Runnin’ For Mayor—tasting notes
Runnin' for Mayor by Garage Beer is a Berlinner Weisse with raspberries, defined by its creators as a Barcelona Weisse. Raspberry red in colour, the fruit is the protagonist both in flavour and aroma, its sweetness being balanced by the typical bitterness of a Berliner. Very drinkable and refreshing!
Berliner Weisse is a low alcohol German wheat beer. Very pale in color, with a clean sourness—produced by the fermentation with lactobacillus—and a very high carbonation level, aromas are very sour and sometimes fruity. Flavour is sour, funk and quite strong sometimes, with a dry finish and no hop flavours at all. It is generally not as acidic and has a lower ABV than a Lambic.
