Engel Weisse Beer Review


Engel Weisse is a Berliner Weiss beer, which means that Elevation has crafted an effort that has a considerable fruit side. An initial pour has a considerable white head and a grape meets citrus head, while an initial sip yields hints of apples, grapes, lemons, and hints of tannins. With each subsequent drink, imbibers will be impressed with the effervescence of the beer – the effort is quaffed easily, granting drinkers a fleeting beer taste amongst the considerable fruit notes. The 4.0% ABV of the Engel Weisse ensures that one bottle will be sufficient to create an utterly unforgettable night. Engel Weisse is a beer that would be a perfect introduction for those that have not found the proper introduction to beer. The effervescence of the Engel Weisse invites comparisons to crisp, dry, white wines.

Visit the Elevation Beer website for more information about the brewery’s efforts, the hours that they maintain, and the ability to sign up for Elevation’s newsletter. As an introduction to the Berliner weisse style, Elevation’s Engel Weisse is eminently drinkable and continually offers up a wide array of twists and turns before the beer is completed.

Rating: 8.3/10
