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.

Bomber shared with MrBunn. Pours a hazy golden with explosive resident head. Aromas are sharp and funky, very sweet and pungent. Taste is all downhill... Early taste is decent, but then it’s just apple cider vinegar with pennies soaking in it. Wants to be good, but it’s not. Drain pour.

MrBunn (2510) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Bomber shared with gorditoabd. Pours a massive head with a little gold liquid with a slight haze hiding underneath. Aromas have a bit of grain dust, a little tartness. Flavor is too much grain, but has a nice tart edge in there. Apple juice and tartness with a little metal.

Bottle pours a hazy amber/orange with a thin white head. Scent is tart, duh. Taste is wheaty, tart and citrus. Not my style.

I should have read the fine print. This beer is only 4% alcohol, and it’s tart as ****.

Strykzone (5074) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. There were huge chunks of sediment in the bottom of the bottle which loosened while being rolled. It poured hazed and golden with a two finger head. The aroma was apples with some honey and malt. Apples also in the flavor along with tartness. This reminds me of a cider with the apples. Light malts. This beer had a hard time holding my attention. It had little complexity and not enough to like.

Not quite as strong of a sour as expected, a partial Brett aroma and a weaker sour finish than expected ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brouwerij (942) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with two fingers of coarse white head. Aroma is lactic, sour, wheat. Flavor is tart, lactic, sour apple/pear/cider, sour wheat. Moderate carbonation, light body, and watery texture. Not a good, authentic, or enjoyable berlinerweiss, there are many better options.

stevetheman717 (23) - seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2013
22oz bottle. Copper pour. Light lemon aroma. Crisp bite. Worth a second try on a warm Saturday afternoon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Light amber pour with a full white head. Taste is tart, lactic, and a hint of apple. Not particularly well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alphadelic (1769) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2013
clear golden with sustained head. flat and toasty malts with a hint of chalky, dry apple. in the mouth the sourness has a very vinegary flavour but isn’t all that tart. Which is very strange. tasty but it has plenty of off stuff and a very 2d malt character.
