Belgian-Style Ale
Inspired by the sessionable German Berliner Weisse, we followed tradition and allowed the wort to mature overnight with lactobacillus. The next day it was boiled and transferred to the fermentor where we added a Belgian wheat yeast strain famous for fruity flavors and a dry finish. The result is a highly carbonated and refreshingly tart summer beer with a citrusy pineapple aroma. These aromas carry through in to the flavor leading to a dry but tart finish. This unfiltered ale is best consumed fresh- it will not continue to sour with age and is not recommended for cellaring.

Draught at Max & Joes
Pours a hazy blond with a big white head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is very faint, earthy and spicy... enjoyable enough... but there’s not much going on.

The flavor is funky, minerally & dry, there is some pear and some tartness, again what’s there is nice but it’s all really subdued... nothing bright, nothing much to latch on to.

I really wanted to like this a lot... and I liked it enough, but it sort of fell short on many accounts.

Thanks to my awesome wife for beer shopping for me while she was in Colorado. The beer is pale yellow / golden with a soft white head. Aromas of farmhouse funk, lemons and misc. tart citrus, floral hops, and grassy notes. Drinks as much or more like a farmhouse saison than a Berliner. Lemon meringue. Sweet but balanced by a delicate tart character. Lots of flavor and gracefully balanced. Light to medium in body with moderately low carbonation. Solid.

Bottle through trade, hazy yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma of grain and just a little bit of funk. Taste is very similar, little citrus finish, interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, poorly retained ivory head, over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is light lactic acid, hints of lemon, clove, wheat, minimal hop....taste is light lactic acid, hints of lemon, wheat, finishing dry.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation and lactic acid make for a clean finish. This as a beer to drink, is pleasant and quite drinkable. As a style, it is a non entity. Not quite a Berliner Weisse, not really a Saison and certainly not yet a typical Belgian Ale in any style. Perhaps doing the same recipe, leaving it on the Lactobacilli longer, or throwing in some Brettanomyces would get closer towards a Lambic. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

Draft at Falling Rock Tap House, served in a tulip. Nice big pour. Pours a hazy, pale yellow-gold with an inch or so of white head. Notes of wheat, grass, pineapple, lacto, dough, straw, lemongrass, and a little splash of lemon juice. Light-bodied, with a husky, tart mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer. Hit the spot.

Bottle at home. Pour is lightly hazy golden with a big white head and good lacing. Wheaty, lactic, slightly grassy, bready, citric acid, lemon peels, light pepper, and minerally aroma. Taste is big wheat, lacto, lemons, straw, dough, lightly spicy, a touch tart, leaves, and hay with a light spciy/crisp bite on the back-end. Light body with crisp carbonation. Very delicate beer, almost like a cross between a berliner and a saison. Tasty stuff.

TheHOFF43 (2044) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle by RBSG. Pour is cloudy yellow with white head. Lots of grains, minimal aroma. Pretty thin and light palate, which was welcomed on a night of heavy hitting beers. Just not much to this.

Bottle at RBSG. Poured hazy yellow with a white thin head. Aroma light lemon citrus and yeast with a bit of funk. Taste was more lemon slightly tart and a little funk with yeast all around. Palate was thin and drying.
