The inaugural beer from our new Starkeller facility, Galactic Collision was brewed in the traditional Berliner Weisse fashion with a mixed-culture fermentation and without boiling. It was then aged for a full year with an authentic Berliner Weisse strain of Brettanomyces in our original, 1936 cypress wood lagering tanks. Golden in color with a bright white head and slight haze, the beer has a fruity, cider-like aroma and lemon-tart acidic character. Notes of fresh pear and citrus compliment its sparkeling carbonation and dry oak-like finish. Unfiltered, Galactic Collision has been hand-filled and bottle-conditioned to allow the flavors to continue to evolve in the bottle.
