COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boiler Room is a light bodied but surprisingly flavorful sour wheat beer. The sourness is created by souring the wort prior to boiling and fermentation (unlike Belgian-style sours which sour during fermentation and have active bacteria in them when packaged). The nose of the beer has a light Hersbrucker hop note and a distinct funkiness. The taste is sweet malt quickly going into a tart body and finish. The sour and malt flavors balance well all the way through creating a very refreshing beverage, akin to drinking a tart lemonade or limeade. For a beer with just over 3.5%, it creates a big experience for the palate. Traditionally this beer is enjoyed either straight or with raspberry or woodruff syrup to sweeten it (and turn it red or green, respectively).

Draft at Big Hops Huebner. Wow, never though I’d see a Texas weisse. This is sort of a transition version, intended, I would think, to introduce people to the sour. With that in mind, it’s very mildly sour, not really tart, with a nice lemon aroma and taste. Very easy to drink. Meets its goal.

Had on draft at Hay Merchant. a cloudy golden color. The aroma is light apple, grainy, doughy. The tartness is thirst quenching. Tart lemons, apple, doughy.

Interesting. Hazy straw color, weak head.Tart aroma, berries, barnyard, grassiness. Much more graininess in the taste than I expected, more sourness with a dry bite in the end

MartinT (8855) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Lactic and citric acidity merge in this dry and tart Berliner-style Weisse, offering quite the refreshing brew for those highly humid summer afternoons.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the clear golden.
-This one lacks carbonation for the style. Then again, it was from the tap, so maybe the bottle is more carbonated.
-Straw is also found in the nose.
-This is perfectly quenching.

On tap at The Avenue Pub.

22 oz. bottle from my Secret Santa. Thanks man! Pours a clear golden with almost no head. Aroma of lemons, cereal grain, mild yogurt and sour candy. Flavor is tart, crisp, with lemony and mild sweet grain notes. Crisp body, lively carbonation. Finishes quick and tart. Nice beer.
