Brewed in memory of my Grandparents (Fred and Sarah Hottenroth), this tart German-style Berliner Weisse is as authentic as it gets. We used lactobacillus and a hint of brettanomyces to sour this very unusual, low gravity wheat beer. To cut the tartness for those with sweeter tastes, raspberry or woodruff syrup is a traditional way to sweeten the beer. Almost an extinct style, we hope to help revive the Berliner Weisse in memory of two great people (ABV 3.1%, IBU 2, SRM 2, Format 30L kegs).

@ Blind Tiger. Pour is yellow and hazy. White head faded nearly instantly, leaving nothing left. Mouth is very tart. Reminds me of olde lambic in appearance and its salty sourness. Enough to make you wince. Flavors are sweet green apple, lemon, wheat. Dry and sweet. leaves your mouth dry and cottony like eating too many sour patch kids. Nice, but would of liked to see this bubblier - 3.45

Growler. Aroma quite funky - very yogurty, and is more purely bacterial than tart. Very odd to be honest. Flavor brings more of what is expected, tartness, tart fruits (raspberry, lemon), and wheat, though it does hold onto the odd yogurt /bacteria character a bit, particularly in the finish. Certainly interesting, though I can’t say it’s jiving with me 100%.
