Created by Dr. Fritz Briem, this beer is brewed as a collaboration between the Doemens Institute and Weihenstephaner. Half-liter bottle with loads of info, yet no freshness date; unpasteurized, unfiltered, and bottle-conditioned. Pours into the weizen glass a clouded, milky-yellow, lighter than a witbier, with high carbonation and a finger of white head that disappears, then reappears. It smells phenolic, spicy, almost funky, with tart, husky wheat, and a dash of hops. The flavor is similar, but adds a big lemon and yeast kick, a hefty lactic sourness, notes of banana, tart/nutty wheat, and a mild bitterness from the green/grassy/spicy hops. Its body is light, smooth, and almost dry, with medium carbonation and finish. My first experience with a Berliner Weisse - if this were a blind tasting, I'd call it a hefe gone sour... the intentional sourness, however, is pleasing and quite refreshing. Recommended, and worth seeking out.
