COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bitterness and gravity vary batch to batch.

On tap at White Labs. Slightly disappointed as I was expecting more of the berliner character of this yeast. Pours with a crystal clear fuller golden hued body with a small white head that fades to a ring. Aromas are estery, isoamyl acetate, lightly lactic, clean, grassy, lightly tart. Flavors are very clean with some isoamyl acetate, yeasty, grainy, malty. Good wheat, but not a berliner sadly. Asking about the fermentation schedule and recipe, the lactic acid bacteria apparently didn’t have the time or conditions (for lactobacillus at least, hop and gravity wise) to thrive. Kind of a shame as I like 630 quite a bit more the Wyeast’s Berliner blend (even though I like a lot of Wyeast’s yeast strains over their White Labs counter parts).
