COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian wheat beer aged in white wine barrels and allowed to become very slightly sour. This is a wonderful session beer for those of the “sour and funky” persuasion.

Cloudy yellow with a fizzy white head. Big green apple and lemon aroma and taste with a very smooth bready citrus finish.

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom in Portland, OR. Dark orange pour with a white head. Aroma of lemon, Earth, and white wine. The flavor is mostly tart yet not overwhelming. Easily drinkable. Nice sour!

A hoppy berliner weisse, indeed! Pours a bright golden with a white head, the aroma is citrus wheat and is fantastic! The hops they used play perfectly with the tartness and finishes with a pleasant off dry bitter hop note. Crisp, light and drinkable, I really wish this was available in packaging, highly recommended for the style.

This beer has a bright red apple color. It has a slightly sour flavor. It is almost like a cider but has a really good sourness to it. I really really like it. Anderson valley is one of my favorite breweries. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours translucent gold with a 3 finger foamy white head. Earthy aroma suggesting citrus, pineapple and maybe brett. Med body. Rely earthy; still saying bretty, citrus. Like Berliner Weiss in a strong way. Extremely tasty.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2013
On tap at HOTB. Mild lactic tart aroma with carbonic gaseousness. Pale golden clear with creamy white lacing head. Medium-light body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts with nice tart lactic-carbonic acidity and some wheat flavor. Mild funk. Tart and light astringent finish with lactic tang after. Little watery but nice flavor overall.

Draft at SB. Go, Fal, go! Man, this beer is rad. Pours a cloudy dark gold with a loose and sudsy white head. Bit tangy nose, hard to pin down, showing faint hints of candied lemons and grapefruits, a bit of sweet pickle, a bit of wet grassy funk, I dunno, it’s a beautiful and refreshing tartness as soon as you get a whiff. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, bread crusts, a bit of candied lemon, some mild sweet pickle, maybe a soft and subdued balsamic note way in the background. Tough to dial in precisely. Really gorgeous, and seems very singular. Not a lot of other beers around exactly like this one; maybe none. These days, that’s saying something--and this beer is not only new and different in its way, but it’s also made very well. This one could be an all-the-time beer, at least for sourheads.

Sampled from the tap at Hopcat. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice white wind note with tart light fruits and a wheat backbone. Flavor is also white wine forward with a light tart fruit note and some light grains backing.

hayduke (3552) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 4, 2012
On draft at The Local Beer Bar in Eureka, CA. This came in the glass a cloudy golden color. White head. Good lacing. Nose of wheat, citrus hops and some spicess. Medium in body. Smooth mouthfeel. As it warms you get lots of flavor... with fruit and citrus. Dry and sour finish. Very nice.

jbruner (2807) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2014
Pours a clear golden yellow with big fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is nice wheat malt with a hint of sour funk and musty grapes. Taste is more toward the funk and a nice balance of sour and wheat. Good carbonation, solid beer.
