Berliner Geist (Fellowship 2017) – Strange Fellows Brewing

From Strange Fellows Brewing in Vancouver comes their first of four beer of 2017 in their fellowship club the “Berliner Geist Barrel-Aged Berliner Weisse”.  The beer pours an orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of tartness, sweetness, citrus, orange, vanilla and oak.  The flavour is of tartness, lemon, vanilla, oak, sweetness, citrus rind with a good acidic finish.   Especially for a 4.5% alcohol this one is huge on flavour while not packing a huge punch on the alcohol side.  I am really happy to be part of the Fellowship again this year.

Commercial Description:  BERLINER GEIST: This barrel-aged and bottle conditioned Berliner Weisse is distinctly sour and complex (refreshing), with a delicate woody vanilla character and an oaky aroma.  At 5% ABV this is a slightly lighter but deeply flavourful release perfect for laying down or enjoying on a summer evening.
