On tap at Brasserie V in Madison, Wisconsin. Served in a pint glass.

Slightly hazy straw-yellow body, one finger white head with good staying power, nice retention, some lacing. Smells of wheat, mild lemon acidity, on the light side, not too intense. A bit of breadiness to it as well. Flavour is similarly bready, wheat, a bit of lemon and minimal citrus, mildly acidic, light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, very drinkable, good carbonation. Missing a little bit of depth, comparative to New Glarus' Thumbprint counterpart. Overall, decent berliner; could drink a whole 75cl bottle in one sitting easily and not get a buzz.

Bruery Terreux Hottenroth Berliner Weisse. 750mL bottle served in a Pilsner glass. Beer pours very pale yellow in color, and quite hazy. Lots of white head, of course. Aroma is mild, but fresh, tart, and slightly lemony. Quite fizzy in the mouth. In different ways I'd describe the flavor in the same terms as the aroma: fresh, tart, clean. Gassy. Dry but impeccably balanced and thus, in combination with the comically low ABV, profoundly drinkable. I'm not a fan of the current sour craze, but in no way is this too sour for me.

November 21st, 2013 - My tasting notes got lost in the digital aether, from phone to Evernote account, but the Hottenroth left a deep impression - enough to remember it byy almost two years later. No photographic evidence exists either, it seems, but the aroma was clear and sweet, with a hint of that seaside town saline edge about it, and a flavor that was bright and acidic and funky, all within the play and bounds of good taste. The sugar is played way, way down to let the wheat and other Berlinerweisse cast play more than supporting roles. The very first Berlinerweisse I had impressed me more as a dessert beer, but this brew could be an appetizer beer, opening the meal with a grand note.
