Aslan Brewing

Disco Lemonade (Berliner Weisse)

4.5% ABV // 4 IBU // 1.042 OG
light body + effervescent + tart
This refreshingly sour wheat beer is brewed to style, which dates back to the Middle Ages and is often referred to as “The People’s Champagne.” The tartness of this beer will bring out hints of lemon, while the generous amount of wheat will round out the body lending a remarkable similarity to lemonade. Enjoy as is or add a shot of raspberry syrup for a twist!
Hops: Hallertau
Malt: Pilsner, Wheat
