COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boiler Room is a light bodied but surprisingly flavorful sour wheat beer. The sourness is created by souring the wort prior to boiling and fermentation (unlike Belgian-style sours which sour during fermentation and have active bacteria in them when packaged). The nose of the beer has a light Hersbrucker hop note and a distinct funkiness. The taste is sweet malt quickly going into a tart body and finish. The sour and malt flavors balance well all the way through creating a very refreshing beverage, akin to drinking a tart lemonade or limeade. For a beer with just over 3.5%, it creates a big experience for the palate. Traditionally this beer is enjoyed either straight or with raspberry or woodruff syrup to sweeten it (and turn it red or green, respectively).

Draft at Big Hops Huebner. Wow, never though Id see a Texas weisse. This is sort of a transition version, intended, I would think, to introduce people to the sour. With that in mind, its very mildly sour, not really tart, with a nice lemon aroma and taste. Very easy to drink. Meets its goal.

Oakes (16469) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2016
Hazy and quite pale, but dull. No head. Kettle sour and yeasty character. So its a decent kettle sour, nor a berliner, and just ok.
