On tap at Blue Monk. A good tartness, akin to an unsweetened lemonade, with a little brett and I believe malt to make it drinkable. Very good drinkability, suitable carbonation. Yellow body with a small white head. A good representation of what is often a yummy style.

Thanks to drabmuh for opening this up at a nice little tasting. Served in a Bruery tulip.

Pours a cloudy, pale straw yellow color. There is a touch of a white head and a slight bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brings some dry bread and a mild amount of funk. There's really a lot of breadiness in the nose. Someone said it smelled like farts, which was true. Lucky for Eric he was inhaling when that was said. A bit cheesy throughout, I concur. Sulfur starts to run a bit rampant as it warms up, especially in the flavor. Not much sourness. Really kind of odd. Not pleasurable.

EDIT: Had this one on tap at Rustico Oktoberfest 2011 and it was much, much better. Nice lactic presence with a bit of funk plus some really nice lemon and citrus in the background. Quite complex for such a low-abv beer. Impressive.

Original scores: 4.0 / 3.0 / 2.0 / 2.0 / 2.0

A sharply refreshing tart wheat based ale that breaks the mold of conventional Hefeweizens and continues the increasingly rare Berlinerweiss traditions.

As with most wheat beers, a hazy canary yellow hue allows for a diffused glow of light to penetrate. A dainty white glaze of foam provides the thinnest sheet across the surface of the beer and holds true form the first half of the session before succuming to the acidity of the beer. No real lace evident.

Musty grasses, lemon and lime, fresh straw and hay all give a glimpse into the oddly appealing scent. Very raw, rustic, and lightly bready and yeasty the beer carries a sweaty brine scent that reminds me of Belgian Lambics.

Flavors are much more intense with fruit tartness of lemons and limes, but with the earthy flavor of hay, straw, and grasses before turning lightly musty-dusty, before the salty brine and intense tartness sets in. The intensity of tartnss nearly locks the jaws on the first sip and causes a clean acidic sweat to bead on the cheeks. After the palate acclimates to the beer (two or three sips) the intensity calms and the beer reveals a very crisp, clean, and refreshing tartness as a good subsitute for lemonaids.

The sharp and acidic feel disguises an underpinning of lightly bready malt texture and timid creamy carbonaiton at the on set. But the finish of palate-stripping acidity, astringency of lime pith, and thin sourness makes this beer very clean and challenging to the mouthfeel.

A delicious sour German wheat beer with a plethera of complexity packed into a 3% beer. More of these beers are welcome in my glass!

Bottle: Poured a hazy pale yellow ale with a large pure white bubbly head with strong carbonation but not much retention or lacing. Aroma of funky barnyard notes and sour notes are more dominant then expected. Taste is a complex mix between loads of Brett with some tart and sour notes with a dry finish. Body is about average with strong carbonation. Interesting though maybe a tad too sour to be an everyday type of beer.

pours a sparking hazy light golden color with a big three finger head of white that clears the top of the glass and settles down lightly to a thin coating along the top. lots of carbonation bubbling up throughout the session.

aroma is light sour and acidic tartness. green apples with a mix of light hay and sour grapes. simply remarkable. as it warms the crisp and clean sour flavor really starts to come through quite nicely as the light nature of it really becomes apparent as you take the first sip. remarkable that this much flavor is coming through. crisp, clean, refreshing and light the nature of this throws me for a loop, as if it simply could not get any better. crisp green apples dominate the flavor with a light grassy note coming in the finish along with an amazing dryness.

Sampled two bottles, the first one smelled very different than the second. The only difference was that the first one was chilled for a couple hours, and the second one overnight. Not sure if this had any effect at all. May try a 3rd bottle at room temp to see if the Brett funk is more pronounced.

Poured into a tulip glass, it has an attractive pale pastel yellow color, topped with copious white foam that laces a bit. Sparkling soapy foam, long lasting. Charged with streams of rapid champagne carbonation, streaming upwards through the hazy murk.

First bottle had a downright unpleasant aroma of sharp white vinegar and sulfur (rotten egg). Second bottle was a bit more muted, but still funky, signature Brett notes of musty wet hay and light traces of white vinegar. The 3.0 aroma score is an average of the two (2.0/3.5) rounded up. 3rd bottle: at 50º still very sulfuric.

Flavor was identical in both bottles, crisp tart lemon, dry grainy wheat, wet stone minerality. Slight odd aftertaste of corn tortilla chips, likely attributed to the Brett yeast. Body was very light and crisp, effervescent and quenching. It was nicely refreshing, it was hard to slow down and sip it after the initial shock from the aroma wore off. Trying again a 3rd time at 50º cellar temp, the sulfur was still very present in the nose. Chill overnight and let sit after pouring for best results.

2012: Draft version... less Brett character, tart and crisp, nearly watery, seemingly less complex than the bottled version. Would put it behind 1809 in overall scores, but leaving bottle scores unchanged here.

Incredibly pale yellow color with a huge white head. The nose is very light and lactic. Lemon peel, straw, and a light funkiness. Very minimal malt or wheat aromas. The flavor is, somehow, even lighter. Very spritzy. Light lemon peel, a touch of grass, and the lightest flavors of wheat. Just a hint of tartness on the finish.

Served in a Schneider weizen glass at Local Option.

I remember having this back-to-back with the un-brett-ed version, but I never got around to getting my thoughts together. Here we go a-rectifyin'. This stuff pours a clear pale straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises lemon rind, wheat, light brett, and grass. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a light but distinct cut of tart lemon. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, sticky finish. Overall, a very nice B-Weiss, one that seems helped a touch by the brett addition.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours with a huge, white head of foam that settles rapidly despite vigorous carbonation rising to the surface of the beer. The body is straw yellow and perfectly clear.

S - Acidic and very funky. Intense, earthy sewer aromas. Smells vaguely like what you get when you clean out a drain trap (though it isn't quite that unappetizing).

T - Very dry, but only slightly sour. This seems much more champagne like than other examples of this style. The dry, vinous character remains through the middle with some light pineapple notes of brett and a hint of soft honey malt. There is a some slight residual sweetness in the finish with a bit more malt character showing through the funk and acid.

M - A thin body, very high carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - The aroma is really quite over the top with a funk character that borders on foul. Fortunately the flavor is much more pleasant and surprisingly restrianed. The acidity is much milder than I expected based on the aroma and despite is champagne like character is maintains a certain creamy malt quality that lingers on the palate after the beer is gone. Very drinkable and quite an interesting take on the historical possibilities of this beer.

I had this on-tap at Max's. Served in a taster glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear light yellow with a finger of fluffy white head and good retention.

Smell: Tart citrus, I'm picking up lime. The beer also smells a little bit sweet.

Taste: Extremely tart up front, like sucking on lemons. I wouldn't say there is much body, but given the abv there is an unbelievable amount of flavor. The finish is very sour.

Mouthfeel: Light body with very strong carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: Very easy to drink. Tart and refreshing. I could literally drink this all night long.

Had on tap at Max's Taphouse in Baltimore, and merged with review from Ebenezers.

Big creamy head, quite clear watery pale pilsner color. Nice lacing as the head slowly fades.

Nose light sour fruits, grape skin, light funk, light lemon, light straw like malts, and hint of creamy like malt profile.

The younger version at Max's had nice sour tart fruity, bit of funk but not a lot, sour dough, light lemon, crisp, little flemmy finish, nice tart light fruit, dry bready finish. The older one from Ebenezers added a ton of sourness, damn sour! Light lemony puckering tart fruit, light golden malts, hint of a vinous like tart fruit flavor. Very dry as well with a bready malt taste. Finish of bone dry, bready malt taste, long tart sour lemon finish. some acidity and very mouth watering.

Mouth is lighter bodied, mouth puckering and light decent carb. Bone dry.

Overall nice, super sour, move fruits and malts, great display of the lambicus wild yeast, without anything else really stepping in, but seems to lack much profile other than the sour fruit.

Oh yes. Gimme, gimme that Brett. Nice funky tones, but mild ones. Some banana wrapped up in there. Super smooth and extremely easy to drink. This is a nice Berliner Weisse. Too bad we can't have more of them like this. Or, just more of them, period.

Bottle purchased from West Lakeview Liquors. Served in a Night of the Living Ales taster pint glass.

A - Ridiculous foam that quickly sizzles to a thin ring and partial cap. The body looks like hazy lemonade.

S - Slightly rotten stone fruits, sweat, funky, pineapple, lactic sourness, yogurty. Smells a lot like you'd expect from a Berliner with brett - quite potent.

T - Taste is a lot less complex unfortunately. Mostly lemons and lactic acidity, with plenty of yeast character. It's refreshing, but just somewhat bland compared to the aroma.

M - Extremely zesty carbonation, light-bodied. Lightly yeasty, dry finish. Very refreshing.

D - I could drink a lot of this. I just wish it tasted a little more like it smelled, as there was a pronounced drop-off in complexity and intensity.

From 09/21/12 notes. Had this on tap at Max's in Baltimore at their German Beerfest.

a - Pours a hazy straw yellow color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of lemon, citrus, floral hops, grains, earthy notes, and light lactic notes. Pretty nice; not as sour or funky as I was hoping though.

t - Tastes of citrus, lemon, funk, lactic notes, sour lemons and fruit, grains, and floral hops. Much better than the nose with some nice funk and sourness to it. Certainly not too sour, but enough to make it enjoyable.

m - Light body and low carbonation. Light acidic notes, but overall pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty nice berliner. Not super sour or anything, but the taste has some light sourness and funk to it which I liked a lot. Worth checking out and I would have it again.

So I split this bottle with the other Matt after my adventures in babysitting episode...not as exciting as the books which I assume were quite good but since I'm not a 13 year old girl and/or boy crazy I never bothered reading them.

At 3% this beer weighs in as a TRUE SESSION ale. if anyone cares. The beer is yellow and hazy, soft white head, some retention, high carbonation, no lacing.

Aroma is creamy and tart like lemons with citric and lactic acid.

Beer is wet and thin, easy drinking, I could kill a keg of this in a single day. It's like tart grainy water...super refreshing. I'm dinging it on the score because the Brett l character is a little muddled, I think this beer should be aged on unroasted oak to improve the back flavors with more tannic flavors on the finish. I've got one more of these and I'll drink it soon too.

Served in a bottle at Sunset Grill & Tap in Allston, MA

A: Pours a very hazy pale straw yellow with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and lemon yellow + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy white head that slowly reduces to a medium sized medium thick cap with a very thin film surrounding it and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of tartness/sourness that I have come to expect for the style along with some definite notes of the brett (slightly funky sour). Underneath there are lighter notes of lemon, wheat, and grass.

T: Upfront this beer has a moderate to strong flavor of lemon tartness over the top of light to moderate flavors of wheat and something almost grassy. Then the brett funky sourness comes out and is moderately strong. Overall this beer is not too tart but there is a definitely sourness present.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Moderate amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: As someone who really enjoys this style and sourness to a beer in general, I am impressed with the amount of flavors packed into this beer considering the low ABV - I could drink many of these in a day. So refreshing!

Thanks to coreyfmcdonald for hooking me up with a couple bottles of this.

A stubby 11.2 oz brown bottle poured into a pint glass. Upon cracking the cap, it left out a loud hiss that immediately produced a swelling formation of large bubbles inside the neck of the bottle that slowly started to creep up to the opening so I slowly started the pour down the side of my pint glass. About an inch of brew settles in the glass underneath a mountainous 4+ fingers worth of cotton white fluff. A constant stream of bubbles erupts to the surface and in a short amount of time there is less than a finger of white uneven, cratered head sitting across the top of the brew. Unfortunately the violent eruption of carbonation releasing from suspension causes the thick layer of sediment on the bottom of the bottle to get dispersed throughout the solution. It takes 3 slow pours to finally get the majority of the brew out of the bottle and into my glass. Now, here we go, but first an unusual sensory experience to take note of. This brew is loud... yes loud, it pops and fizzes quite audibly as the head recedes down to about a finger of large bubbly head. The color of this brew is like fresh lemonade. It is a light clouded yellow cream color with quite a visually moving head that is still trying to put on a show after the initial surge of huge froth has gone. The surface of the solution seemingly boils as the carbonation is released. A swirl reforms a finger of white head that again presents the audible pops and fizzes.

This is a complex, super enjoyable aroma coming out of this little guy. Initially it smells like yogurt with a lightly sweet scent that is reminiscent of original pink bubblegum mixed with fruit somewhat like pear but not quite as pronounced as other examples offer. It also contains a funky aspect that is quite sour smelling mingled with sulfur, lemons, grass (well more earthy than grassy) and wheat. No one single component of the nose overpowers the other, it is all well blended, integrated and enjoyable. The taste is tart like lemons mixed with a lightly souring aspect that is a little funky and slightly different from what the nose led on. A hint of sulfur creeps in mixed with a flavoring of greek yogurt. Throughout the light body of this beer is a constant reminder of a fresh grain taste that is like wheat/cereal grains. It leaves a lingering taste of lemon inside the mouth coupled with a yeastiness that provides a lingering tartness. Excellent.

This is a light bodied brew that is a little thicker in the feel for the typical berliner weisse (pushing medium bodied possibly due to the extra yeast in suspension making it feel creamier.) It has an excessively aggressive amount of carbonation that is a touch too much even for this style which is expected to be lively. It is tart enough that it creates the minor puckering quality that yogurt has as it seeming strips the moisture out of your mouth. It finishes crisp and refreshing, this style is the epitome of summertime refreshment and this offering/take on the style is awesome. Drinkable as all hell, I actually had to open a second bottle just to finish the review because I had the first glass gone before I even wrote anything about the taste. This lambicus example offers a unique opportunity to experience the different types of brettanomyces. Instead of the typical funked, horsey barnyard notes, this type of brett offers up more of a unique sourness with light fruit notes that provide an awesome addition to this style of brew. Well done, it was my intension to drink and share a couple of these before setting some in the cellar to try and forget about to see how the brett further developes...that obviously isn't going to happen now. I like this beer too much and it's not going to last long. I need to get some more of these.

Sampled at Redlight Redlight; January 2011
This arrives from the tap with a pale blonde color that is quite hazy and it is topped by a big, frothy, white head. This has a very dirty-foot type of nose to it that is musky and musty. The finish of the aroma sees a hay and musty grain like note to it. After a bit of time I get a solid lemon-like tartness to the aroma.

The beer tastes quite dry, which is accentuated by a lactic acid tartness, the fact that it is so light bodied and that it has a spritzy carbonation; all in all this makes for a very refreshing brew. Somehow this seems milky, I am not sure why but it seems to have something to do with the lactic acidity. This really doesn't seem any different than the regular version of this beer to me.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!

The beer is hazy and yellow, with a sizable white head. The aroma is a bit funky, tart, citric, and altogether enticing. The beer is teeming with flavor, and at a mere 3% abv. Quite impressive. The feel is thin and watery on the palate, in a pleasant and refreshing way. The flavor also brings forth the tantalizing tart citrus and funky brettanomyces found in the aroma. This would be an ideal beer to have on a hot summer day. I wish I had a keg of it at home.

A bottle into a curved DFH pint glass, served chilled on a sunday.

Berliner Style Weisse Brettanomyces Lambicus Special Edition from Gasthaus & Gosebrauerei Bayerischer Bahnhof goes in the glass a very light straw yellow color with a nice bright white bubbling foam that resembles champagne bubbles, no stick.

Smell is bright with the base beer but the brett almost over dominates that. That's a good thing as the base beer kinda smells off. Bright brett with lemon drops and some fresh wheat. Smells like a winner.

And tastes like a winner, the brett does subtle wonders to the beer and shines with light barnyard, hay and wheat. A lemon bite with each sip up front followed by light brett and wheat in the finish. Wonderful stuff.

The feel is so light in this Berliner that I could just drink it all day. It won't fill you up and bloat you, totally the opposite, it may clean you out after a few. Carb is spritzy and refreshing. Aftertaste is tart and not over lingering.

All in all, If this was not 5 beans a bottle, this would be an all day beer. The yeast works wonders to an average beer and takes it there. Easy to gulp down and it won't get you drunk. Had this on tap fresh when it hit the docks and I enjoyed this semi aged bottle a bit better.

Picked up a bottle at IM Wine in Laurel.

Pours a clear, pale straw color with a large, creamy white head that slowly fades away to nothing. Pleasant funky and lactic nose, with lemon and light citrus, some bread. Flavor starts with a fruity, strong citrus juiciness before quickly turning lemon and lime sour and mildly funky. Slightly grassy throughout, and a pleasant lactic finish. Medium light body, crisp and well carbonated with a dry finish.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

A real nice pale lemon, nearly getting to white on the bottom of my glass, but giving a real heffeweizen color of straw, even faint green hues to this. White soapy head hits large and falls very fast, but there's lots to see coming out of the glass. Lots of fast rising carbonation, and there is no collar. Great color though.

Large brett on this, with a fantastic lemon sourness. Very wet and clean smelling with a good wheat density. Faint clove and lots of hot heating yeast. Real nice.

Palate hits with a true incredibly tart and sourness. Sour lemon, with a refreshing hot crispness. Malt density seems a little subdued with a fizz quality that sort of detracts but not entirely. Sharp crispness, lots of tangy feel on this, almost like pop rocks.

Overall, a great refreshing beer, brett angle hits on the nose, but is sort of lost after repeated sips. No complaints, still solid and quite a fun beer.

Pours a hazy, pale golden yellow color with a 1.5 finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind. Visible carbonation bubbling up.

Earthy aroma with a very strong funky bret presence along with bready yeast, spice, banana and lemon peel. The funky bug character is a bit overwhelming with a sulfuric barnyard presence that is slightly off-putting. Hints of bandaid, feet and horse. You can still pick up the wheat beer elements but the funk is a bit strong in the nose.

Medium bodied with lots of tight carbonation up front and a tart funky bret presence that lingers throughout into a lingering dry finish. Although it's dry and funky, it's still light, crisp and refreshing. Very tart and dry without being too acidic. Underneath the dry, funky bret there are hints of earthy grass and straw as well as some spicy clove, banana and lemon juice. It's pretty tart but not as unpleasantly funky as the aroma suggests. Decently balanced and once you get over the initial palate shock it's pretty refreshing and quaffable.

This Berliner Weisse is a golden-hazy color with a very light-bubbly head. The head dissipated quickly to one side of the glass creating a boomeranged shaped head; After five minutes the head was gone altogether. One of the beer's most noticable qualities is its extreme carbonation. Looking down on the surface of the beer one can see carbon dioxide bubbles penetrating the surface and popping.
The aroma of the Brettanomyces Lambicus contains both lemon and lime tartness. Most likely due to the addition of Brettanomyces, a wild yeast, a musty quality adds complexity to the aroma.
The first sip has an initial wave of lemon tartness that is amazingly sour. Once this sourness recedes, an earthiness (grass or straw) enters into the taste profile. Within this second taste, the Brettanomyces rears its funkiness balancing the finish nicely.
The initial level of carbonation was one of the highest levels that I have observed, and it did not disappoint. The bubbles constantly pricked my tongue all over. The body was light and very refreshing.
This a delicious sour wheat beer. Given the intensity of the carbonation some people may be put off, but to pack that much flavor into a beer with 3%ABV is truly the work of an skilled brewmaster. (Thanks, Matthias! Keep sending your Leipzig Sour Beers to the United States and they will find their way into my glass.)

On tap at Max's.

The beer pours a pale gold color with light lacing and modest head retention. The beer seems very well carbonated, with good action. Mouthfeel is quite wheaty, with a sour overlay. There's a hint of honey as well. The flavor profile is a real jolt and is incredibly tart. I get considerable lemon and lime, but also something of a yeasty, french champagne flavor. The amount of flavor this 3% abv. beer delivers... it's nothing short of astonishing. Mouthfeel is light and tittilating, with a fairly long, tart finish. Drinkability is exceptional of course.

Yummm... this is an absolute treat. Great stuff!
