouthfeel is a bit more subdued and simple.

A very tasty straightforward berliner, could go for more of this for sure.

Bottle from Bevmo, in Carmel, CA.
Pours hazy light yellow with a flash of white heads, smells like funky sour apple cider, tastes like tart to sweet bubbly apple sauce, light and sweet. An excellent straight up Berliner Weiss.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear honey hue with a thin white head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of tart aggressively toasted wheat, garbage, malt sweetness as well with some almost sweet apple juice. Flashes of butric acid as well.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with sweeter apple juice, wheat, heavy acidity, more butric acid. Really hideously done.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, body is thin, flemmy.

O - Overall this was a very poorly done beer, should have never have been done.

Split with rudzud, 2016
Decent fizzy foamy bubbly head fades semi quickly, a bit of lacing, crystal clear honey orange color

Nose has some bad like garbage, butric acid I think, trash and vomit, a little band-aid plastic thing, toasted oak and wheat, sour messy acid funk, appley fruit thing too

Taste is about the same maybe slighly better, more butric acid, trash vomit thing, sour wheat thing, lemony cake batter too, oak thing, little slimy, green apply and a little plastic.

Mouth is whatever, this is just terrible

Overall wtf, why

A: on point like Kelly Kapowski

O: a perfect dream where you wake up and Natalie Portman already has eggs on the stove top

Poured into a pint glass at 37 degrees. A hard pour produced a one finger head. The head is one finger and fizzy. The head quickly dissipated, typical of this style. The color is pale amber with light golden hues. The clarity of the beer is hazy. Carbonation is abundant in this beer.

The aromas in the beer are wheat, citrus, wood, and yeast.

Tart lemons, wheat, wood, yeast, and earth encompass the flavors.

The mouthfeel of the beer is tart, crisp, and clean. The body of the beer is light, high carbonation, and a medium finish.

The beer has pucker power, yet refreshing and crisp. A perfect beer on a hot summer night with bbq.

Tart tart tart! I'm not familiar with this style of beer but it reminded me of a Wild/Farmhouse ale I had a few years back although this is more palatable. I'm not a huge fan of sours but this has enough citrus n white grape to balance out the flavors. Orange in color, highly carbonated so the head dissipates almost immediately. Almost overly tart but it grows on you. Overall nice beer.

First had Terreux Frederick H. poured from a 25.4-oz. bomber into a footless tulip. This beer is absolutely on style in appearance, and nearly overwhelmingly tart.

Copper and cloudy with tonnes of fast rising carbonation. Topped with 2 fingers of off white, creamy head.

Smells of oak barrels, sour, funk, light fruitiness like melons white grapes and Asian pears. Overall its a very funk forward beer.

Impeccably sour and funky like a good, dry geueze, the barrel age comes right though with woody notes, granny smith apple tartness, dusty wardrobe and cellar.

Medium, acidic body, it feels much heavier than the ABV. Lots of champagne like carbonation.

Got this one from Bangkok, drinking it tonight at home. An amazing brew. I would love to get my hands on more from the series. Nov 10th, 2017.

Not a bad beer. Yellow to orangish color. Very tart not sure i had beer this tart. White grapes pretty evident in this beer. Almost too sour to finish
