COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OIBF Collaboration Brew: Collab with The Commons Brewery from Portland, Oregon. What we knew about Broyhans wasnít a lot apart from being a pale, sour beer with little hops, some spices instead and that it had wine like qualities. We started with the base of a kettle soured pale beer with wheat and oats. We added some Hallertau Blanc at flame-out and filled the hop back with Sorachi Ace and white pepper, then we fermented with a Belgian yeast strain that would add some spicy flavors.

Gangstergafje (1105) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2017
30-05-2017; bottle; at home (bought at Bier&zO in Rotterdam, The Netherlands). The looks of the beer are quite nice. The beer has a lovely pale yellow colour, quite light, with a greenish yellow glow. The beer has a lovely satin look, because of the cloudiness. Lovey. On top of the beer there is some rough white foam. The foam retention isnít that great. After a while hardly anything is left. The smell of the beer is nice. I immediately smell the distinct fresh sour aromaís of a Berliner Weisse. The only sour beer that I really like. The aroma comes with lovely fresh fruit aromas. I smell very clear and refreshing fresh apples and a touch of pear. There are some grapes to. I also smell some delicate sour oaky touches, reminding me of dry white wine. I canít believe the level of fruitiness that the smell has. There is a tiny maltiness, accompanying the sweets that the fruit aromaís have (it ainít all about sourness). I donít smell any hops. The taste of the beer is also lovely. It is tongue twisting sour, with a lot of sour fresh fruits, some lemon and a minimal of wild yeast sourness. I love it, but Iím a guy that eats lemon like itís ordinary fruit. There is also that nice white wine like touch and some sweet malts. The beer is extremely fresh. Even though the beer is very, very sour, it is still quite balanced. The sweetness is just strong enough to bring harmony to the beer. Very fresh. The palate of the beer is nice. Rather light body, sticky texture (not that sticky though) and medium low carbonation. The finish isnít very long, but contains some lovely fresh sour and a bit sweet fruits like apple and some pear. I like it a lot.

Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2017
Bottle: Served in a shaker: White head. Hazy yellow body. Nose is a mix of light sour tints with mainly rhuharb and some hints of (apple) pie, apricot and pine apple. Flavour is refreshing tart with grapes and rhuharb, hint of somethibg grainy (balanced) and light citric... Aftertaste is tart, grapes and rhuharb with a light citric flow away... Low carbo, light watery light tart mouthfeel, close to medium bodied. Maybe not a deep or roubd beer, no layers or no real dimensions, but itís tasty and crispy as it is, I like it!

uckelman (790) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Pours opaque, color of grapefruit juice. Ring of white head. Aroma is also a buit grapefruity, a bit champagne-y. Rather sour. I donít really taste or smell the white pepper.

3.5
sarauckelman (532) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Cloudy lemon yellow with no head. Strong lemon pith smell, with a hint of something else (the pepper?). Extremely sour lemon flavor, does not taste like a Berliner weisse at all (though itís a good sour beer). Itís sort of like alchoholic lemonade. Light bodied.

culchiem (3929) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle from Bierkonig. Light gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is acidic fruit. Flavour is tart, yeast and hop, spice with a bit of salt on the finish.

PotjeBier (3218) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2017
33 cl bottle @ home. Pale yellow color, slightly hazy. White head with short retention. Aromaís: lactic sourish, salty, fruity. Retronasal itís quite sour, lactic, salty, wheaty. Flavor is moderate to full sour, wheaty, fruity. Light bodied. Short finish. I really had the impression that there was actual fruit in this (but no) and I didnít get any of the pepper. Nice enough.
