8 Wired says: A refreshing, light, hoppy, sour and very fruity tasting ale inspired by traditional Berliner Weisse ales. Naturally soured by live cultures and dry hopped with American and New Zealand hops. Probably the closest thing I have tasted to fruit juice, that didn't contain any fruit at all! - It's a trip! Peace out.
We say: 8 Wired is hands down one of our very favourite breweries, let alone one of our favourite New Zealand breweries. Brewer Soren Eriksson knows how to make a beer, and he's especially adept with sours. (Check out his Wild Feijoa Sour for a master class in the art.) Hippy Berliner is a supremely drinkable sour for any time of day or year. We hope you love it as much as we do. - Glenn
