New Beer Friday 7/13/12

Yeah, I'm still here, it's just been a brutally slow July in the Utah Beer universe. Today for New Beer Friday we have Full Sail's Berliner Weisse.

If your not familiar with the style, Berliner Weisse's are one of rare sour or "tart" ales made in Germany. It's a wheat beer made with both traditional warm-fermenting yeasts and lactobacillus cultures. They have a rapidly vanishing head and a clear, pale golden straw-colored appearance. The taste is refreshing, tart, sour and acidic, with a lemony-citric fruit sharpness and almost no hop bitterness.

This beer pours a light yellow with very little foam. The nose is of wheat, lemon, hay and some hints of lactic acid. The taste starts Lightly tart with a bready sweetness and hints of corn flavors. The finish is grainy and grassy  with a yogurt tartness.  Even though this beer is 4.0% ABV it is only available at liquor stores. Go figure.

Prost!

Hi Kent and all,

90th South DID have it on Saturday. Just over 5 dollars for a bottle. I can understand why it would not sell at a grocery store. I likely will drink it sometime this week and chime in with a mini review.

Prost,
Scott
