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, it’s hard to make.

Sampled at esbls. Thanks, Ben. So clear with just a little gold hue. An interesting aroma. Salty and funky with some fruit. Softer feel and flavor to start. Salt and coriander flavors. Yeast, funk. The funk is more tasted when inhaling. Interesting stuff.

It starts with a pure wheat taste. The salt comes through in the aftertaste. Mostly it comes across as a wheat.

Poured a slightly cloudy gold from bottle. Mostly lemons and hints of spice and smoke. Pretty good.

blklab2007 (2027) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle poured a lighter golden in color with a ring of white foam. Aroma has light wheat, green herbs, and an interesting hint of floral goodness. Mouth feel is light with good carbonation. Flavor again has light wheat, underlying wet herbs, mild bitterness, and grains. The whole thing is so light and if I had to guess a style it would have been kolsch.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Murky yellow color with moderate head. Nice bold sour aroma. Flavor is much less interesting. The sour fades and is more of a complementary note. This would normally be cool, but there's nothing else in the beer to take center stage. The rest is a typical uninteresting wheat beer. It's decent, and finely crafted, but just too tame for me. Would love to see the brewer take some more chances with this beer.

RussianDragon (564) - - DEC 17, 2014
On tap at Frontera Grill, Chicago. Pours a hazy translucent golden light orange with active carbonation. White pillowy head settles to the edge quickly. Aroma is wheat, coriander and a certain salt complexity. Flavor is same with emphasis on wheat, with salt and vegetal aspects in the distance. Tastes more like a wheat than a gose, but nice overall. Active carbonation, sweet mild salt finish.

Clear straw pour with no head. Light malty nose. Mild and semisweet with a hint of Brett. Light lovely sour finish.

HonusWagner (1632) - Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Weird beer with a somewhat farmhousey nose, grainy, a bit of lactic tartness and the accompanying "lemony" character, a bit musty. Taste is lightly sweet cereal graininess, light tartness, crisp and vibrant with a bit of a coriander spiciness. Good beer, quite drinkable.

airrick2003 (564) - Louisiana, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Appearance: slightly darker than average gold color with white specs in it, pours with a small white head that dissipates quickly Aroma: bread, funk, lemon, caramel, smells very good, complex Taste: wheat grain, some light tartness and faint sourness, lemon, Palate: light mouthfeel, fluffy, lively carbonation, minimal aftertaste Overall: very awesome beer, it's subtle but has a lot of complexity, not overly sour or tart or funky but all those aspects are there, drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stoned99 (212) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Aroma: Wheat, bread, lemon. App: clear pale blonde with nice frothy head and some lacing, Taste and Palate: Full body, fizzy, abrupt finish. salty with some coriander flavor. Overall: good combination between a wheat beer and a gose but not an exceptional blend.
