Berliner Weisse
Fermented with a blend of Hefeweizen yeast and Lactobacillus, this German Wheat beer is refreshingly clean and tart. Its acidity will properly develop in the bottle or keg for 4 to 6 months, at which time your patience will be rewarded with a delightful mouth puckering crispness that compliments the soft maltiness of this brew.
