750mL bottle from LambicPentameter (thanks). Bottled 9/8/16. Served in a Wicked Weed snifter.

Pours a hazy, golden amber with almost two fingers of quickly dissipating white head. The initial froth crackles away, leaving a few scattered wisps, a thin belt and a couple tiny dots of lace.

Aromas of soured wheat, earthy funk, vague tea and some faint overripe lemon.

Tastes of kettle soured grain, old wet hay, a slight earthy tea quality and a mere hint of unsweetened peach lemonade. Though initially seeming dull the more I drink the more fruit I perceive. This goes down incredibly easily.

Light body with sparkling carbonation. Soured grains remain prominent in the finish but the impressions of lemon peach tea linger.

Crane makes an impressively complex weiss. My first few sips of Tea Weiss seemed lackluster but by the end of the bottle I was getting some nice flavored tea notes.

Pours the color of a well steeped green tea with a thin, fizzy white head. Not much head retention, but that is to be expected. Aroma is tea, hibiscus, and lemon with some biscuit malts behind. The tea is quite nice and well done without being over powering. Flavor profile opens with an iced tea flavor note, before a slightly sour finish. Not much tongue twisting sour action, just enough to ring the tea out of the tongue, but not beat it up. Mouth feel has a little fizz to it, but is otherwise medium in consistency and smooth. Overall, a very fun little beer. At 4.10%, it drinks incredibly smooth with light hearted notes of tea and a sour twist.

Served in a 12oz Crane snifter. Draft.

Pours an orange bronze, nice clarity and a frothy white head (but it fades to nothing quickly). Aroma is a delicious blend of salinity, savory fruity tea aromatics, with underlying lemon and cucumber. Nice bite of tart on the tongue, crisp and clean with interestingly full flavor. Hard to describe, but this beer is seriously killer.

Pours an effervescent amber with fast falling beige colored head. Zero head retention & lacing

S: Sweet berries & plenty of them

T: Tart berry, some lemon present as well up front. More tart berry as this warms & a little cherry sourness. Finishes with raspberry tartness along with a little lemon sweet tart

MF: Light body, slight carbonation

Refreshing, tart & drinkable

Almost like orange Kool aid, with nice glows and a lacey head.

Smells of sour berries, sour patch kids, hibiscus and yeast.

A perfect wave of hibiscus, tea leaf, passion fruit, citrus, mango, and sour patch kids/warhead assaults the palate like an angry swarm of bees. Love it.

Heavily carbonated, semi dry, resinous.

Just a damn delicious beer. Get it.
