Evil Twin Brewing Nomader Weisse (Batch #001) – Berliner Weisse at 4% ABV

Evil Twin Brewing Nomader Weisse (Batch #001) Berliner Weisse at 4% ABV (C$5.49 at Oak & Vine, 355 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 31-Jul-2017, reviewed 1-Aug-2017)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with one finger of fine white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, no lacing. (4/5) Aroma: lemon zest, lacto sour, doughy wheat, green apple. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, low bitter. (7/10) Palate: light body, moderate-high carbonation, dry crisp tart finish. (4/5)

Decent example of the style. A bit more flavourful and tart than the more traditional examples, perhaps, but arguably less in need of a syrup shot as a result. Green apple eventually dominated the nose and palate, but not to the point where this seemed like a cider. Lively carbonation contributes to a dryly crisp and clean finish. And yes, “Nomad” is of course an appropriate term for any beer brewed by Jeppe… (15/20)
