COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This reverse engineered, wild Berliner-Style Weisse is a German-style sour that is very pale in color and is the lightest of all the German wheat beers. The unique combination of wild yeast and lactic fermentation yields a beer that is acidic, lemony-tart, highly attenuated and very light bodied. The carbonation of this Berliner Weisse is high, and hop rates are very low.

On tap at The Collective Tap, pours a clear pale copper with a small white head. Aroma is rather bland on the nose - just some very lightly tart fruits. Flavour is very tart, with very citric lemony notes. Not very complex or much body, but decently constructed. Okay.
