COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So stood President John F. Kennedy at the steps of the Rathaus SchŲneberg, preparing to deliver what would become his iconic speech in front of 450,000 free citizens of West Berlin. "Today, in the world of freedom, the proudest boast is Ich bin ein Berliner!" A half-century later, our country embroiled in bitter political debate over the most trivial of ideals, we present this wood-aged Berliner Weisse as a tribute to the world of Freedom and an olive branch of collaboration to all those who canít seem to get along. For those who wish to drink it, "Lassí sie nach San Antonio kommen" Ė Let them come to San Antonio! Ingredients: Pilsen malt, malted wheat; traditional German hops; top-fermenting yeast; lactobacillus; natural, limestone-filtered, Edwards Aquifer H2O; jelly-filled donuts.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle-Purchased at brewery in May 2014 Pours bright hazy yellow with a very small fizzy white head that was gone very quick. Lots of carbonation, almost looks like a soft drink, Nose is woody, slightly sour, lite smoke, almost like beachwood or toasted oak maybe a wine barrel. flavors are very tart, not overly sour, lite grains, lots of yeasty qualities. body is lite and very thin but acceptible for this style. carbonation is sharp up front but dies off after the sip. Solid Berliner.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
This is a very pale, bright yellow/orange colored beer with a this white head and a pretty watery/wet appearance overall. Itís pretty murky and somewhat cloudy in clarity, much like a lemonade. The aroma is sweet and green with hints of mint. Itís slightly sour with a touch of yeast. Itís not really well carbonated, pretty flat from what I thought Iíd expect. The flavor is also sour and very Belgian-like in sourness. Itís a very sour-forward ale that immerses you in an almost apple-like fruitiness. I wouldnít normally expect such fruity sourness from such a light-colored beer, but this one delivers quite a punch. It looks like lemonade, and the palate/flavor really throws you off. Imagine what would be left behind after fermenting all of the sugar out of a sour lemonade. Take that and mix it with some fermented apple cider and the result would likely be something like this.

Salmoniform (989) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy straw hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is lemon, wheat, pepper, lacto. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a light body and good carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a tart sour following and CO2 sharpness in the finish. Overall this is a really nice sour saison-esque Berliner.
