Southbound Transilience, now in cans

Southbound Transilience cans

Southbound Transilience has found a new home in cans this week. The brewery’s popular berliner weisse just made your pool lineup.

While the India Pale Ale is still the most brewed style across America’s breweries, the berliner weisse style is on fire. The wheat beer is kettle soured with Lactobacillus bacteria, and finishes tart and refreshing. Savannah, Georgia’s Southbound Brewing does theirs with a twist. They add fresh mango and pomegranate.

We brewed up this German-style sour wheat to help us transition in the Atlanta market. Lactobacillus and saccharomyces create this light, acidic, and tart summer heat quencher.

We’ve been fan of this beer since trying it last summer. The fruit flavors are beautiful compliment to the finish of this beer. Our criticism was the bottle size for a beer you want to chug. Well… they’ve fixed that now haven’t they? See you at the pool.

Southbound Transilience starts shipping this week in 12 ounce cans for the first time.

Style: Berliner Weisse (w/ Mango, Pomegranate.)
Hops: Magnum

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal.
Latest Return: June, 2017
