Star Of The North: Berlin Style Wheat BeerStar Of The North: Berlin Style Wheat Beer

Brewed by:
August Schell Brewing Company
Minnesota, United States

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Extremely pale yellow in color with a slight haze and a large, creamy, snow-white foam head. This beer is rather light on the palate and very dry. A lively carbonation accentuates the refreshingly tart acidity. Expect an interesting mix of fruity flavors reminiscent of ripe lemons and apple juice with a touch of spice and a subtle brett character.

Yeah, I did it. A perfect 5.

A fresh bottle, cork pops with gusto. Highly carbonated, pours an opaque gold with aroma of lemons and cereal grain. Lots of suspended yeast, banana and lemon and wheat flavor permeate a nicely balance acidic beer. It's dry yet thick, effervescent and robust. I could happily drink this all day.

This feels like a traditional Berlinerwiess, not overly acidic or fruited like so many other offerings. Just clean, happy to drink beer.

Schells- Keep it crafty down there in New Ulm.

Bottled June '13

A= Thus baby pours a nice light straw yellow color with a finger of active bubbly head that leaves little lacing.

S= The smell is amazing! Nice bright lemony wheat character A nice straw grassy character that reminds me of a prairie. Ideal for a Berliner in my opinion.

T= Tasty! A nice bright lemon character with a grassy prairie character. This is a perfect Berliner in my opinion.

M= Bright and shiny

O= This is the best beer I've had in a while and the best Berliner I've had to date. I really don't know if this beer could be any better. A perfect summer beer and a perfect Berliner in my opinion. I don't even like too many Schell's beers. They are usually a one and done company for me. I buy things to try their new beers and then never really try it again. This beer was different. A day after trying it I bought all of it I could find. Try this beer and buy a lot. They need to keep this one.

Pours a beautiful hazy golden yellow with about an inch of pure white head. Medium retention with little lacing. Some bready malt sweetness on the nose, but mostly a lactic/citric tart aroma. Smells great. When you first drink there is some malt sweetness that is slightly bready and even slightly fruity, although I found it hard to nail this down. This was replaced very quickly though by a clean tartness that I found very well balanced and by no means over whelming. Thinking green apples and champagne. Nice dry finish. The tart lingers nicely and there is a touch of funk in the after taste that could be attributed to either the yeast or the old Cypress tanks the beer was aged in. The body is light and easy drinking although perhaps under carbonated. This beer is fantastic, both my wife and I loved it. A great summer beer. For a Schells product I was floored. Not that they are a bad brewery, but this is far above the bar for them. I am headed back to the bottle shop for a few more of these.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Poured in 4 oz sample glasses - with and without the addition of Torani Raspberry syrup.

This is a beer unlike anything I've ever had from Schell's and it is nearly perfect!

Very light and crisp, almost wine-like in it's taste. Hints of lemon or even grape.

The "sour" comes at the end and a little bit of that is apparent in the initial aroma.

Among the three tasters present, it was a toss up as to whether or not the syrup flavoring was preferable. Both servings were very refreshing in the way a wine spritzer would be.

If my taste memory is intact, however, this is extremely close to a true Berliner Weisse.

Kudos to Jace Marti and crew at Schell's in New Ulm, Minnesota!

Been looking forward to this one. I love the story behind it and I love how one of my states great breweries is brewing something that not only have they never done before, but not many in the world are. Also one of the coolest bottles I've seen.

Pours a super cloudy straw yellow, with virtually no head. Looks like a headless hefewiezen.

There is this funky wheat smell upfront that I have never encountered before. Smells almost like that apple/cinnamon oatmeal minus the cinnamon. This blends with a nice lactic sourness and some more traditional brett funk. Very interesting.

Wow that is tasty. Right at the front you get that hit of lactic acid that all sour lovers crave. The sourness lingers, but never overpowers, while being softened by the wheat base. Classic green apple, some pear, hints of the barnyard and leather Brett notes come shining through in the middle. Some of the signature Schells mineral notes. Finishes clean with a bit of lingering wheat and just enough mouth pucker to keep you coming back for more. Great stuff.

Highly drinkable, super refreshing. Perfect champagne carbonation from the bottle conditioning. At this ABV i could, and would love to, drink this all day every day in the summer.

Overall, this one truly lived up to and exceeded my expectations. I am a huge fan of
sours and this is a great switch up from the, now familiar, Belgian varieties. What I love even more is how Schells, a brewery that recently failed the "craft brewery" label test, is putting this out. They brew wonderful representations of German styles, and never try to be anything they're not (they don't even brew a pale ale, let alone an IPA). I am proud to have these guys in MN. Highly recommended to anyone who can find it, and this definitely worth trading for if you can't. Cheers!

Smells like fresh bread dough, wonderfully tart and lemony effervescent – light. Long lingering lemony tartness, very refreshing. Acidity explodes across your palate. This is very well done and it does a touch of lemony tart thing for a long time – excellent - the bread flavors become very faint as you drink. Truly the champagne of the north.

75cl C&C bottle, bottled 6/2013, shared with Doug today while brewing. Poured into a Bell's snifter 9/9/2013. Review #199.

Looks like a Berliner Weiss. Pale, golden body with a nice thick head and good retention. Solid lacing. Looks so refreshing, it's looking perfect for the 93 degree weather.

Smell is delicious. Tart green apple acidity with a bit of white grape sweetness and even a slight bit of funk. Smells like a sweet, funky champagne really. So refreshing, we can't wait to dive into this beer.

Flavour doesn't let us down here. It's a full flavoured Berliner Weiss. Sweet, tart apple and grape fruit skins. Its not too sour, but just perfectly tart and lactic. A bit of lemon juice in here too to mix things up with a little acidity. This is a perfectly full flavoured Berliner Weiss.

Mouth feel is the best. Almost full bodied (really a medium body) but its so creamy and well carbonated that it drinks like a substantial beer. I look here and it says 3.5%, which blows my mind. Its such a full bodied Berliner Weiss with a great flavour profile that finishes just slightly dry. Its so refreshing and sessionable.

This is the best Berliner Weiss I've ever had. Beats out New Glarus' offering for sure. Its fuller bodied with much stronger flavours, with a puny 3.5% ABV hit. I strongly recommend this to anyone who likes the Berliner Weiss style.

Cork and cage 750. Nice little pop!

Pours a fizzy white head that settles down. Active carbonation in the glass.

Aroma: A lot of funk here. Sour funk. A nice lemon zest. Yeast and wheat. Barnyard goodness. A lot of flavor for such a low abv beer.

Taste: A lot of wheat up front. Sour lemons and zest. Bananas. A bit of red apples. Fairly fruity. Fairly funky. Not as much barnyard flavor here. A nice acidic flavor; nothing overwhelming.

Mouthfeel: Light, sour, and clean. Extremely light bodied. Decent amount of carbonation. Ends very clean.

Overall, this beer is spot on. I know I am not a b-weisse expert, but this tastes very German and authentic. I am a big fan of this. It is so easy to drink and provides way more flavor than you would expect from a 3.5% beer. A must try.

750 ML bottle poured into Surly Darkness Glassware, shared with scoand

A- Pours a very light golden straw color, nice carbonation coming up the sides of the glass, thin lacing, decent looking beer.
S- The aroma is very subtle, lemon zest comes out slowly, with a slight acidic tartness that lingers as well. My mouth is watering smelling this beauty, cant wait to try it.
T- The taste is very impressive, nice lemon zest flavor, tart and sour but not puckering, very balanced, some earthy notes, slight peppery taste to balance out the sour notes, slight clove as well.
M- Light mouthfeel, clean finish, very refreshing, easy drinkability.
O- Very impressed with this beer. Very easy to drink, refreshing, love the tart lemon characteristics. Very well made Berliner, but again i have not had to many berliners to compare it to. Im a Fan.

Had in a nonic pint.

Whoa, three finger's of crackling white foam. The plastic-y cap recedes quickly to a ring. Sunflower gold body has a great unfiltered haze.

The aromas are sweet and slightly sour, and not cloying. Lemon cake, powdered sugar, yeasty sourness, wheat bread. Not really a farmhouse scent, more clean sour, like what would be found in plain yogurt. Fantastic nose!

Flavors are similar to the nose with a slight tanginess leading. Mid - drink is soft on flavors of lemon yogurt, powdered sugar. This leads into granny smith apples, clean lemon sourness, and a flash of cracker malt and oak in the after taste.

Big medium body with a solid creaminess. It really adds heft to the beer. Still a little slick though, and in such a delicate beer, makes it seem almost flat. Long finish and slightly dry quality are another plus.

Star of the North is a real treat. Only 3.5 percent ABV? Not to worry, this thing is packed with tangy, sweet, and sour flavors that work wonderfully together. Please make this again!

Thanks Joe for sharing! Quick review from notes.
This was a highlight of the night.

Pours a brilliantly clear pale yellow, supercharged with champagne streamers of racing carbonation. Compact but sturdy head of bone white foam, it has a creamy texture and laces well on the glass.

Sour apple aroma with a slight cheese rind funk from the Lactobacillus.

Tastes like a very tart sour apple, super crisp and quenching, clean lacto tartness that dries out immediately in the finish. Expressive yeast flavors give it a unique fruity apple/crabapple taste and a vaguely funky wild yeast character. Spritzy champagne carbonation, zesty and light, just about perfect. The wood aging and Berlin yeast cultures seems to have benefitted this beer immensely.

One of the better American Berliner Weisse examples out there, hope they continue making this in the future.

Pours hazy pale gold with a less than one finger white head which vanishes quickly. The aroma has wheat, tart lemon, bread dough, and a little funk.

Tastes like tart lemons, wheat, bread dough, yeast, green apple skin, crackers, and there is also some acidity. A nice tart dry beer, which is very nice on a hot summer day like today.

Light bodied with modest carbonation. Has a tart lemon aftertaste, and finishes dry. this is a very nice Berliner Weissbier. I could drink this all the time, not just in summer.

Thanks to mattafett for gifting this bottle to me. Very generous of you! Thanks again!

loud pop when the cork comes out of the bottle.

Classy and simple looking 750ml C&C bottle; the beer is poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

bottled on 6/2013.

review #750.

Appearance: slightly pale and slightly hazy straw yellow bodied beer. Towering three fingers of white head that has decent staying power. The head slowely drops down to a thin cap. Spotty lacing.

Smell: Fruity, bright, tart, and lactic nose on this beer! Earthy and cheesy funk. Very yeasty. Wheat malts and fresh baked bread.

Taste: mild tartness. green apple skin and white grapes with a hint of yeast. Bready and wheat malts. Mild earthy funk that is reminacent of brett with a hint of oak. Hinting of citrus specifically lemons and limes with some light cheesy funk in the finish. Very well balanced and lots of flavor! WOW!

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Bright and refreshing. Sturdy and impressively clean. Super drinkable. As the beer rolls over your tongue, the bubles come to life with an eppervescent rush over your tongue and for a quick moment it makes the beer feel a little fuller almost like its creamy. As crazy as it sounds...I think that this beer drinks below its 3.5% abv.

Overall: This is the best Berlinner Weiss that I have ever drank. Its a true bench mark of the beer style. Its a timeless beer, that I dont think that I could ever get tired of it. This is the first and only beer that August Shell has brewed that really impressed me. This is a go to beer for a hot summer day to quench your thirst better than water. I think that this beer has a niche similiar to a table beer because it will hold up well with any meal or food you could think of. This beer would be a staple in my fridge if I could get a few more bottles of it!

Cork explodes out of the bottle. A gorgeous apple cider appearance with a noisy two finger head that recedes almost immediately, leaving a thin ring of carb that lasts until the last sip.

Wow. Mellow citric tartness, sweet grain... freshly malted wheat, it smells incredibly inviting. Like a light breakfast.

Spot-on traditional German example of the style. A thirst quenching under-ripe banana thing going on with smooth cereal flavors that aren't overwhelmed by tartness. Fresh and smooth.

Easily my favorite Berliner to date.

WOW!!!! Second Berliner Weisse i have ever tried and this was amazing!!!! Bready goodness with clean crisp lemony lactic acidity that fills the pallet. Slight funk but no horse leather funk that comes with brett fermented beers...very champagne like.... extrememly enjoyable...had with some improvised rasberry simple syrup and was superb with and without.

Tasted 20 July 2013. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a very pale straw yellow, clear from the top of the bottle, cloudy from the bottom. One finger white head, nice retention and fuzzy lacing.

Smell is a soft grainy aroma, with a little bit of sour and lemon. On the faint side.

Taste is a really nice balance of ripe wheat and light lemony sour. It's just enough sour that you can't miss it, but subtle enough that it's not mouth-puckering. Delicate and really nicely balanced; delicious.

Feel is quite light-bodied, fizzy, like a cross between a typical wheat ale and a typical sour. Has the slightly prickly carbonation of a sour, but also the fuzzy soft carb of a wheat ale. Awesome.

A really nice berliner weisse. Has a great green mid-summer wheat feel, and the touch of sour makes it all the more refreshing.

Hazy pale yellow, almost "white", with a gargantuan head, leaving copious lacing.

Aroma: weird and funky sour. Lemon peel. Cat pee. Sauvignon blanc.
Interesting stuff, to say the least.

Taste: Bracingly sour, and refreshingly so, too. More citric zest not he palate, more wild, sour funkification. Intense sour that never quits. Good consumability, nonstop refreshment. And never once did I cry out for a sweetening syrup.

I'm liking this lots. Good choice on Schell's part to put it in a large bottle at a high price. Not everyone's going to want to down this by the 12-pack. Hardly anyone, actually. And also cheers to them for actually brewing such a thing.

Poured from a 750 ml corked bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass. Bottled in June of 2013.

Appearance: Pours a pale and fairly hazy yellowish gold. Lots of fast rising bubbles and a solid three fingers of white head which fade into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A yeasty, tart, fruity, and fairly acidic wheat aroma, a lot like a white wine. German ale yeast with lots of funk. Big mix of white wine like fruits with hints of white grapes, pear, green apple, lemon, and orange. Light hints of banana and bubblegum. Tart cherry like hints from the Brett presence. Soft bready hints of wheat, pils malt, straw, and crackers. Slight hints of pepper. A very interesting and good aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma, very funky and white wine like, although with a stronger citrus presence. Upfront German ale yeast with a lot of funk and a little white pepper. Strong tart and acidic fruit presence with big notes of white grapes, green apple, pear, orange, and lots of zesty lemon. The Brett funk comes through with some tart cherry like notes. Subtle notes of bubblegum and banana. Wheat driven bready malt presence with notes of grains, straw, and crackers. A very zesty and good taste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Very juicy, tart, and prickly. Very smooth.

Overall: A really good take on the Berliner Weissbier style. Good fruity and acidic wine presence with an interesting kick from the Brett. Nicely done.

Taste: Tart lemons, tart and more tart! Bone dry finish.

Overall: Berliner Weiss is an interesting style and Schell's is a very good example. Tart, lemony, with a dry finish. A nice change of pace in the summer to mix in among the pilsners, wheats, and pales.

A: Pours a very light straw color with a nice white head.

S: Nice mild lactic acidity, some musty wheat, light notes of sour raspberry and wet wood, fresh grain in the nose. By the time you get down to the yeast dregs it smells pretty potently funky.

T: Taste bring moderate lemony tartness, some musty grape-like notes, lactic, crisp grain, slightly sweet wheat on the end, a hint of woodiness.

M: Light-bodied with zippy carbonation.

O: A very nice berliner weisse. Everything in perfect balance.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip.

Appearance: Extremely pale yellow with beautiful billowing head at first. It doesn't last too long though, and leaves just a thin line behind.

Smell: Loads of lemon, touches of chamomile and pepper. Pretty tart aroma.

Taste: Wheat and cracker backbone, with a strong lemon presence. Some white pepper on the finish. Maybe a hint of Brett. Wonderfully tart.

Feel: Very light bodied and fairly effervescent. Exceedingly dry and tart finish.

Overall: Nice to finally have a more authentic example of the style, as Bell's Oarsman and Dogfish Head Festina Pecha hardly count, and the only German one I had was heavy up on Brett (which was very good). But this is just fantastic, refreshingly tart and ridiculously drinkable. I am excited to see where Schell takes this new Noble Star series, as it essentially give them a line of Sours, albeit German-style.

Pours a lemonade color with one finger of head that quickly settled to a thin film. Light spotty lacing is left down the glass.

I get a lot of wheat in the aroma. In addition to the wheat is the mildly funky, cheesy, dirty sock smell. This smells like it could be very interesting.

Moderately sour and tart. The first sip is bracing but the palate quickly adapts. Underneath the wheat malt flavor is a developing Brett funk with complimentary tart apple and lemon hints. The finish is dry and acidic with a slight wheat aftertaste.

Light body but I think it is under carbonated. I think a more effervescent body would really excite the palate.

Happy that Schell's did a proper Berliner Weissbier instead of the half-hearted attempts by most other brewers. I am definitely going to pick up another bottle and let it sit for a year or two as I think this will develop into a real fascinating beer.

Big thanks to Cyclone8 for sending this one down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Pale yellow, very hazy, with a big fluffy white head that has poor retention. Medium visible carbonation after the big cork pop.

S: Tart, citric, moderately funky, with pale base malts and wheat. Overall impression reminds me of lemony feet.

T: Citric acid bite, light malt base with minimal husk character, barnyard and grassy funk. Lemon rind and funk in the hang with some hay-like graininess.

M: Light body, lively bubbly carbonation sensation, and no particular alcohol presence.

O: Quite tasty. Maybe not my favorite base berliner out there, but very well done. Recommended for a nice summery drink!

Coffee Grounds - Eau Claire, WI

Bottled June '13

Star of the North is straight up about as pale golden as you can get, straw golden to be more precise. The clean white foam is fizzy and audible, easy rising with a slow fall. The head has great staying power for so much snap, crackle, and pop eventually becoming a creamy cap. Bubbles run quickly to the surface. It's a great, champagne-esque looking beer.

The nose on this beer is slam packed full of everything you would want in your traditional Berliner Weiss and all in a tidy 3.5% package. A healthy dose of freshly baked wheat biscuit gets us moving and with that biscuit is a bit of wheaty twang. Bright lemon and lime acidity add a sweet and sour touch that I'm very fond of. There are even whispers of that minerality found in lacto that reminds me so much of wet sidewalk. For the size Schell's managed to jam a lot in the nose.

The flavor mimics the nose to a glorious degree. There's a mega shit ton of freshly baked wheaty biscuit goodness with as much twang to boot. The lemon & lime acidity comes in spades with an elegant sweet and sour complexity. A slight minerality brightens up the finish even more than the lemon has already managed to do. Nuanced and delicious.

As soon as this beer hits your tongue it's spritzy and effervescent. A tartness digs long the sides of the tongue. The body is light, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Balance is there but it leans more toward tart than sweet. I could drink this for days straight.

Schell, in Star of the North, probably makes my favorite Berliner Weiss that I have yet to come across. It's not the newfangled, sour 6%ers, but a traditional Berliner Style wheat with low alcohol, loads of flavor, and a brightness with no end. Buy this beer if you see it, it holds up very well.

great sour that comes cork and caged by Schell's Brewing considering it's the first of it's kind by them. Overall great smell and tastes very light and crisp. Slight sour taste makes the beer very drinkable. I am looking forward to more like this from this brewery
