In the One World Series of beers the Penticton based Bad Tattoo Brewing has entered the session and sours scenes with the No Walls Berliner Weisse. Coming in a bomber bottle this summer refresher pours as a slightly hazy, golden-straw colour topped with a finger and a half of quickly settling head. Leaving no sign of lacing behind on the glass the No Walls smells crisp and fresh in a slightly sharp sourness to it. The wheat tones blend to make a unique and soft aroma with a kick of sour to it. The body is quite light and thin and on the first sip a strong carbonation hits the palate. With the already slightly acidic carbonation comes a fresh sour-tone reminiscent of a granny smith apple that adds a refreshing and summery attribute to the beer. As the carbonation settles so does the sour making room for a wheat and malt flavour. The second half of the flavour is more like a mellow Witbier than anything else. The contrast is unique and quite nice. The No Walls is light and refreshing and will surely be a summer hit on the Bad Tattoo patio.
