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.

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!

Draft at Jerry’s. Pale yellow with big, foamy, white head, decent legs / Crisp, elegant, lightly tart nose of lemon, bread, straw, funk / Medium body, lightly tart, fat & resinous with soft carbonation, salty, fruity but mostly dry / Flavors of wheat, lemon, pear, resin, straw / Interesting, with that fat quality approaching a soave or pinot gris.

Pretty fancy brew. Interesting balance between tarty, sour, salty, and crisp. A really nice gose.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Draft at Maria’s. Pours a hazed straw with a thin dissipating head. Nose is low yogurt, citrus and wheat. Fairly clean and faintly tart. On tasting, subtle acidity that grows as it warms. Low coriander and a minerally fullness to it. Very nice beer overall.

A: Hazy and pale in color with some small head to it. Sparkling. S: Tart and spicy, spicy like a Belgian type beer. Hints of some of the coriander and lemon maybe some saltiness. Pleasing aroma. T: Tart upfront with coriander coming quickly after some pepper and salt notes that go with a light tart lemon character. Really refreshing summer type beer. Again faint notes of some Belgian character. M: Medium, nicely carbonated. Not overbearingly tart and not really sweet either. O: Similar to a Berliner Weiss, would drink during the summer.

Pours hazy gold into a tumbler. White head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Bit O-Honey aromas. Thick with sweet honey and coriander upfront turning to dry wheat in the lasting finish.

Homer321 (1961) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bottle from a trade. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with minimal white head that just barely forms a small ring around the glass. Very salty and funky smell. It was initially very perfumey but that faded quickly. Taste is slightly tart with a lite saltiness. No real significant coriander flavor. very refreshing. Just a tad undercarbonated, but otherwise a great beer. Thanks whoever sent me this!
