COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most brewers spend a lot of time and effort keeping lactobacillus out of their breweries; it was the first thing we brought in (it still has to stay in the corner though). We blend together two different beers to make Troublesome. The first is a somewhat uninteresting wheat beer and the second is an overly acidic & funky beer fermented solely with lactobacillus. We blend the two beers together with coriander and salt at the tail end of fermentation to create a mild, lemony tartness and a fuller sensation of mouthfeel. And yes, itís hard to make.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2014
From the 11/2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was musty - in a bad off way - with coriander and phenol. The flavor was musty, bred dough, phenol, egg white and a bit of coriander. Long egg white and must finish. Medium body. Not good.

Bork (334) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Less than great attempt with a mild lemony acidity, a rather weak saltiness on the finish, and a flat and thin palate that disappoints somewhat.

c_lee_burton (118) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a light straw gold. Smells of wheat and sour fruit. Nice balance between some sour fruit berries, wheat creaminess, and a little salty. Easy to drink and has a nice feel on the tongue.

snoworsummer (2455) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2014
From a bottle. Pours opaque gold with a thick, foamy, bubbly white head. Tastes a little salty, dry, like sweet lemon, doughy malt. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet dough, lemon, wheat, salty.

bytemesis (3514) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle. Ours crystal clear golden, medium white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is light, sour mash, lemon, wheat, coriander. Flavor is very light sour, lots of coriander, a bit of lemon, wheat, a bit of banana. Light body, minimal salt. Fair for style, not distinctive above a typical hef.

DuffMan (7030) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle (love the label). Very pale yellow, modest head that rapidly recedes to a surface skein. Sweaty, wheaty aroma, hints of lemon, hints of pig manure. Light spritzy palate, wheaty with hints of lemon, lightly tart finish. Refreshing.

BMMillsy (1524) - Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle shared with a friend at World of Beer in Gainesville. Pours hazy yellowish white colored with a creamy white head on top. Aroma of bananas, clove, yeasty funk, pears, coriander. As expected here. Flavor follows with sweet bananas, yeast, corander, a bit of honey. Mouthfeel is heavy for the style with big rich flavors alongside adequate to plus carbonation. Overall a decent rendition of the style--described as a Witbier, but here looks to be a Gose. As a Witbier, it falls a little short. As a Gose, itís better than others Iíve had. I would drink it again.

Crisp, refreshing, and a tiny bit sour. Lots of nice spice and a slick aftertaste. Weak body.

bigguns22 (709) - Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Gose and sours are becoming one of this hop heads favorites. This is a good beer with a lot to talk about but we will stick to the high lights. A perfect cloudy yellow color that is summer all the way. A tall crisp white bubbly head that disapates quickly. Aroma is wheat,lemon a touch sour. A lite freshing beer that begins sour then wheat with a lemon tart finsh.

Bottle to lager glass. Pour is clear golden yellow. Aroma is coriander and lemon. Taste is mildly sour, tiny bit salty, and lemony. Finish is smooth with mild bite. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
