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.

Draft at Memphis Taproom. Pours a cloudy amber-orange with some white head and lace. Notes of lemon, wheat, light mango and stone fruit. Mild tartness for the style.

750 ml bottle.

Pours a slightly pink-hued. Tart lactic nose, some fruit and berry aromas. Pretty clean, straight-ahead Berlinner weisse base layered with tropical notes. It’s good enough, and very hard to point to any flaws, but nor am I feeling any over-the-top love here. After a glass I’ve had more than enough tartness and I’m not quite sure what to do with the remainder of the bottle.

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.

A nice refreshing, somewhat tart beer. Pours a bright orange with a thick white head. Smells of tea and tropical fruit. Taste has tea, citrus, lemon, grapefruit, green apple, tart peach, and cilantro in the finish. Had on tap at the Monks Kettle.
