Off Color Brewing Troublesome

What the brewers say

“We blend together two different beers to make Troublesome. The first is a somewhat uninteresting wheat beer, and the second is an overly acidic and funky beer fermented solely with_ Lactobacillus._ We blend the two beers together with coriander and salt at the tail end of fermentation to create a mild, lemony tartness and a fuller sensation of mouthfeel. And yes, it’s hard to make.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Sweet malt, lemon tartness, and warm dirt. Fresh-cut grass and floral, herbal character in the nose. Slight lemon and earthiness, with Belgian yeast spice.”

Flavor: “Lemon tartness with slight malt wheat sweetness. Some lactic acidity and lemon zest. Round, full body with some background bitterness and slight mineral character. Very creamy. Pleasant graininess in the finish.”

Overall: “Enjoyable and refreshing, but a little one-dimensional. Sour character is extremely subtle, and flavors taste a little mismatched. Great raw wheat character.”
