Name – Hottenroth
Country – United States
Type – Berliner Weisse
Appearance – Pours a very hazy pale yellow color. It good sized bubbly white head disappears rather quickly into the brew.
Smell – The scents were not strong but you could pick up the wheat smell, lemon and some spices.
Taste – The label says it’s tart and it sure is. It reminded me of eating lemon and sour apple Warheads as a kid. Of course it was not nearly as tart as the candy but you get the point. But yeah lemon and sour apples are definitely picked up and a little bit of wheat in there.
I’ve never had a Berliner Weisse before. I passed on the opportunity to have some at Redlight Redlight in November in favor of a few other things. I was pleasantly surprised on this. I am really starting to enjoy the sour ales I have been having and this is right up that alley for me.
Overall Grade – A-
