COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Collaboration with Hopleaf! We started by brewing a traditional German Berlinerweiss—which Napolean’s men called the Champagne of the North—then tweaked it with a homemade tea blend to impart a slight apricot hue and botanical aromatics.

jgb9348 (5096) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Very hazy golden and light copper coloured body with a thinnish, very fast-dying off-white head. Aroma of sour grapes, pale wheat, lemons, a touch of yeast and a pungent metallic note. Light-bodied; Very sour flavour up front with wheat, grass, lemons, limes and a touch of brett coming through, all with a light bready and yeast flavour at the end. Aftertaste is sour and fresh all at the same time, but very refreshing...however not complex at all nor impressive. Overall, quite a bit underwhelming with only the sour and fresh wheat notes being nice - no real depth and not much fruitiness either. I’m sure this has such high ratings due to the reputation of Perennial, but this is a decent Berliner Weiss at best. I sampled this from draught in a thirty-two ounce growler fill from Whole Foods in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia earlier today on 31-May-2015 for US$10,00 / 32oz sampled at home in Washington.

Dr_Fellini (828) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a beautiful slightly hazy light orangish pinkish peach color with a fizzy off white head. Aroma is a mild fruity blend with a touch of tartness. Flavor has an excellent berliner weisse tartness with citrus, tropical fruits, touch of tea. Overall a wonderful beer and imo underrated on this site.

Zymurgeist2 (1280) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Part of a stellar tasting lineup at K&L Wines in Redwood City. Moderate low tartness and the tea was noticeable, but did not add too much.

deekyn (1366) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Light hazy golden apricot with 2 fingers of fluffy head. Nose is all Berliner. Tart and metallic sort of citrus/Mellon thing going on. Spritzy sparkly mf. Light and drinkable with a nice balance of thin tartness and mild sweetness. Some herbal notes as well. Taste is simple tart Berliner, tangelo and mandarin lead the way. Palate is light herbs and a footy character. Some fruity tea to end. Nice enough but muddled.
