COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Really average. Not a lot going on. Maybe needs some age or maybe just a bland session beer.

750ml bottle. The claim is a Berliner Wiesse base with lacto and fermented with sacc, and it has no adjuncts, treatments or fruit / spice addition (thank you!). Funny enough there is a very distinct lemon rind / oil flavor and aroma that comes through (not pineapple) the wheat and pale malt base; phenols are medium to low; esters are low. Malt is somewhat starchy. Tart and sour (as in sour cream). Highly attenuated, medium acid, medium to high effervescence. Some dried flower petal notes along with the more typical sulfur and silt that I get from their yeast strain (though perhaps this is a different strain from their regular, regardless of that, I still get that sulfur character). As with most of the their beer, this one is coarse and husky, but itís the oily lemon rind film that is left in the mouth that is most off-putting. It doesnít ruin the experience, only diminishes it. More solid than the other recent beers Iíve tried from them.

Tap at the brewery - not exactly a traditional version - apparently brewed with lacto and a witbier yeast - turbid gold - nose is wheaty, densely yeasty, only lightly acidic - mouthfeel is nice - soft and frothy carbonation - moderstely berliner in character - mild lactic tartness, soft, tangy wheat flavors - a bit of lemon - light savory notes - dusty, basement yeast character - finish is bready, with lingering tartness - simple, nontraditional, but not too bad.

On tap at Colorado Plus poured a cloudy yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, yeast and light citrus with a smooth dry finish.
