Tatamagouche Brewing _Philaroma_ Berliner Weisse at 3.8% ABV | 5 IBU _(C$4.13 at Liquid Assets YHZ, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 12-Nov-2017, reviewed 30-Nov-2017)_

Appearance: clear red-tinged pale amber with a fizzy off-white head diminishing rapidly to a thin persistent cap, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: bready yeast, lactic sour, cherries, hint of sulphur. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high tart, moderate sweet, low bitter. (7/10) Palate: light body, effervescent carbonation, dry crisp tart finish. (4/5)

Definitely a kettle soured Berliner Weisse, with all that implies. Not unpleasant, though the yeast smells distinctly bready, and there’s just a hint of stylistically inappropriate sulphur (DMS). A solid enough brew despite that, with a clean refreshing tart finish. (14/20)
