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.

Mellow an super delicious. Nice soft and grainy. Creamy. Wonderful mild sour lemon wheat. Big wheat presance .Rated way too low.

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

Awesome sour beer Berliner Weisse style. Just the right amount of acidic bite in the middle, nice clean wheat finish. Seriously smells like mown grass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow! I have no reason why this is scoring so low! Excellent beer (drank right after mowing the lawn which I’m sure helped). Aroma was nice. Tart wheat, lemon and hints of vinegar. Pour was a nice dirty murky gold with a one finger white head. Taste was near perfect. Nice and tart with musty blanket, lemon and vinegar flavors bursting through. Nice strong biting carbonation that unfortunately left a little too quickly. Still, however, this was a great beer that I will buy again if I see it.

22oz bottle. Orange color, very active fizz. Strong aroma of malted wheat. Tart flavor, nice lacto character. Hearty wheat flavor lasts past the tartness leaves the palate. (3686)

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!

bhensonb (11130) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Tap at OBF. Pours hazy gold with a disappearing head. Mild sour fruit aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is sour with something like lemon and light pitted fruit. The sour is firm, but not super strong. There’s a touch of bread in the finish.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2012
$4.50 of goodness. Deep hazy gold with a soft thin white head. Wheaty nose with lemony tart notes. Some pie crust. Lemon zest. Custard. Light palate. Nice.

Bomber marked down cheap. Like three bucks. Clear golden pour with a big pillowy white head. Nice cap of foam. Aroma was lemony with notes of honey and earthy malt. Slightly sweet. Flavors were lightly tart, mild lemon peel, touch of dusty cardboard. Nice carbonation, lively mouthfeel with a light bittersweet finish. Why the low ratings? I thought this was very refreshing and nice. I really like this style.

Sweet tangy aromas. Pours a brilliant golden with a dense thin white head decent lacing. Refreshing soft with a touch lemon, grass and tang/tart in the back end wish this was in cans during the summer
