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.

4.18/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a classy champagne bottle, complete with cork and cage.

Appearance: Pale straw, cloudy, fairly effervescent.

Smell: Tart green apples, with a fair amount of bready, yeasty, doughy stuff in the background.

Taste: Sour dry pucker with a clean finish. Cracker and sour apples.

Mouthfeel: Light and clean, cleansing.

Overall: Perfectly balanced. Fresh and clean with just enough bread, cracker, and sour apple to make it interesting. Seems like a good pairing would be any cheese with penicillin, a good crisp pale cracker, and a slice of granny smith or mulberries.
