A contemporary take on the traditional sour wheat style from the German capital. Pilsner and Wheat malt are soured overnight in the kettle before being part fermented with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. Tart, sour and refreshing with a spritzy carbonation and the added complexity of ‘Brett’ appearing as the beer ages…. as they say in these parts “it’ll make your teeth laugh”

On tap at Archive Beer Boutique 210614. Looks a whole lot like a cider, very pale and thin with a white head. Almost tastes like a sour cider, not as sour as I expected.

mattyhennessy (253) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2014
Pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Sour, but not as sour as some. There is an obvious grape aroma and flavour, some wood and white wine. The low abv is noticeable, as the flavour rounds out very quickly

Tap at cbc14. Pours clear light yellow with white head. Aroma is a lots of white grapes. Almost as conserved peach. Some bretts. Taste is sour but al the grapy sweetness makes it really drinkable. Really nice beer.
