Cervejaria Dádiva + Japas Cervejaria + Hildegard Project | Marilyn

Marilyn is a Berliner Weisse with the addition of oat, vanilla and pitanga. While the oat gives the beer an extremely velvety body, the pitanga brings an elegant acidity which is balanced by a touch of vanilla. (Source: Loosely translated from the brewery's advertising material.)

  • Beer: Marilyn
  • Style: Berliner Weisse (29B. Fruit and Spice Beer - 23A. Berliner Weisse with Vanilla and Pitanga)
  • ABV: 4.1%
  • IBU: 17
  • Brewery:
  • Look: orange color, turbid, with a low white head formation that leaves marks on the glass. When I poured the rest of the can in the glass, it turned its color to a reddish-orange.
  • Aroma: the vanilla is really present, being the main aroma. There is also a light fruitiness, reminding of a fruit with citric notes, probably acerola or pitanga.
  • Taste: from the start, there is an interesting mix of fruity and vanilla notes. Here, there is a stronger feel that the fruitiness comes from pitanga. There is some lactic acidity as well.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation and a dry and short finish;
  • Overall: Great berliner weisse-based beer. The vanilla in this beer brought some childhood memories (AAS Infantil, anyone 1?)…

  1. Brazilian equivalent to Infant ASA, which (at least in Brazil`s version) has a strong vanilla aroma and taste.
