Westbrook Brewing 100% Brett Lichtenhainer

Brewed in the style of a Brett Barrel Fermented Lichtenheiner. Lichtenheiner is an old German Style sour beer brewed with smoked malt. Almost like a Berliner Weisse brewed with a portion of smoked malt.

Pours a pale golden color with a frothy white head. Aromas of smoke, tart fruit, and earthiness. Light-bodied with smoky and sour flavors. Tart finish with earthy notes and some lingering smoke flavor. Almost no hop bitterness.

Brewed with smoked malt.

Fermented with Brettanomyces wild yeast. Aged in wine barrels for 9 months.

Limited release in bottles.
