Samuel Adams Berliner Weisse
Samuel Adams now brews a Berliner Weisse! Yeah, I know, wow! It's a new seasonal for them. The label depicts a Wright Brothers type plane and sets you up for a "Refreshing & Effervescent" beer. 4.8% alcohol. 15 IBU.
Lemony, salty aroma, pretty nice. Super tame flavors, barely tart at all. There is a whisper of lemon that fades before you can even taste it. Lightly salty, very bland. Not really refreshing of effervescent. Seriously just blah, tastes like nothing. But of course my wife liked that blandness (and she HATES tart beers with a passion, so you know where we stand here.) Ask me for other recommendations on this style. Don't waste your time or stomach capacity.
