Victory Frische Weisse

Posted: December 31, 2016 in Berliner Weissbier, Reviews, Victory Brewing Company

Happy New Year’s Eve! Val and I aren’t big fans of the holiday and usually just do something quiet at home. If you’re going out, make sure you have a designated driver or aren’t driving at all. Now, let’s crack open this beer.

ABV: 5.2%

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This refreshing beer features a grainy aroma, slightly hazy straw yellow body. Aroma is grainy, touch of lactic acidity. Slightly tannic, acidity is very refreshing but not bitingly sharp. Very refreshing and easily drinkable.”

Random: One of the beer podcasts I listen to discusses physics on their preshow. It’s quite fascinating.

This beer poured with a finger of pure white head. It took awhile to go away and left no lacing on the glass. The body was slightly cloudy and bright yellow. It had slightly less carbonation than I expected to see. On the nose, the dominant scent was tart cherries along with the expected wheat note. After a few sniffs, I lost the wheat and only smelled the cherries. The taste started with a white vinegar tartness. I also got apple with apple skins, but not the same as the off-flavor apple note. It had a lot of cherry notes with cherry pits as well. The body was thin with the same moderate carbonation that could have been dialed up a bit to make it go down easier. It had a lengthy finish with wheat and white vinegar. A bottle of this was $1.67 ($.14 per ounce). I enjoyed drinking this beer, I just wish it had more bubbles.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
