BEER INFO

Brewed by:
4 Hands Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States | website

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.50%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
The name Prussia originates from Frederick the Great. Frederick was trained to brew this very delicate style of beer and later became the King of Prussia. Our interpretation of the Berliner Weisse style is very traditional. Prussia pours a hazy straw hue with a nice clean tart finish. Enjoy alone or with flavored syrup.

I had this on-tap at 4 Hands during a recent trip to St. Louis and before a Cardinal game that went 12 innings!

Served in a tulip.

A: Poured a fairly clear golden color, with a slight chill haze, and not much head to speak of. While it was Miler Lite-esque in appearance, I'll give it much more credit than that.

S: Mild, yet inviting, with some wheat, corn, and German malt, along with a fresh filtered water undertow.

T: The sour component was understated, yet still present under close inspection. Germanic in malt bill, mildly acidic, especially in the aftertaste, and became more and more pronounced the more I sipped.

M: Not much carbonation or lacing, but that's not what this beer was supposed to be about anyway. The bitterness was next to nill.

O: This was slightly disappointing, yet it was still good. Also, the prices at 4 Hands are very reasonable.

Massive frothy head after the pour does subside after about 60 seconds it almost entirely vanishes. Pale golden straw color and very cloudy. Aroma of pale wheat and pear like aroma. The mouthfeel is fairly carbonated and almost has a soda pop like consistency, but is also fairly brisk and refreshing. Fruity, yet tart and highly carbonated. A summer refresher.

Bottle (2012)

Thanks for opening this with me, JealousChalice!

Hazy golden with lots of visible carbonation and a moderately sized white head that leaves thin streaks of lacing down the glass.

Mild aroma, but what's here is very much to style: wheat, some acidic, sour character, a bit of lemon, and white fruit.

The flavor is similar, with wheat and lemon characterisitcs dominating, and a very mild sour component.

Medium bodied with high carbonation. Near-perfect for the style and incredibly drinkable.

A very straight-forward, incredibly drinkable Berliner.

Pours a slightly hazed amber with a sliver of beige head. Stays effervescent, near zero head retention & lacing

S: Hay, tartness, slight hints of dirt & that's about it

T: Tartness, hay & dryness up front. Faint golden delicious apple notes as this warms, plus tartness, a little bit of pear too. Finishes dry, tart & fruitty

MF: Light bodied with slight carbonation, slightly wet

Super refreshing & fairly spot on for the style, a bit too clean perhaps
