COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jokingly named by Upright’s beer titler Angelo de Ieso after our pal Vasili, head brewer at Laurelwood, this brew is a one-off barrel fermented Berliner-weisse. It’s got a pleasantly funky and aromatic nose with the characteristic sharp sour flavor produced by large amounts of lactic acid bacteria. The Lactovasilios was a small batch blend that will see very limited distribution, but expect to see it at Portland’s most beer-centric spots

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Draft at Green Dragon. Pours a clear pale gold with a loose white head. Funky wet straw nose also showing some light lemon and some damp sourdough bread. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sourdough and wet straw mid palate with tiny bits of lemon. Very refreshing; tons of flavor for 3.8.

Gerbeer (3891) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2014
On tap. Pours a yellow tawny color with very little head. Aromas of sour fruit, wheat, and peach. Flavors of nectarine/apricot, mango, and citrus all with a very light malt/wheat backdrop. Tart. Nicely carbonated. Berliner-Weisse - I don’t know but very nice and refreshing. Absolutely great for the ABV.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2014 On tap at alibi. Hazy straw yellow. Aroma is brilliant sour citrus, underripe apricot. Taste is sweet and tart. Crispy, and yet leaves a good dry coating in the mouth tissues.

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Cloudy pour with white head. Aroma is tart with wheat and saw dust. Flavour is light, crisp and relatively dry with a mild tartness throughout. Really digging the Berliner Weisse.

3.6
stantheman (1098) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A pale orange clouded concoction with a skiff of pale head. Sour citrus nose. A drunken palate could easily mistake this for a citrus cooler, but the subtle sour note is the difference. A great summer beer, and perfect for a mild September eve. 3.6.

3.1
Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 8, 2014
On tap at Belmont. A: Semi-cloudy orange with a lazy white head. No lacing. N: Grain, biscuit, green apple, and butterscotch. Lemon zest and grapefruit rind. T: Lightly tart; mild sweetness. M: A touch oily. Body is closer to the medium range than light. Not really close to the style. O: This feels underdone, as if the lacto didn’t have time to fully ingest the malt and subsequently lighten this one up. Doesn’t live up to their usual standards.

pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - AUG 30, 2014
On draught at Roscoe’s for the Sour Beer Summit. Light rosé color. Aroma is light fruity yeast funk. Taste is apple, lactic sour, and funky yeast. Refreshing finish and a lot of flavor in the finish.

Cloudy tan, tart lacto character, some sweet malts, touch of tartness, not a lot of complexity , yeasty, but at least a little refreshing.

Bottle shared by me at Alan’s house. Pours cloudy yellow with white head. Nose and taste of banana, sour wheat, lemon, funk and lactose sourness. Lighter medium body.

3.7
gramity (1678) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 24, 2013
On tap at Belmont Station Puckerfest 2013! Hazy straw-colored ale with a miniscule white head that disappears in a blink. The aroma provides oak and lots of fruity, citric acidity. Light-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is citric and quite sour. Crisp, tart, clean finish. Excellent true-to-style Berliner weisse
