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.

Medium bodied, tangy with some lemon, acid, funk, tangy and funky. Tart and tangy, long lemon and citrus. Lingering acid and funk. Faint tea notes into the finish with a bit of bitterness.

Aroma like smelling salts. GOOD MORNING! The lemony tartness is bracing, but behind it are wheaty funk, pear juice and hibiscus. Fruity tea notes up front in the flavor -- floral leaves, papaya -- but the swallow delivers a whip-crack of lemony acidity, followed by gentle fruity peach and pear sweetness. The tea blend accents the underlying Berliner but doesn’t get in the way. Very nice.
