Our first stab at using souring bacterial techniques at DB for this rare style of beer. Lactobacilli was added to this brew to provide a tart snappy sourness. Straw in color, light bodied with a tart finish.

I’ve had this a couple of times, one at the brewpub in Roseland and once at 622N in Blacksburg. Tasted neat and with syrups (blood orange or peach). This is typical Berliner Weiss with yeasty sourness and a very acid finish. The blood orange syrup that they had at Roseland was really good and matched the beer perfectly. Very nice job on this one gents.

GBBF Day 1. Cask. Lightly hazy pale gold beer, tiny white head. Palate is light and dry and crisp. Nice light lemony sourness, offset by mildly sweet floral flavours. Thin dry finish produces a mellow sherbet linger. Decent.
