Leinenkugel's BeerGarten Tart

Leinenkugel's Brewing Company is from  Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.  They began brewing in 1867. Leinenkugel's has been owned by Miller for some time now. This 4.8% ABV Berliner Weisse inspired beer is their latest release.

The beer pours a clear and very pale yellow golden, like champagne. There is a short lived head of white foam. The aroma is like a grainy adjunct lager, in this case regular Leinie's, with a bit of tart on the end. The taste follows the aromas, but ups the tartness to high levels. This is quite, quite tart. The beer drinks easy, carbonated, and crisp, like an adjunct lager, with a dry and tart finish. The tartness fades quickly off the palate. This is a mixed bag.
