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.

At Bar with friend, suggested this for me given I enjoy acidity / sour beer. LOVED it! Have asked for this beer in several other craft beer bars unsuccessfully. Sour aroma....moderate carbination....crisp citrus fuzz on the tongue. Clean finish. Again....I really enjoyed this beer. Have been served Sofie as a comparable. Sofie seemed sweeter.

teromous (53) - - SEP 2, 2014
Appearance: Massive, massive amounts of foam when I carefully barely even pour out a few ounces. Be very careful with this one! It was very hard to pour, but it left an insanely huge head that had the consistency of meringue pie topping. The body is a very pale yellow color with boatloads of carbonation. It looks like Niagara falls upside down in my glass. Aroma: I get a scent of lemons. The label says "Brewed with Coriander" but it doesn’t come through. Taste: I get a light tartness at first, followed by a very present papery cardboard flavor. Similar to the aroma, no detectable presence of coriander. The bottle also says "Wheat Beer" and I’m not really picking up much flavor. It’s just a very average tasting Gose. Palate: It has a decent palate but it is very bland and highly carbonated to the point that it foams up in the mouth while drinking it, making it a bit hard to taste the beer while it’s foaming up. Overall: I really didn’t find this beer all that appealing. It wasn’t that refreshing to me, it didn’t have a nice wheat flavor, the lemon flavor is there for a second but it’s gone, and it tasted oxidized to me. The over-carbonation was the real killer here. I don’t recommend it and wouldn’t drink it again. It’s not to the point where I would pour it out or anything...it just doesn’t have a lot going for it.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
On tap @ Brouwers. Hazed golden colored pour with a white head. The nose is kind of briny and salty. Some lemon and lime. Doughy bread and biscuit. Hints of cracker and grass. A bit of tropical fruits as well. Flavor has a nice tartness and citric acidity. A lot of lime and lemon juice. Sour fruits. Slight bready sweetness and a fair amount of sea salt.

ttroha (267) - Americus, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle from Hop City. Appearance is cloudy amber with frothy white head and a nice white lacing. Aroma of lemons and coriander. Taste is very carbonated - almost like champagne - but with hint of coriander, lemon and herbs. Very sweet taste/tart taste with nice finish. Refreshing beer and pretty decent.

kappldav123 (5000) - GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass light yellow, small head. Malty sourish aroma. Starts mild malty, light sourish. Light fruity lemon notes. Finish again milder, still light fruity. Okay.
