Jokingly named by Uprightís beer titler Angelo de Ieso after our pal Vasili, head brewer at Laurelwood, this brew is a one-off barrel fermented Berliner-weisse. Itís got a pleasantly funky and aromatic nose with the characteristic sharp sour flavor produced by large amounts of lactic acid bacteria. The Lactovasilios was a small batch blend that will see very limited distribution, but expect to see it at Portlandís most beer-centric spots

Keg at the Green Dragon, PDX, 11/11/14. Lightly hazed golden orange with no head. Nose is tarte citric rinds, lemon dipped straw, light fart, touch musty, peach. Taste comprises light florals, musty wood, tangerine, tarte peach. Medium bodied, fine carbonaton, funky rinse in the close. Decent enough íLinner, but perhaps expected a little more from these guys?

mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
On tap at Saravezaís IIPA Fest to cleanse the palate, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of lightly tart light fruits and quite dry wheat. Flavour is refreshingly tart, never overbearing in tartness, quite yeast, tart and wheaty. Finishes tart, light and wheaty. Very refreshing and well-made for a style I donít normally appreciate.

750ml bottle (thanks Josh!). Hazy yellow color with almost no head. Citrus, grains, and nice and funky. Nice tart finish. I wish I had a shelf full of these!

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle... This beer rocks!Ö Hazy straw-colored ale with a miniscule white head that disappears in a blink. The aroma provides oak and lots of fruity, citric acidity. Light-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is citric and quite sour. Crisp, tart, clean finish. Excellent true-to-style Berliner weisse from a brewery that Iíve quickly grown to love and respect. Bottle generously shared by landhoney! Rufus? Seth? Heís the man!
