Beer Brief #48 – Star of the North

Brewery – August Schell Brewing Company, New Ulm, Minnesota

Beer – Star of the North

Style – Berliner Weisse

ABV – 3.5%

Color – Cloudy pale yellow with a white head

Aroma – Graham crackers, lemony citrus, earthy, sweet spice

Flavor – Brief yeasty dough, big bright tartness that’s a cross of lemon and cranberry takes over, a bit of sourdough bread and minimal bitterness in the finish

Verdict – This is a wonderful, light, refreshing Berliner Weisse that is everything I expect from this type of brew. The low (and true to style) ABV allows you to enjoy the whole bottle of this sessionable beer by yourself if you want, but it might be nice to share this experience with somebody else…
