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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Draft from the taproom. Hazy, slightly orange-tinted light gold pour. Nose of lemony wheat and tropical fruits. Taste adds a lovely tartness and a bit of a tea-like quality. Wish I would have had about 4 pints of this wonderfully refreshing beer.

A wonderfully balanced Berliner, definitely better on draft vs bottled. Would definitely get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

luttonm (4440) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Guest tap at Urban Family, Seattle. Red grapefruit juice, hazed, small foam. Tart aroma. Clean tart red fruit, really tasty and inviting. Round fruity tart, tea and Berliner makes sense. Refreshing bright, modest clean sour. Very well done.

tmoreau (3506) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2016
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a Czech-pils glass showing a clear, light peach tea look, with a modest layer of white head foam that quickly diminished to a thin ring & film, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was lightly floral, tart, and esters as stone fruit, and a touch of citrus. Light bodied, and highly carbonated, with a seltzery nature to the effervescence. Some tartness persisted, but the fruitiness was somewhat washed out in the flavor, and the texture was a bit thin. Fairly tasty, but lacked the necessary pizzazz for the style.

dresden (1350) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Great fruity aroma from a juicy orange golden looking beer. F flavour is tart lemon, very acidic but very fruity and light funk. Delicious.

edgallow (3477) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Sampler pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus, tea, herbs and malts. Taste is tart, herbal, citrus and grain.

neepsntatties (1696) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2016
On tap at Belmont Station. Colour...like a hazy rose wine with a thick white head. Nose...loads of generslised tea notes as well as hibiscus, rose petal and lemon zest. Palate...full, frothy, lively and bright with an expectedly tart feel and puckery zest. The tanginess is very much present and there’s hints of grain on the back palate. The finish is quick and dry.

dinkle50 (1278) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Cloudy orange pour with a single finger head. Tart aroma. Taste is tart as well and just explodes with blood orange and apricot. Very refreshing and fizzy. Lots of fruit in this. Really tasty. Medium bodied.

JaBier (6657) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber pour with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, fruit and herbs. Malty flavor with sour fruit before an herbal finish.

ryecatcher (1290) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2016
750 mL bottle. Pours a hazy pinkish color, medium whitish head, decent retention. Normally I’d say beer should never be pink, but this gets it’s color from actual fruit and doesn’t taste like Kool-Aid, so I’ll let the pink thing slide. Nose is funky yeast, acidic and fruity (berries, sour apples and quince). Mouth is tart and fruity (noticing a pattern here?), creamy mouth feel, then a sweetness (which is probably more a perceived reaction by my tastebuds attempting to counter the sour acidic nature), berries, green apple, faint guava, green mango, grass, bread dough, subtle hop bitterness underlying. Corbin at Willowbrook Binny’s was quite amped about this one and recommended it to me, and while I’m not a huge Berlinerweisse fan (or much of a Perennial fan to be honest), I’m glad I went with his suggestion. Very nice.
