I 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.
Pros: Flavorful, low ABV
Alcohol Content: 3.1% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): 8
Brewers Website: Gneiss Brewing
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.
