Another Berliner Weisse that is just perfect for summer afternoons, so no surprise at the name.
You may well have many Berliners over this summer, but this is likely the only one that features Minneola, which is an orange citrus fruit that is something like a cross between a grapefruit and a mandarin.
The beer is dry hopped with Simcoe, Mosaic and Citra hops (and Citra is even used as the bittering hop) so there is a real tropical fruitiness to this beer. Aromas of orange, mandarin, tangerine and passionfruit follow through in the flavour.
There is a very light sourness, maybe even more of a fruit tartness than sour. Super easy drinking, this beer really doesn’t give any impression of being alcoholic.
I can really see myself having a few of these over summer. I only wish all the flavours were dialed up a notch or two. Maybe I’ll suggest an imperial version for autumn!
