Wild Rose Brewery Peach-Apricot Berliner Weisse – Berliner Weisse at 3.8% ABV

Wild Rose Brewery Peach-Apricot Berliner Weisse Berliner Weisse at 3.8% ABV (C$7.29 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 650 ml, bottle date 23-Jun-2016, acquired 26-Jun-2016, reviewed 27-Jun-2016)

Appearance: opaque straw with one fat finger of rocky off-white head, excellent retention and no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: lactic sour, pale malt, peach and stone fruit, earthy. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, mild bitter. (7/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, drying and tart finish. (3/5)

Wow, look at you Wild Rose, rolling out two sours in quick succession! Now, I’d be a bit more impressed if they didn’t taste so much alike… I’m not saying you stuck the same thing in bottles with two different labels, but I am reminded of that “Duff – Duff Dry – Duff Light” Simpsons episode. OK, OK, to be fair, this is a fairly true-to-form Berliner Weisse, despite the added fruit character (which I guess ends up being somewhat like a true Berliner with a shot of syrup, albeit peach instead of raspberry or woodruff). Decent enough, and quite refreshing. (14/20)
