Picking up on my beer and ale reviews again. I love craft beers and always pick up something different when I go to the liquor store. This week I got a bottle of Berliner Weiss from Full Sail Brewery.
This wasn’t my first beer from Full Sail. They also brew the line of Session premium lagers which are some of my favorites.
This beer is really good and tart. In fact the tartness almost has a sour taste but in a good way. The taste is dry and crisp and perfect for a summer brew. It is an “unfiltered beer made with 50% wheat malt, a tiny amount of hersbruker hops and a touch of lactic acid to give it a refreshing tartness” according to the brewer Chris Haveman who created this.
It has medium carbonation and a golden pour. The label design is a good piece of artwork reminiscent of a piece of American paper currency.
It is a small batch brew so once it is gone from store shelves, that’s it. The Full Sail Brewing Company is located in Hood River, Oregon and you can bet that the next time I am up that way (hopefully next summer) I will dropping by their brewery for a tour and sampling.
