COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer needs a siren, so we brewed this beer to ring in another toasty Los Angeles summer. This bright, refreshingly tart wheat beer is our ode to the traditional German Berliner Weisse, which boasts some substantial pucker power. Take much to tradition? Ask for yours served with Woodruff or raspberry syrup. You may call this beer “Summer in a Glass” if you’d like.

snoworsummer (3131) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Draft at Urge, served with raspberry syrup. Pours hazy yellowish pink with a thin, fizzy light pink head and some lacing. Smells like wheat, earthy malt, lactic sourness, grapes, lemon, and raspberry. Tastes tart, lactic, like lemon, grapes, raspberry, earthy hops, wheat, and dry malt. Light body and medium carbonation.

bhensonb (12306) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light gold with a white head. Aroma of mild fruit and citrus sour. Near med body. Flavor is mildly lightly sour/tart. Almost like drinking a tart cider. Clearly a sour, but the "pucker power" seems missing.

marcus (7452) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 20, 2015
On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours White gold with a nice white head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a light fruit flavor over a pleasantly sour wheat base with a tart finish. Easy to drink if you like sour.

(En fût au Main Tap Tavern): Le blé s’exprime avec férocité et s’agence parfaitement avec l’acidité résonnante et l’arrière-goût citronné. Concoction habile et hautement engouffrable.

Bacterial (2164) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2015
Pale yellow pour at the brewery. Slightly hazy. Slight white head. Bready nose with a hint of lemon. Decent taste. The server asked me if I liked sour beers and I replied, the sourer the better. Somehow that set my expectation up for a nice tart Berliner. That isn’t what I got, but by the end of the glass, I was enjoying the nice zesty lemon character. A little heavy on the bread notes. Lightly tart. Would have liked it with the Woodruff, but didn’t know that was an option until I read the description above. Thanks, ratebeer - you are the best!

BeerandBlues2 (10691) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Tap at Brother’s Provisions. Pours hazy yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is earthy wheat malt, lactic sourness, grapes and lemon. Flavor is tart and lactic lemon and grapes, earthy hops and light bitterness with wheat malt and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Draft on tap at Aces & Ales Tenaya (Las Vegas, NV). Nice to be back. Pours a cloudy yellow pour, a darker glow and dulled body in this light shows a bit of flab, bready slurry with frothy whitish head atop. A potent layer sticks around fairly well, frothy film sticks and laces fairly well. Aromas show some dry grainy malts, bready malts and tart lactic zing. Lemony life, a bit of rind and some juicy citric sourness. Gentle yogurt, mellow grainy malts show softened sweetness. Initial is lighter and more effervescent than you’d think. Some peppy sourness attacks the palate, more lemon and citric zing, faint white grape meets bready malts, dry grain and straw. Bubbly and effervescent this pops pretty well. Backend is dry, slick and lactic. Lingering yogurty, acidic jabs. Some dryness. While it’s not the most complex it’s tasty, a firm sourness and quite drinkable. Definitely not the prettiest but it offers a pretty good Berliner overall. Nice.

deekyn (1364) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Nice hazy pour with 1 finger quickly dissipating micro-bubbled head. Simple yeasty, lightly malty and citrus nose. Very light and clean. Light and tart with a thinner palate. Bright mouthfeel gives way to a slightly sticky end. The taste is dominated by lemon and orange juice. Citrusy to be sure. Palate is yeasty and crackery malts. End is yeasty and citrusy. Nice Berliner. A little too sweet and sticky.

"Straw yellow cloudy pour, light body and flavor even for the style. But what is there is good, tart lemo and wheat on the nose and palate. Finishese clean and tart. Refreshing."
