Sailor's Grave Whisky Sour Berliner Weisse

Brewer's Notes: A fun and refreshing take on a Berliner Weisse that plays with the flavours of a Whisky Sour. Lemony, with a fat creamy head and subtle cherry, orange and whisky aromas, this beer finishes smooth and dry. Inspired by the classic Whisky Sour cocktail and with the help of Golden Age Bar Manager Maggie Ortega we have played with a traditional Berliner Weisse to create a beer both complex and subtle. We candied hundreds of local oranges and added them along with Maraschino cherries, Meyer lemon, orange bitters and rye-soaked oak staves. Pouring with a thick head of creamy white foam this beer has a lemony tartness instead of the usual lactic tang. All the flavours of a Whisky Sour are layered in a gentle background harmony and the beer is as thirst quenching as it is interesting. Un-malted barley adds a creamy texture and a super-dry finish does the job making this a very crushable tinnie.
