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.

This pours light straw and translucent. A thick fine bubble head slowly retreats to a minimal rim. No laces. It takes a while to settle. Excellent clarity. The smell is mainly dusty grain with a little sourness. The taste however is very different. Fairly tart with a light malt presence. Minor notes of white grapes, oak, and wheat. High carbonation, light body, and mostly smooth. This is a great summer time and or lunch ale. I highly recommend this ale if you are a fan if sours.

Tall head that quickly recedes to nothing, with no lacing. Cloudy straw yellow/lemonade color. Smell is lactic acid, lemon, and bready, and the taste mostly follows this. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a dry finish. A nice example of the Berliner Weisse style.
