Murky deep amber color. Curious aromas and flavors of paper mache, rubber band, waxy honeycomb, and ham and pickle sandwich in a ziploc with a supple, vibrant, spritzy, sweet-and-sour light-to-medium body and an effortless, medium-long finish manifesting nuances of pickled plum and mushrooms, candle wax, grass, and berry granita finish. A tart, earthy fruit sour.

Flavored Berliner Weisse

A relatively new take on the relatively newly resurrected Berliner Weisse style of sour wheat beer, these beers are typically flavored with fruit juices, sometimes to offset the tartness of the base beer with fruity sweetness, sometimes to amplify that tartness with citrus juices. As sour beers continue to grow in popularity and diversity, the lightness, balance, and refreshing appeal of flavored Berliner Weisses makes a great introduction to sour beers.
