COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The backyard of our brewery has a mulberry tree that drops its fruit in the first days of summer. We moved into our building during early summer 2011, tracking a bright purple path through our new home with every laden step. It was then we decided: if mulberry was going to get that deep into the brewery, it probably should get into a beer as well. Stealing a process from Berliners, we let the lactics in a wheated mash sour up to a green apple/lemon level, accentuating the bright side of the mulberry profile. The barley of the malt bill is light continental two row, its kernel’s nuttiness playing to the softer, fruity component of the berries’ flavor, keeping the beer from flying too close to bright. Meant for quaffingg when there is no reason to avoid direct sunlight on balmy Summer days, drink Monkey Chased The Weasel because there is more sun than moon at the top of Summer.

Pours hazy golden rose with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, grass and earthy. Taste is lactic tartness with light sweetness on the finish. Light bodied, with a dry finish. Solid.

Drank in a can and on tap at Carton Brewing. This is a decent Berliner Weisse. Wish it had a little bit more going for it to undercut the tartness a bit.

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ. Pours a slightly cloudy, dark golden straw color with a half finger white foam head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace left behind. Slightly funky aroma with a faint lactic/cheesy presnce. Kind of bland really with subtle spice, citrus rind and bread. A bit sulfuric as well but the nose is kind of one dimensional and weak. Medium bodid with some tart, puckering acidity up front that’s countered by citrus fruit and sourdough bread notes. Flavors fall off mid-palate and there is an odd metallic adjunct flavor that overpowers. Doesn’t have traditional characteristics associated with the style. Lacking in bready yeast, fullness in body, lactic funk and wheat beer notes. Kind of bland really with some lactic funk and sour lemon acidity up front.

Koelschtrinker (16789) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 12, 2015
Runder, deutlich saurer Antrunk. Dabei ist von den Maulbeeren wenig erkennbar. Die Säure steigert sich leicht, süffig, ab dem hinteren Mittelteil mit deutlich bitteren Noten. Säuerlicher, trocken herber Abgang. Gut! 2/11/11/11/5/11

Can from SJ. Definite funk aroma...almost egg like. Notes of lemon, wheat and fruit. Tart finish. It was okay for the style.
