Brilliant old gold color. Yeasty, fruity aromas of hibiscus, sourdough, cherry pie, and lemon zest with a soft, lively, spritzy, fruity sweet light body and a smooth, short raspberry jam, toasted wheat cracker, lemon juice, and fresh cut flowers finish. A rose-colored beer with refreshing acidity and balanced berry notes.

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.
