COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A tartuffe (tar-TOOF) is a hypocrite who feigns religious virtue. Hereticís Tartuffe is our take on a Berliner Weisse-style ale. Our head brewer has a thing for this beer style. He loves the tart, refreshing character that comes from using lots of wheat malt and a multi-day sour mash. Try it by itself or mit schuss, the traditional German addition of raspberry or woodruff syrup. Either way, enjoying life is a true virtue.

Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy light gold with a creamy/foamy white head. Canít get much aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly tart wheat. Building up a bit of lemon sour. Nice, but certainly not on the extreme end of the style. Maybe gets a bit yeasty in the finish.

Golden and clear. Aroma is super grainy and taste really surprise with extra sour acidity. Nice and sessionable. Malty grains still shining at the end.

Some what pale golden color. But the nose is nothing. So dead. But the mouth is super sour, with horse blanket and hay. Well balanced but lacking in the nose. Good stuff

Tap at the Upper Lip A: Semi clear gold with a thin white head. N: Lemon zest, lime, cracker, salt, toast, melon, grapefruit rind touch of sweet-tart, sulfur and minerality. Green apple. T: Lightly sweet; pleasantly tart. M: Light body, no alcohol, prickly carbonation. O: Refreshing Berliner Weisse. Very clean, with a gose-like saltiness.

VinegarStroke (381) - Napa, Alabama, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Clear with no head. Fresh pale malt nose. Clean. Very sour acid palate. Tight and quenching. Lots of citrus flavor. Well made beer. Refreshing not challenging.

varanid99 (1006) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2016
Pale yellow pour, fizzy, big white head. Aroma is citrus, sour milk. Taste is wheaty, slightly tart, but overwhelmingly a fairly neutral mineral water taste. Not a style I love, Iím trying but they just keep disappointing me, so Iím not a great judge

joeneugs (5751) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 30, 2016
Bottle from the brewery. It pours a clear pale yellow color with a fizzy white head that disappears. The aroma has wheat and very lightly toasted grains. Hints of lemon and herbs. The flavor has some lightly herbal hops, strong wheat and very light tartness. The body is a bit dull for the style, but still somewhat refreshing. A bit more lemony tartness and a lower gravity would probably help this one.

drjoeng (857) - SINGAPORE - APR 18, 2016
4.8%ABV. Berliner Weisse. Tapped out gold. 4ļSRM. Nose is strongly acrid with a very strong phenolic character. I still call this the aroma of crushed ants with the acrid tang of formic acid hitting you high in the nose. There may be some wheaty, floury aromas in the tail end as well. Mouthfeel is watery. Palate is pale malt with wheaty flavors of water biscuit, raw peanuts, raw wheat flour, raw dough. No hops. Overall this drinks like it looks, light and airy.

willisread (2455) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 29, 2016
Tap at DC Hama. Very light wheat nose with some light lemon and crackery malts. Body is very light with slightly watery mouthfeel. Very refreshing and easily drinkable by the gallon. Nice light tartness on the palate that keeps you coming back for more. Very simple beer, but solid for the style. Very enjoyable.

a foamy white head dies back pretty quickly leaving little lacing... the brew is traditional looking very pale straw golden that sorta glows with a light haze. Nose is tart and shows plenty of wheat character... Flavor is nicely lactic.... softened a bit by the malt profile... lemony and a bit of cracker.... Body may be a touch high for the style... could use more carbonation. I liked this one.... The label says a sour mash is used... More complex than my feeble palate can describe.
