Una delle migliori berliner weisse che ho mai assaggiato: acidula al punto giusto ma non tagliente, fruttata e fresca. Un lavoro di classe. Kernel non delude mai!!!

Beeracolyte (45) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Piwo pi?em w Browariacie i jest to wersja z zawarto?ci? alkoholu 3,1%. Piana w?a?ciwie natychmiast po nalaniu redukuje si? do ’belgijskiej koronki’, m?tne, jasno ?ó?ta barwa. W aromacie bardzo kwa?ne nawet lekko szczypi?ce w nosie. Aromat jest orze?wiaj?cy, ?wie?y. Brak ko?skiej derki, stajni, to taki ’miastowy’ sour. Po lekkim ogrzaniu wychodzi przyjemna miodowo??. Pierwsze wra?enie po pierwszym ?yku - bardzo z?o?one piwo. Ogólnie piwo jest bardzo kwa?ne, cierpko?? d?ugo utrzymuje si? na j?zyku. Piwo w zasadzie opiera si? na aftertaiscie. Dopiero po prze?kni?ciu uruchamia si? bogaty wachlarz smaków. Z pocz?tku wodniste, ?rednio nasycone piwo z czasem prze?kni?cia przechodzi w buchaj?c?, cytrusow? kwa?no??. Przewija si? te? delikatna trawiasto??, by? mo?e wynikaj?ca z angielskich chmieli. Sama goryczka jest jak na sour przysta?o, bardzo niska. Piwo bardzo orze?wiaj?ce i jeszcze bardziej kwa?ne. God save the Kernel.

flying_pig (1059) - SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
*I tried the 3.1% version*
330ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (Ł2.80):
Fairly interesting & despite not being optimistic going in, this one was fairly easy drinking for the style & worked well for me seeing as I’m not usually a huge fan of sour beers. Obviously it was sour but it didn’t overpower & the background fruits balanced thigns out a little. Another decent beer from The Kernel although probably not one I’d personally pick up again.

ElDesmadre (1942) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle at Browariat. Citric acid, apple vinegar and rice wafers. Sour beyond comprehension, my throat was ripped to shreds after finishing just a half of this. I’m not saying this is bad beer, but one that that has taught me to avoid this style in the foreseeable future.
