COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
a.k.a. Chris’s Summer Delight, an unfiltered, refreshingly tart small batch beer conceived by our own Chris Haveman from 50% wheat malt and just a touch of Hersbrucker hops.

22. Pours a slightly hazy burnished dark amber with a loose white head. Pickles and dust on the nose. Creamy medium body, nearly flat. Pickles and dust on the mid palate. In between a mild berliner and a tart one, and doesn’t really gain anything from trying to walk the fence.

gyllenbock (4385) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods - Bowery in August 2012, rating 2100. A bit hazy light golden with a medium, fluffy white head. Aroma of "Pommac" (a Swedish soda), citrus, wheat, and some brett. The taste was not as tart as expected. Still refreshing and drinkable. A descent Berliner Weisse.

robforbes (2055) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2012
pours a clear pale yellow with a small snow white head, and very good lacing. smell is of corn, wheat, a touch of citrus, and malt. taste is sour, grain, some hops, malt in the back, and wheat. ends tart and dry, much better with a little bit of raspberry syrup as a Berliner Weiss is meant to be.

SirLimpsalot (2058) - SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2012
@ Silenzi: ingen större doft men en trevlig frisk syrlig smak med en ton av apelsinsaft. Helt ok som palettränsare. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

improvjock (321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bomber bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity, mostly dominated by lemon, but with hints of grape and pear cider as well. Flavor is light and quite tart, pretty refreshing, though perhaps a tad too sour. Overall pretty good.

poisoneddwarf (1670) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Aroma is wheaty, doughy bread, some lacto. Pours slightly hazy gold with a medium white head that falls into a blanket somewhat quick. Taste is nice and tart, lemony, thirst-quenching, salty. Creamy mouthfeel with a thin body. This is definitely perfect for summer. Seems like it would be better suited in a smaller package, though. The bomber is a bit awkward for carrying around to different summer destinations. A six-pack (hell, a 12 pack) of 12 ouncers would go down good at the beach, I think. Nice one.
