Description 

Our Berliner Weisse has a little more alcohol than a traditional Berliner. However, we thought you'd like it better that way. The tartness of this kettle soured Berliner comes through and is complimented by its effervescence. In the tap room you can have it in its original, unadulterated greatness or feel free to add one of the many fruit syrups available as is traditionally done

The aroma of this Berliner weisse presents moderate wheaty and grainy malt with a light citrusy fruit and a hint of sweet fruit reminiscent of prickly pear fruit.  Upon the first sip, the prominent sourness is readily evident!  Moderately puckering, the flavors of wheat and a lime citrus compliment the clean lactic sourness.  The finish is lightly bitter allowing the clean sourness to cleanse the palate to a refreshing, crisp, sour finish.  The delicate esters and the clean lactic sourness provide for a wonderful, refreshing sour beverage.  No woodruff or raspberry syrup required!
