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.

Bottled. Color is very pale yellow (pale lager almost), little to no lacing. Certainly much lighter fare than I would usually go for. That being said, for a summer beer it’s pretty good. Fo aroma, coriander comes through, very light and lemony. Flavor is slightly sour (nothing too heavy) with the wheatiness coming through for sure. this is very light and very easy drinking.

Bottle shared by Jean-Michael, thanks! Pours a hazy pale yellow with a fizzy white head that disappears on a moment’s notice and only leave some lacing. Nose is of coriander, citrus and carries some sulfur on top of fresh wheat. Taste is fruity, offers fresh wheat again but not much tartness which is a slight bummer. There is again a lot of coriander and some lemony angles. Salt? Almost unnoticeable but it’s in there. Body was light to medium, carbonation just medium and mouthfeel was "wheat smooth". Overall a good albeit simple and non-aggressive take on the style.

Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, yellow session. 02/05/2014. Aroma is salty, lemon, tquilla, spicy hop. Appearance is very pal yellow with a lasting white head. Flavour is salty, wheat grains, some seaweed, and light tart finish. Palate is light is and dryish on the tongue. Decent refreshing beer. Nice example of the style.

This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a slight hazy golden yellow color with a slight transparency to it. Fast carbonation was seen rising to try to fill a one finger soft white foamy head that dissipated to a quarter finger’s worth. The smell was slightly earthy with a sweet vaporous lemon, light graininess/wheat, light coriander, light grape comes through as it warms. The taste was sweet through the wheat and a light lemon and grape combining and then letting in that coriander spice to balance. The salt is there but extremely mild. On the palate, this one sat pretty light and came across extremely sessionable. My tongue does end up feeling a slight sharpness most likely due to the salt but it could also be from the wheat. Overall, my first one by Off Color, and I hope it won’t be my last as I’m hoping my local bottle shop will bring in more. Way to go to Percy’s for getting this!

marcus (6420) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours clear golden with a tiny white head and a strange fruity aroma. There is a salty acidic wheat flavor with a sparkling mouthfeel. Refreshing.

12oz bottle. Pours an extremely hazy light pale yellow color with slight fizzy white head. Aroma is very very grassy with a bit of citrus. Flavor is grassy like a dortmunder, tart but not fruity. Dry and a bit bitter. Slight smokiness to it. Overall, interesting.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Pours slightly hazy golden with small white. Aroma is light tart, medium/light body, lower carbonation, and thin small bubble lacing. Taste is tart, funky, coriander, and salt. Not bad, but I prefer other goses.

Lots of wheat and hay in the nose with some of the coriander coming through. Also kinda barnyard-y. First thing I noticed is the bit of funk and saltiness, which is nice on a hot day. Wheat beer notes flow through and it ends a bit weak, but nice overall!
