Huge thanks to yourefragile for sharing this growler. Served in a cervoise. The nose is fairly tart with a bit of wheat in the background, but mostly sourness and light stone fruits. Flavor is similar. It’s quite tart, and unfortunately doesn’t have much dry wheat character like a great Berliner. Instead, it’s more of an American Wild, though a good one at that.

@ zeitgeist 16-3-5: lätt syrlig med toner av citrus och blommor. En ok frisk och trevlig eftersmak.

phaleslu (8969) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Draft at the brewery, served in a flight. Pours a cloudy pale white wine color with no head. A bit acetic, with vinegar, lemon juice, white grape skins, sourdough, yogurt, and wheat. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a dry, acetic mouthfeel. A bit much for the style.
