A tartuffe (tar-TOOF) is a hypocrite who feigns religious virtue. Heretics Tartuffe is our take on a Berliner Weisse-style ale. Our head brewer has a thing for this beer style. He loves the tart, refreshing character that comes from using lots of wheat malt and a multi-day sour mash. Try it by itself or mit schuss, the traditional German addition of raspberry or woodruff syrup. Either way, enjoying life is a true virtue.

hopscotch (10945) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Draft... Pours clear and yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is too subtle, wheaty and soapy. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. The flavor is moderately acidic with subtle graininess. Crisp, clean refreshing finish.

Golden and clear. Aroma is super grainy and taste really surprise with extra sour acidity. Nice and sessionable. Malty grains still shining at the end.

TimE (5535) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2016
Some what pale golden color. But the nose is nothing. So dead. But the mouth is super sour, with horse blanket and hay. Well balanced but lacking in the nose. Good stuff

Clear with no head. Fresh pale malt nose. Clean. Very sour acid palate. Tight and quenching. Lots of citrus flavor. Well made beer. Refreshing not challenging.

varanid99 (1140) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2016
Pale yellow pour, fizzy, big white head. Aroma is citrus, sour milk. Taste is wheaty, slightly tart, but overwhelmingly a fairly neutral mineral water taste. Not a style I love, Im trying but they just keep disappointing me, so Im not a great judge

joeneugs (6287) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 30, 2016
Bottle from the brewery. It pours a clear pale yellow color with a fizzy white head that disappears. The aroma has wheat and very lightly toasted grains. Hints of lemon and herbs. The flavor has some lightly herbal hops, strong wheat and very light tartness. The body is a bit dull for the style, but still somewhat refreshing. A bit more lemony tartness and a lower gravity would probably help this one.

drjoeng (1057) - SINGAPORE - APR 18, 2016
4.8%ABV. Berliner Weisse. Tapped out gold. 4SRM. Nose is strongly acrid with a very strong phenolic character. I still call this the aroma of crushed ants with the acrid tang of formic acid hitting you high in the nose. There may be some wheaty, floury aromas in the tail end as well. Mouthfeel is watery. Palate is pale malt with wheaty flavors of water biscuit, raw peanuts, raw wheat flour, raw dough. No hops. Overall this drinks like it looks, light and airy.

willisread (3097) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Tap at DC Hama. Very light wheat nose with some light lemon and crackery malts. Body is very light with slightly watery mouthfeel. Very refreshing and easily drinkable by the gallon. Nice light tartness on the palate that keeps you coming back for more. Very simple beer, but solid for the style. Very enjoyable.
