3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Brazilian Tasting”. Pours a milky, very hazy milky lemon golden with zero head. Nose is super lactic Berliner weisse which is prefer less, spoiled lemon yoghurt, mineral, acidic, lemon & apricot acidity. Taste is lemon acidic lactic, mineral, very lactic Berliner with no complexity, quite puckering, apple, very musty,… Lighter lactic body, lower carbonation. I am not the biggest fan of these kinds of very heavily lactic Berliner’s but this is pretty decent, drinks easily. I have had sourdough bread a few times but I don’t see much flavor similarity here. I haven’t had it only a few times.

Bottle at home. Pours very pale and bland looking, hazy. Sour nose with yeast, bread, wood, vinegar. Taste is sour, crispy carbonation, yeast, grapes, lemon, vinegar. Light bodied. Sour is in fact an excellent style for low ABV beers.

My Bottom Line:
This bready and tart Berliner-style Weisse has plenty of citrusy angles to build a great lunchtime quaff.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam dissipates into the cloudy pale straw white.
-From the taster’s point of view, it’s not obvious how the sourdough yeast helped this brew. In any case, the end result is as compelling as it is refreshing, and that’s what matters!
-Peachy fruitiness appears alongside the citrusy acidity.
-The mouthfeel/carbonation could be tighter.
-Lacto notes are well balanced with the citrusy components.

Keg at Bath Brew House. Lovely refreshing sour - easy drinking with medium sourness. Little citrus, hint of apple, plenty brett. Hint of sweetness on the end. Great after a steam bath.
