COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Collaboration with Hopleaf! We started by brewing a traditional German Berlinerweiss—which Napolean’s men called the Champagne of the North—then tweaked it with a homemade tea blend to impart a slight apricot hue and botanical aromatics.

Glass at Memphis with some brahs. Hazy orange pour with medium to large white head, with great lacing. Aromas and taste are belgian fruit, crisp yeast, lemons, light mango. Not getting much papaya. A little restrained for a berliner, wish there was more yeasty sour funk yo. Pretty solid overall. More funk came out as it warmed. Moved it up a couple notches.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Draft on tap at Hop Leaf (Chicago, IL). First time in in awhile. Saw this was on, decided a trip was in order. Pours a orange gold hue, firmly hazed and some dulled glow to it. Not dark, but hazy. A frothy small whitish head sits atop, dies to a mellow layer, loose ring lacing as we press on. Aromas are tart and woody, lemon meets gentle fruit, citrus, and lemon. Gentle lactic twang, mellow bread and straw. Some woody, earthy tea elements are plesant, unique, but kinda muddle the tart lactic edge. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a touch sweeter and tamer than anticipated. Lemony lactic edge is mellow, touches of yogurt, lemon. Touch of peach, bready malts and straw. A bit cereal, some gentle carbonation tickles and lightens the load on the palate. Middle is a bit more sour, lemons meet orange, some gentle woody spice comes into the backend. A bit more dry, lighter. Finish is crisp, dry, a bit tart with lingering fruit, peach and lemon. Solid. Firm tartness on re-evaluation over RBSG 2014 Weekend. Could drink this for a long time. Upped aroma 1, taste 1, palate 1, overall 1 for a 4 pt swing.

Sampled at Augusta Bottoms Beer Festival 2013 - I really dug this one. Pours light yellow with a hint of orange and a small white head. The aroma has light malt, a hint of tea and some mushiness. It has a light body that is fairly smooth and has moderate sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with sharp acidic tartness, spiciness and some herbal notes that are probably the tea, but it comes across very floral. The finish has some tropical fruit and tartness. This was a winner of the fest for me.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a beautiful slightly hazy light orangish pinkish peach color with a fizzy off white head. Aroma is a mild fruity blend with a touch of tartness. Flavor has an excellent berliner weisse tartness with citrus, tropical fruits, touch of tea. Overall a wonderful beer and imo underrated on this site.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Hazy light orange with medium white head. Aroma is light tart, light body, medium/well carbonated, and some lacing. Taste is nice tart and some apricot. Good Berliner.
