COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

on tap @ Devils Backbone / Roseland VA --- Clear straw color, white head, broken curtain of lace. Taste is brisk sour lemon, grass, and heavy fizz. Very basic, not malty enough to notice. The sour taste isn’t like a Gose, more like an unsweetended shandy. Doesn’t work very well.

On tap at the brewery. Tart, tangy, lemon, grass. There seem to be a lot of these bland beers on tap at the brewery at the moment.

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.

Aromas show some cheesiness, socks annd funk. A bit of acidity, lemonn, straw and flaked wheat. Initial is a bit acidic,n twangy lactic acidity up front, touch of stomach acid, gentle bread, flaked wheat. Straw, gentle fruit into the middle. Some funk, dryness, more yogurty feel. A bit deadened, dull overall.
