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.

Bottle. I picked up a bomber at the full sail brewery in hood river. I am not well seasoned in the style having only tried a few previously. This had all of the nice dry sourness I expected but it had a faintly metallic taste I found off putting.

Honey like nose. Hazy pale yellow. Very mild lactic and tart character. Much lower than expected. A touch sweet for the finish. ---Rated via ws; sp

ChinoSkillzian (135) - The Hills, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Pours a light yellow with decent head. Nose is bread, white onions, some grain, and a small bit of yeast. Palate had medium acidity, with flavors of grain, lemon, and some light chemical. Medium dry finish, thin body.

PapaSkeetSkeet (799) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Looks like a pee sample with thick, sea-foam (yellowing white) head that fades quickly. Grain silo, lemon, lemon rind, grass, hay, hint of milk. Body is light with thick, fat (opposite of prickly), frothy carbonation. Flavor is tart, grain, lemon meringue pie w/ thin graham cracker crust, hay. Light lingering tartness with grassy note and hint of dry English biscuit. Very refreshing and yummy.

I love Berliner Weisse’s and in Austin, Texas there are only a handful of ones available, and only during the summer time. The one’s made locally usually have fruit in them. I like this, but I prefer them without. I was glad to find this bomber available (the only other bottled berliner here is festina peche), and for only 5 bucks too! Crisp. Tart. Straw and grass flavors and smells. Lactic, but not heavily so. Delicious!

Sweet, earthy/dirty aroma; kind of white wine-like? Apple-ish fruit and sour acidic flavor--again, kind of reminds me of white wine. Sweet flavor, more in finish... probably a little too sweet, relative to the sourness? Not much else malt wise.

"Enjoy by 9.7.12". Oops!

glennmastrange (2145) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. light aromas all around, with straw for the malt, lemon for the hops, soap for the yeast, with faint hints of dried fruit. Head is small, fizzy, white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy, but murky on the last pour, dark amber with a thin amount of small particles. Flavor starts heavily acidic, then the short finish is moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a has a dry finish. Not as tart as other true Berliner Weisse beers, that just makes it easier to pound.

RobertDale (2927) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Shared bottle. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of grain, citrus, and malt. Taste is wheat, lemon, malt, and florals. Decent for the style.

Surprise. This looks, tastes, and smells like the brewers used a Mexican Lager grain and hop bill. It’s not to style but I’m really enjoying it. Even more sessionable than its namesake.
