Posted: January 6, 2016 in Berliner Weissbier, Evil Twin Brewing, Reviews

Tonight’s selection comes from Evil Twin. This beer was probably much more suited to Summer drinking, but for “research” purposes, I cracked it open to review.


ABV: 4%

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Nomads; constantly moving, ’round and ’round; sometimes settle, if just for a bit. Perhaps the muse moves one to brew a sharp and clean session beer, one inspired by the Berliner-weisse of old, and the nomad rests. Enjoy this beer, here, there, perhaps north of Madison Square Park, in lovely New York City. Wherever you are, this beer was made nice, simply for you.”

Random: I love Evil Twin’s can art. This one jumped off the shelf at me.

This brew poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated instantly. It left no lacing on the glass. The body was slightly cloudy with visible floaties. It was a dark yellow color with almost no carbonation visible. The nose had tartness and white vinegar. Light lemon notes came through as well. The taste was intensely tart with lemon juice. It reminded me of Sour Patch Kids. Some wheat came through as well. After a few sips, there was a touch of white grapes too. Despite this, the flavors were a bit one note for me. The body was light and under carbonated. It had a very quick finish with tart lemon. A can of this beer was $2.38 ($.20 per ounce), which isn’t all that expensive for an Evil Twin beer. Despite the affordability, I found the beer to just be alright, but not a chore to drink. With that being said, there are better options out there.
