14. Central State - Halsdurchschlag

“When we first met Chef Seth Elgar it was over a plate of fresh oysters, so it seemed fitting that the beer we brewed with him be made to pair with fresh seafood. Tart and refreshing, this Berliner Weiss is complimented perfectly by the addition of fresh Meyer Lemons for a clean and piney finish.”

More funky Brettanomyces action from Central State, though this one is just a tad too tart to be refreshing. The flavor is lovely, and the funky yeast once again pairs well; but it’s not quite the transporting experience of a Black Acre Cherry Ol’ Fritz or an Urban Artifact Finn.
