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.

This is a damn good berliner weisse. Much more controlled than the new hotness out of Florida, the fruit never overwhelms and the acidity stays in check. The fruit is present but not dominant, and there is a great wheatiness to it. Solid all around n

Pours a hazy pinkish gold with no head. Aroma of wheat, lemons, lacto, slight berry note but very slight. Taste follows, not much of a berry presence but it’s still a great Berliner!

Can thanks to Dmac. Pours a hazy gold and pinkish hue with small frothy white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is tart citrus, oak, and berries. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart lemon and berry with light dry finish. Very good.

I dig this. Berries, lemon, wheat, light sulfur, and crackers. Taste is quite tart and a little fruity and very minerally. Like sucking on crushed stone and berry warheads.... interesting.

On tap at Whole Foods. Pours a light peach color with white head. Pear, green apple, mulberries. Very tart and lightly sweet. Light, crisp body. The mulberry flavor takes away from an otherwise excellent Berliner Weisse.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 On tap at the brewery. Pours pink grapefruit. Aroma and taste of lemon grapefruit and sour/tart. Mouthfeel starts out very tart and bitter but calms down as you drink more. I really like this beer or maybe I like it more because my wife loves it! It’s a balanced berliner Weiss. Very well done Carton!!

Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours fairly clear orange with a small white head. The aroma has tart lemon and some orange peel. The taste is very tart lemon and very dry. A really enjoyable yet simple berliner Weiss.
