Red IPA review - says it's just ok. I'm going to do a mini mash and possibly add more hops to hopefully improve it. I like the Pouch to Couch tagline!

Another good review for the Berliner Weisse:

http://www.fairwater-brewery.co.uk/2018/04/berliner-style-sour-ale-kt10-kt11/

"I was really impressed with this kit.  The beer is a perfectly clear, pale, gold. Typical wheat beer aromas, bananas and the like, which are also present when tasted.  The sourness isn’t mouth-puckering, but it’s more than enough to let you know you’re drinking a sour beer.  It’s a really refreshing and tasty beer. 

"I was kind of surprised by the overtly wheat beer flavours of this kit, I guess I was expecting something more like the Berliner-Weisse-styled beers I’ve had from the likes of Siren’s Calypso, where I don’t remember any bananas at all!  The ones I made myself I also used a neutral yeast (as I was planning to dry-hop and wanted those flavours to come through). So, for my second time around I’m not using the kit yeast." (M20 Bavarian Wheat)

I'm going to do this kit myself at some point and I'll use a neutral yeast (like 05 or Kolsch), which I understand is much more typical in a BW. The Weiss bier yeast seems like a mistake to me, confusing Weiss Bier with Berliner Weisse. Banana and clove are not normally features of BWs. I'll save the M20 for a wheat beer, its a nice yeast, I did a brew with Paul a couple of months ago with it, 35% wheat, American hops, and we added coriander and bitter orange peel. Lovely beer.

The BW kit is one of the 'limited release' kits, so it may be a good idea to grab one soon. Although I suspect they will make this one a part of their range.

 Ive been drinking a few BW's the last few weeks, I bought a pack of sours from Beer with some extras added in, ive found the BW's to be very bland, they really need dry hopping or a syrup added just to give some flavour.

BWs are not all equal. I have found bottled BWs to be bland. Had some good draft versions. Fruit works well in them for sure.
