Hoppy No Boil Berliner Weisse Data and Results

 Notes:

Descriptors: grapefruit pulp, sour

Cleared up nicely after about 2 months in the keezer. Smells a lot like grapefruit both the juice and the skin. I’m happy with the sourness this beer achieved in a about a month! Very little head to no head retention after a few minutes in the glass. I really like this beer, low ABV, good sourness with an enticing aroma. Body is fairly thin, but not too bad for such a small beer. Official fan WLP672 Lactobacillus Brevis after seeing no souring in this Gose with a different White Labs Lacto strain.
