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.

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.

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 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.

I was hoping for a little more funkiness, but this follows the mild Berliner Weisse, perhaps with a bit more body and tartness. Picked this up at the brewery with the parents in 2013.
