Description 

Incorrigible celebrates the beauty of mischief. Wild yeasts and bacteria run free in our sour-aging cellar, the House of Funk, creating vibrant sour and acidic character in this delicate, yet complex wheat beer. The refreshingly tart session beer will tease your palate with a subtle, layered nuance.

The beer poured a beautifully clear straw color that featured very good carbonation and a hint of citrus in the aroma. There was no noticeable malt nor hop aromas, which is to be expected for the style. The flavor itself wasn't much like a beer, but rather more cider-like. It was very fruity, as if made with Granny Smith apples instead of malt and hops. Flavors of apple and a slight hint of citrus featured prominently with a nice subtle oak flavor. The beer had a nice sharp, clean tart/sour flavor due to the lactobacillus (yeast strain). The subtle hints of oak from the fermentation and barrel-aging enhance and complement the spritzy fruitiness of this beer. This Berliner Weisse was well-carbonated, reminiscent of a sparkling fruit juice cocktail rather than a wheat beer. The beer finished a little dry and puckering in the mouth due to the very sharp tartness associated with the style, but nevertheless, this was an expertly made Berliner Weisse.
