681. Gneiss Brewing Limericker Weisse

Gneiss Brewing LimerickerI am becoming a big fan of low ABV beers and this one certainly qualifies at a very low 3.1%. Also really enjoying the resurgence of the Berliner weisse style with loads of flavor and a bit of tart to keep your taste buds wanting more.

Dustin does a great job with Limericker Weisse as it pours a light yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is mild but you get a little lemon sour as a hint of what’s to come. Taste is really where this one excels with that sour lemon and very clean dry finish.

Limericker is a great summertime beer from a great new brewery in Southern Maine. A visit to Limerick should be on everyone’s list of things to do this fall.

Brewers Description: Limericker Weisse is our first sour beer. Our take on the classic Berliner weisse style, Limericker is tart and refreshing, perfect for a hot summer day. The unique flavor is achieved by utilizing a sour mash and fermenting with a mixed culture of our house yeast and lactobacillus. The sour mash imparts a citrus like acidity and the mixed culture leaves the beer dry with just a hint of the banana notes found in our flagship Gneiss Weiss.

  1. What food goes well with, say the Gneiss Weiss flagship beer? “Anything German, but seafood goes well, too. The flavors don’t compete with the food, like a highly hopped beer would. It’s crisp and refreshing.”
