Description 

Brewed in the traditional, German fashion by naturally introducing lactobacillus via adding raw grain to the mash (comprised of 2-row, white wheat and carapils). This Florida Weisse snaps at your taste buds with a crisp, tart, citrusy lemon bite and tropical kumquat kick.

Bizarre Gardening Accident Kumquat by Motorworks Brewing was reviewed per 2015 style guidelines of the Beer Judge Certification Program under category 29A Fruit Beer.

A distinct lemon aroma was immediately evident and melded with a citric tartness and other fruity esters to create a light and refreshing bouquet.
