Brouwerij de Molen Morellen – Berliner Weisse at 6% ABV | 15 IBU

Brouwerij de Molen Morellen Berliner Weisse at 6% ABV | 15 IBU (C$3.15 at The Brewer’s Apprentice, 330 ml, packaged on 22-Sep-2015, best before 22-Sep-2017, acquired 14-Mar-2018, reviewed 23-Apr-2018)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale amber with some brown particulate, two fat fingers of loose slightly pinkish head, good retention and spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: red berries, brown apple, prunes, moderate funk. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, minimal bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-high carbonation, medium duration tart and funky finish. (3/5)

Yeah… this might’ve been a bit of an error on my part. I figured, if it’s good for 24 months, it’s probably fine for 30 – but might’ve oxidized. That, or it’s just straight-up the worst De Molen beer I’ve ever had. Slightly spoiled fruit and slightly cheesy funk make this less than entirely pleasant. Not a particularly good Berliner Weisse. (11/20)
