BEER INFO

Brewed by:
August Schell Brewing Company
Minnesota, United States
schellsbrewery.com

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Extremely pale yellow in color with a slight haze and a large, creamy, snow-white foam head. This beer is rather light on the palate and very dry. A lively carbonation accentuates the refreshingly tart acidity. Expect an interesting mix of fruity flavors reminiscent of ripe lemons and apple juice with a touch of spice and a subtle brett character.

Yeah, I did it. A perfect 5.

A fresh bottle, cork pops with gusto. Highly carbonated, pours an opaque gold with aroma of lemons and cereal grain. Lots of suspended yeast, banana and lemon and wheat flavor permeate a nicely balance acidic beer. It's dry yet thick, effervescent and robust. I could happily drink this all day.

This feels like a traditional Berlinerwiess, not overly acidic or fruited like so many other offerings. Just clean, happy to drink beer.

Schells- Keep it crafty down there in New Ulm.

Bottled June '13

A= Thus baby pours a nice light straw yellow color with a finger of active bubbly head that leaves little lacing.

S= The smell is amazing! Nice bright lemony wheat character A nice straw grassy character that reminds me of a prairie. Ideal for a Berliner in my opinion.

T= Tasty! A nice bright lemon character with a grassy prairie character. This is a perfect Berliner in my opinion.

M= Bright and shiny

O= This is the best beer I've had in a while and the best Berliner I've had to date. I really don't know if this beer could be any better. A perfect summer beer and a perfect Berliner in my opinion. I don't even like too many Schell's beers. They are usually a one and done company for me. I buy things to try their new beers and then never really try it again. This beer was different. A day after trying it I bought all of it I could find. Try this beer and buy a lot. They need to keep this one.
