"Some people paint, some sing, others write ... I brew." - Daniel Carey

A few times a year, we will cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, unplugged. Always handcrafted, the bottle you hold is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again.

Napoleon hailed this tart beer style "the Champagne of the North." A lively and elegant masterpiece this Berliner Weiss is a kaleidoscope of fresh flavor. Barrel fermentation, Pinot Grigio, Riesling grapes and Wisconsin White Wheat are bottle fermented with five proprietary yeast strains. A connoisseur’s rare jewel both spirited and subtle, enjoy your sparkling toast under summer stars.

Thanks For Supporting The Arts.

GABF. Intense sour wheat. Fructose sharp but the fruit is generic and it hard to pick individual flavours out. Different. Very tasty!

Bottle at home thanks to Ughsmash for this one ...Pale yellow with light bubbles ... light lemon hop ... tart front and a little lemon ...little grape ...little sweetness... but this was a bit disapointing as its no where near sharp enough for what i expected.

Koelschtrinker (17734) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Im leicht kräuterartigen Antrunk ist die Säuerlichkeit zurückhaltend und weich gesetzt, keinesfalls Spitz, was aber auch einen Eindruck von Muffigkeit hervorruft. So sind auch erkennbare süße (Karamell-) Noten, die die Säuerlichkeit zusätzlich schmälern. Erfrischend ist das Bier trotzdem, auch im Abgang sind die trockenen Kräuternoten parat. Gute, aber nicht unbedingt authentische Berliner Weisse. 11/11/11/9/11/11

Bottle shared at Craft Clerko, 06/06/13 - thanks to Nathan the Brigadier. Hazed orange amber with a thin off white head that dissipates. Nose is soured fruit, orange, lemon rind, grape skins, damp wood, over ripened apples. Taste comprises light sour tones, cherry stones, orange rind, musty, grape skin. Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, subtle tarte puckerings in the finale. A well constructed BW.
