A larger version of our Berliner Weisse inspired sour wheat beer, ‘Bu Weisse.’ This version is aged on over 2lbs per gallon of Oregon Blackberries in first use Red Wine barrels. Rich fruit character with a balancing acidity and lingering fruit and earth notes.

BiiruBierBeer (500) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2015
Nice berry smell. Taste is nice tart blackberry, a bit of yogurt, and a sharp lactic sourness, but not too heavy. High carbonation, medium creamy body, and mild frothy foam.

Bottle thanks to Bruce. Pours a cloudy purple with small pinkish head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong blackberry, oak, funk, vinous. Thin mouthfeel with tart blackberry, light funk, oak, red wine, very acidic, very good.

brokensail (12479) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle @ home. Thanks, Jer. Milky purple colored beer with some pinkish foam. Tangy berry and a slight sweetness of berry jam. A bit of lemon, mild vinegar, and some grass. Flavor is a little on the acetic side. Lots of lemon, too. Big berry, some jam, and a mild sweetness. Kind of heavy on the straw/grass. Not bad, though.

Lukaduke (2566) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Pours a deep berry red color with lots of floaties and a finger of foam. The nose is a bit strange with some lacto funk, musty berry and a hint of seltzer water. Palate is juicy and delicious with great balance between juicy berry fruit and musty wet barrel funk. Layered of sweetness mingle with funky wet earth and a long tart finish. Delicious!

JBPortland (1095) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 24, 2014
750ml bottle share thanks to Lukaduke! Opens with a small gush. Pours hazy red with floaties and 2 finger head. Nose is fruity berry, horse, funk, musty wood, oak. Taste has delicious jammy blackberry and mixed berry with nicely balanced acidity level that cuts through the sweetness, the fruit is held up by lighy soggy cracker and funky barn hay. Finish is tart semi sweet berries and funky oak, some dusty barn. Great!
