This 2.08% ABV brew was a batch of Hottenroth that took an unexpected turn and did not sour. Fortunately the result was a delicious low-ABV wheat beer brewed with kumquats.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2012 Draft at the bruery tasting room with Linh. Pours a clear electric yellow body with thine white lacing. Aroma is lemon, straight lemon. Mouthfeel is light but carbonated with notes of lemon, dry wheat, and some subtle other fruits. Nice low alcohol.

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a cloudy yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, kumquats, yeast and straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, yeat and citrus with a crisp dry lingering citrus finish.

Draft. Hazy golden-orange color with a large foamy white head. Nice fruity aroma, big, wheaty, and tart with kumquats at the forefront. The flavor is nice and tart with a prominent kumquat note, lemon, and wheat. Great crisp and light palate with lively carbonation. Even better than the regular Berliner weisse.

egajdzis (6764) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 Hazy pale golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of kumquats, light toast, bit of toffee,and faint bacterias. Taste of sweeter kumquats, toast, lightly tart, and a dry finish. A killer session.

On tap at Mohawk Bend in Echo Park. Super strong kumquat aroma, the best part of this beer. Taste is super fruity but way too grassy on the backend--same problem I have with hottenroth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is light and fruity. Pours a light hazy yellow. Pleasing fruit aroma. Would like to try this on a snow cone. Another person drinking it thought it was like an Italian soda and I agree.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 On tap at Provisions (full pint finally). Pours with a hazed yellow body with a medium sized white head. Aromas are fruity, floral, grainy, mild acidity, zesty, wheat and kumquats. Seems like their is still some lactic acid in the nose in addition to the citric kumquats. Medium esters. Flavors are medium tart, floral, zesty and fruit. Tartness lingers a bit on the palate and makes this beer very thirst quenching. Lively bubbles with a dry, not too thin finish. Very drinkable, insanely characterful for a 2% beer, and very enjoyable.

I’ve had this many times since and felt I should bump up the score. Killer session beer, insanely drinkable and characterful!

Tap at The Bruery. A light bodied wheat beer with distinct kumquat flavor. Tastes of bread, yeast, orange zest. Very refreshing.
