Brodies Brewery London Weisse (3.6%)

Londoner WeisseThis really took me by surprise as it’s rather sour and I simply wasn’t expecting it.
Though somehow perhaps subconsciously I knew as I’d paired it with a Gueuze for my lunch time tipple.
The smell is apples and bananas, yeast and straw and sadly this one sits just a little flat in my glass.
You get a nice big cider apple kick in the first mouthful that gives way to a gentle caramel malt and just a hint of spice.
The hops are citrus tinged and good and dry with a little fried banana that jumps out and shouts boo right at the end, leaving you with a finish that’s verging on sour but without the ferocity of a true Lambic.
I’d just like it a little more bubbly.
