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.

Aroma - Faintly sweet with a little tart background. Not overpoweringly aromatic Appearance - Yellow and hazy. Typical coloring of an unfiltered wheat. Taste - One of the absolute best sour beers Iíve ever had. It is very sessionable, has a tart and sour taste to it that isnít overpowering at all with a sweet undertone. Very light feeling for a beer of this much flavor. The wheat is present but is covered up by the Bret. Palate - feels great going down. Has perfect carbonation, and a small head on it that dissipates quickly. Overall - I had this at the Avery Tap Takeover, and was super impressed. Was served as a 10oz draft pour in a 12oz belgian style glass. Asked the waitress what the best sour they had was and she recommended this. Iím glad she did! Iíll be going back, and I hope they still have a little left over!

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

Tasty, tap room exclusive. Barn yard, musty aroma. Biting sourness, almost like a lambic at the first sip. Probably the most different Avery brew Iíve ever had, I was really happy to see them attempt a sour.

Nice vinous sour aroma. Taste is more tart than a standard Berliner. Carbonation is a bit light but a nice full flavored Berliner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at brewery. Aroma is full of wheat with a light citrus and moderate lactic aroma. Light fruitiness and some barnyard funk. Pours a pale, cloudy straw yellow with a medium thick white head with average retention and moderate lacing. Flavor is very wheat forward with a light lactic acidity. Faint funkiness a with some nice tropical fruit and citrus notes. Low but present bitterness. Mouthfeel is light bodied but very silky and soft with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a really nice Berliner with a bit less acidity than some of the others out there. A nice way to start my trip to Denver.

On tap at Avery. Golden appearance with a white head. Aroma of lemon zest, tart fruits, mild sour notes, rustic yeast and wheat malts. Similar flavor, sour and tart with light herbs and a touch of spice. Light body, crisp and smooth with a light puckering feel. Pretty refreshing.
