Botany Weisse - Mixed Fermentation Sour Ale
This is our version of a Berliner Weisse, at one time the most popular alcoholic drink in Berlin. Staying true to traditional brewing methods, it is a mixed fermentation beer that contains live Lactobacillus souring bacteria and underwent a secondary fermentation with Brettanomyces for over three months. It was also not boiled during the brewing process to emphasise the raw, bready flavour of the German pilsner and wheat malts. It is very pale, refreshingly acidic, highly effervescent and has subtle Brett derived fruity esters.
Malt: Pilsner, Wheat
Yeast: Voss Kveik, Brettanomyces
