BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Professor Fritz Briem
Germany

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Already in the 1600s the Berliner Weisse Style Beer was mentioned in documents by the French reformers "Huguenots" as they crossed Berlin on their way to Flanders. In 1809, the Emperor Napoleon and his troops celebrated their Prussian victory with it.

This Berliner Weisse Style Beer is brewed with traditional mash hoping [sic] and without wort boiling. This along with a traditional strain of lactic acid bacteria provide a fruity and dry but palateful character. A character that Napoleon and his troops characterized as "lively" and "elegant".

Historic Signature Series:

Forgotten styles brewed according to their historic recipes by Dr. Fritz Briem, of the Doemens Institute.

A - Hazy pale yellow, like a slighty more colorful lemon juice without the pulp.

S - Banana, clove, wheat; just like a Bavarian hefe, with a slight sharp twinkle in the background.

T - Big banana, clove, and wheat taste, again, very much a Bavarian hefeweizen, with a pronouced mild tartness that instantly makes you think of lemons with white grape skins. Fantastic and refreshing.

M - Very bubbly and effervescent, with a heaviness between that of a standard every-day Berliner and a gold-standard hefeweizen, ie Weihenstephaner.

O - Recommended. Great summer Berliner, not very tart, but very flavorful, especially for 5% abv.
