Drank: Lemon Diesel (Flat Tail Brewing)


Just as Burgundy comes from Burgundy and Champagne comes from Champagne, beer has appellations, too. Leipziger Gose hails from Leipzig, Germany, and Berliner Weisse comes from Berlin. Thus, Flat Tail Brewing in Corvallis calls Lemon Diesel a Corvaller Weisse. Named for a strain of marijuana, this light, tart wheat ale was aged for two years, picking up overt citrus notes and acidity thanks to funky yeasts. This blend also benefits from a small portion of Little Green Session Dry-hopped Saison, which bursts with Mosaic hops and lends distinct guava flavor to a beer with a very floral aroma. In the end, it’s intensely sour yet hoppy and tropical. For the folks who remember Saxer Lemon Lager: This is the beer you actually wanted. It smells like Lemon Pledge but doesn’t taste like it. Recommended.
