Berliner Weisse has enjoyed the kind of resurgence enjoyed by Gose, Flanders Red, and other once lesser-known old-world beer styles, and it’s seen some eclectic interpretations. Bell’s Oarsman certainly makes its own place in that field. It’s both well-done and unusual. It definitely looks pretty. Pale gold color. Tight, uniform head with perfectly white bubbles. Effervescent and cloudy. Lacing on the glass. Grainy aromas with methane, light citrus, and vinegar. The taste drifts more toward malty sweet than tart and acetic. Corn and white bread flavors. There is some citrus and vinegar; lingering sourness. The feel is lively, but doesn’t seem as crisp with the muted sourness. At 4%, a person could go through quite a bit of this, especially if they’re not into mouth-puckering sourness.

Looks like apple juice. Smells a bit of overripe produce, wet grains, light citrus. Lighter mouthfeel, low carbonation. Sweetness reminds of mead - lightly tart on finish.

Flaska från Mikkellers webshop. Fin frisk, aningen vetesyrlig, med citrus och lite jästkaraktär. Smaken är blekare och ganska anonym men iaf mjuk och len men lätt syrlighet. Ok, men som ofta med USveteöl väl slätstruket.

@ Basunen 16-5-7: ganska ordinär med små toner av vete. Lite humle men i det stora hela ganska diskret.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

A very light, but flavorful wheat beer. While the wheat still takes center stage, there is a decidedly citrus note to the beer as well. A well done sessioable beer that pairs well with food.
