COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Boulder Weisse echoes the traditional flavor profile while adding a few Avery twists to the brewing method. This inaugural batch was aged in oak barrels for six months with a rustic Brettanomyces yeast strain and finished at 5% ABV. We present our homage in a customary goblet with your choice of a handmade syrup from fruit typically grown in Colorado - peach and cherry.

Azand222 (170) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Tap house special at Avery's. Light yellow pour with a thin white head. A really sour smell, very pungent. The taste is very mild but a lot of sour flavor present. Overall not one of my favorite sours, not strong enough.

For the style, it was well done. Sour notes with wheat. Cloudy yellow gold color with a white head. Smooth mouthfeel with a pucker factor. Moderate carbonation. Its hard for me to differentiate this from sours. The wheat component sets it apart. Refreshing but not an everyday beer. Sour and grainy flavors. Little to no hops presence.

HighlandsBeerGuy (21) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2013
I had this in the taproom in a 10oz pour. It was hazy, straw yellow color with little to no head. It was tart and citrusy. It was suggested to add peach syrup, which gave the beer a different twist bit subtle enough to keep the flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at the brewery. Pours hazy golden with an off-white head. Aroma of wheat, a light tartness, some pale malts, and a little bitterness. Flavor the same with a tart finish. Average texture. A solid Berliner Weisse.
