Well heres the first try people. Still a bit hazy in the bottle, lots of carbonation, white head, poured it on some muddled sweet cherries. It tastes good besides the short conditioning time. Less citrusy, still tart, minor aftertaste, its seems warming to me, odd. I'll try another in a couple weeks without any fruit in it.

So much for "a long time to condition." it looks awesome. I'd try it.

Yea I expected it to taste like absolute crap, the cherries may have helped, regardless it carbonated quick and tastes pretty good to me. I'm going to wait another 3 Weeks then let friends and my local supplier give it a try. If they agree I may persuaded to release a few to willing samplers.

So what's the verdict? Willing to let a few of those boys go?

Good question actually, havent tried one in months to see how its coming. Last time i let friends try (3 months or so ago) they weren't quite sure how to take it, i think their words were "not my cup of tea". I'll chill some up and i think i got some rasberry syrup in the fridge. I'll try it this weekend and let you know. As for letting some go, no problem, would be nice to have a professional let me know how bad they really are!?

I would love to try this out- let us know if you decide to release any. Totally awesome. I'd like to try it without any fruit/sweetener first just to see what the yeast character is like. Berliner weisse is my favorite. A wild Berliner could be some next-level stuff.

Not sure if i ever posted this, it was one of my first BIAB and was supposed to be a HEFE:

2.5kg German Wheat
1.25kg 2 Row
0.2kg CaraPils
12g Hallertau 60min
12g Saaz 20min
12g Hallertau 10min
Irish Moss 10min

OG Was 1.044
FG was 1.010

Poured nice, smell is far less sour and the taste is mellowed. I would think my friends would still say "not my pint of ale" but i find it enjoyable with the raspberry syrup. This may only be because "its my baby" type of thing. I still get this warming sensation on the first few sips like as if the alcohol was really high??? I have absolutely no way to determine if this anything like a Berliner Weisse since i have never found one to compare to. I did harvest the yeast but its quite old now and it would take a bit to get it going, i would think, to try some in another batch. Anyone willing to give this a shot and tell me i'm nuckin futs and its just a pile of s$%t just say the word and i will ship you some.

If no one else jumps on it, I live in close by in Calgary and would love to try one. I think people living closer, are experienced sour beer brewers or beer judges should get priority over me though.

But I am not a beer neophyte either. As of today I have sampled and recorded over 730 commercial beers, though only one has been a sour so I do not have much experience with them. Still I am pretty open minded when it comes to beer in all its forms.

I guess another caveat is I am actually overseas right now visiting family and won't be back until mid-November.

So if you send it to another HBT member I won't feel slighted. I am just some random guy on HBT.

I'm sure it's not much like a berliner weisse, they're quite sour and tart, but I think the comparison was drawn because it was a potentially soured wheat beer. I'd love to try a bottle or two. PM for my address and let me know what shipping will be.

Cheers!
