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.

Tap @ Cask cafe. Hazy apricot with foamy head- it’s actually luminous in three light. Nice tart aroma with light citrus. Flavor follows. Really digging this on a nice spring day.

jandd1983 (3050) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Sampled at the W&C Beer Fest 2015. It poured a hazy orange color with a small white head. The aroma was of tart fruits, malts, citrus hops, herbs and a some tea. The taste was similar to the aroma with more tartness, citrus and tea. Nice.

seymour (1623) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tasted on draft at 2015 St. Louis Microfest in a willi becher glass. It poured a murky burnished golden colour with deep white foam of spritzy little bubbles, sheets of Belgian lace. Aromas of German sweet grains, slight yogurty lactobacillus tartness. Flavour was WAY more sour than expected, a really surprising contrast. No longer any malt presence at all, a little citrus zest, lending a sparkling lemonade effect. Ultralight body, effervescent Champagne-like carbonation. Very tasty and refreshing.

Tap at Perennial. Hazy pink-orange pour with a white head. Lightly tart, light fruit, with a hint of tea. Excellent.
