Description 

Mischief Managed is the first in our series of Berliner Weisses. This version is aged in Sauvignon blanc barrels on raspberries. Tart, crisp and clean, this ruby-hued Berliner Weisse is refreshingly dry. Berliner Weisse yeasts are notorious for causing mischief in the beer if not managed correctly, so we kept this beer in the Room of Requirement at the Garage for months. A light, easy sipper at 4.5% ABV, pair it with pomme frites, an arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette, or a white pizza.

Mischief Managed by Monday Night Brewing was judged as a fruit beer, BJCP style 29A.

Overall, the beer is extremely tart from beginning to finish. The barrel component, when fused with the (as-expected) lactic dryness of the beer, significantly impacts the Berliner Weisse experience, creating a bracing (almost biting) impression. It featured a lemon zest aroma, with a beautiful appearance of medium-strawberry highlights and a head that quickly collapsed upon itself.

These factors also make it difficult to discern any contributing fruit aspects of the sample, making it seem one-dimensional. While very light in mouthfeel and very clear in color, the beer just seems like the pieces don’t fit together all that well.
