COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The backyard of our brewery has a mulberry tree that drops its fruit in the first days of summer. We moved into our building during early summer 2011, tracking a bright purple path through our new home with every laden step. It was then we decided: if mulberry was going to get that deep into the brewery, it probably should get into a beer as well. Stealing a process from Berliners, we let the lactics in a wheated mash sour up to a green apple/lemon level, accentuating the bright side of the mulberry profile. The barley of the malt bill is light continental two row, its kernel’s nuttiness playing to the softer, fruity component of the berries’ flavor, keeping the beer from flying too close to bright. Meant for quaffingg when there is no reason to avoid direct sunlight on balmy Summer days, drink Monkey Chased The Weasel because there is more sun than moon at the top of Summer.

Draft sample at Cranbury BuyRite. Hazy pale gold color. Small creamy white head. Tart citric malt aroma. Notes of sour apple, berry, biscuit and wheat. Sweet at first, then dry in finish. Some grapefruit in finish as well. As suggested, I drank this on a hot, sunny day.

30/V/17 - 1Pt. can @ home - BB: n/a, canned: VI/16/16 (2017-693) Thanks to Tinus for sharing the can!

Clear pale yellow beer, small creamy white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweetish, fruity, bit yeasty. Not very intense. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish, fruity, acidic, lemon juice, lemon rinds. Aftertaste: sourish, fruity, pretty nice, some apricot skin, lemony touch again. Decent, but the mulberry isn’t very convincing (any more?).

16 oz can thanks to Ed’s FBW contest. Aroma is fruity, SweeTarts, sugary, floral, grainy. Pours hazy golden with a collapsing off-white head. Taste is sour (8/10) and acidic, fruity (kind of a raisin and overripe dark fruit character). Interesting.

riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Dont know what a mulberry is, I’m not that smart but this was a cool beer. Big lactic nose, soft berry notes, wheat lemon. Pours hazy murky goldish, thin head. Not the most visually appealing beer but shit. Flavors of big lactic notes, soft berry, wheat, lemon, tangy quenching finish. Nice carbonation. Solid effort. Nice beer.

markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Can courtesy of jcartamdg. Cheers, Jason! Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Nose is wheat, berry, and some tartness. Flavor is similar with wheat, tartness, and big berry presesnce. Berry lingers into the finish with the tartness fading into the background. Light in body and nice overall.

mcberko (18084) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2016
On tap at Augur’s Well, pours a hazy pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of lacto, revealing abbey yogurty quality. Flavour is complex and thick, with shitloads of yogurt, a fairly prominent salty quality, and light tartness. Such a milky quality to it. Wonderfully made. Excellent.

3.4
Leafs93 (2305) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Pours hazy golden rose with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, grass and earthy. Taste is lactic tartness with light sweetness on the finish. Light bodied, with a dry finish. Solid.

N3lson1 (1005) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Drank in a can and on tap at Carton Brewing. This is a decent Berliner Weisse. Wish it had a little bit more going for it to undercut the tartness a bit.

Ferris (15910) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
Draft - Light soap and nice wheat grains. Clear gold with a decent white head. Soapy sweet wheat and a decent finish. Ok.
