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.

Pours a beautiful old gold and clear - left about an once of beer along with the sediment in the bottle. The carbonation is ridiculous, not a gusher when opened, but in my duvel tulip the bubbles are crazy for thr nucleation point on the glass - never seen abeer so carbonated. Nose has some really bright lemon with a slight acidic funk. Taste is bracing citrus and acidity but the sourness was far from overpowering. Finishes very refreshingly and begging for another sip. Outside of festina peche my only other attempt at this beer. My girlfriend who loves festina says that this beer was better and i tend to agree
