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.

Tap at Avery. Nice straw golden color, white whispy head. Big lactic sourness in the nose, along with light wheat sweetness. Taste is tart acedic acid, clean and easy though still packs a kick. An American take on the beliner weisse for sure, though suprisingly traditional (for Avery). Love how they give you the syrup and proper glassware as well, make it feel like your in Brussels!

ajnepple (2509) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2014
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.

theothermatt (204) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2014
Taster at Avery. Light lacing. Wheat and funk. Wet and slightly tart. Finishes a bit muddled. Honestly, at $6 for a 3oz taster... I expected a lot more from this guy.

Long: Pours a low haze, straw white with wispy foam. Nose is mild vinegar, fresh dough. Taste is clean and lactic with big soda carbonation. Quite the buttery finish with chardonnay buttery oak flavor. Not quite that sour, more tart and refreshing. Simple with more of a fresh sour taste and nose.

ineedbeer (881) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 26, 2013
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.
