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.

Look: Super clear completely see through

Smell: lemon, grassy, earthy, white grape.

Taste: right upfront I'm getting that white grape transitions in the mid palate to tart lemon earthy grassy notes in the finish I get a touch of orange peel and tart white grape lingers in the finish.

Feel: light body high carbonation crisp dry finish.

Overall: I like what's going on in this beer just enough tartness to complement the rest of the flavors. It's a really good beer.

Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a mug. The appearance is a bright slightly cloudy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is full of citrus, hops and grass. The taste is slightly tart with a lemon feel.
