these always seem better to me when they actually come from germany, even when they play around with tradition a bit, like they do here with the inclusion of oats, always seems more honest and authentic than what the style has turned into in the states, which more often than not is a vehicle for adjuncts, especially lactose and fruit puree, none of that in here! a little cloudy but still bright in the glass, very pale straw color, nice and bubbly, short but lasting white head on it. the aroma is lactic and lemony, clean and simple there, and then earthy from the grain, still more wheaty than oaty to me here, and just a wrinkle of a german pils type malt too to me, that dusty dry european crackery thing. the flavor is pleasant, not too tart to drink a bunch of, filled out by the oats a little bit, softened maybe, its simple ina good way, i like how clean the souring is, and how much grain character comes out in this, a lost art in many american takes on the style. very dry, lightly citrusy on the back and, maybe a little hop bitterness too, this is real easy drinking and i enjoy the obvious contribution of the oats to the texture. this is delicious, lovely for spring weather too, recommended! also super affordable which is a bonus!

Pale yellow in color. Carbonation was great, however the head dissipated quickly, so quickly I couldn't tell what color it was. Nose is slightly pungent like a typically Weisse style. Taste was very drinkable and typical of the Weisse as well. Smooth drinking very good Weisse.

Pale yellow with a short lived head and a mild aroma almost like refrigerator oats made with yogurt (better than it sounds)
The taste is similar, but unlike, their regular Berliner. This one has more of an unflavored yogurt tartness rather than a lemon/lime sourness. The oats come through as grain sweetness similar to plain oatmeal or an oat bread.
Smooth and rich with the citrus for showing up in the swallow.
Very, very good and surpringly filling

12oz can. No dating information found. Label includes 'Tank Container Canning Project'.
Cloudy, pale straw colored body. One finger of soft white head.
Aroma of sweet fruitiness with a whiff of tart.
Taste is slightly tart, with an underlying layer of sweet fruitiness. Dryness from the yeast. Quick trail off in the aftertaste.
Smooth, medium mouth feel. Good presentation of carbonation.
Soft and refreshing and tart at the same time.

Hazy pale color with thin soapy white head that barely covers the surface. Delicate tart aroma. Tart white grape that's very dry on the taste and finish along with a little saltiness on the back side. Medium body. This is a super easy drinking beer. Really dig it.

Modernizing the old classic taste, but without making the style something that it's not supposed to be, the brewers at Boyerischer Bahnhof give their German our wheat ale makeover with oats.

The Berliner Style Weisse (Oat) beer pours with a moderately hazy canary yellow color. A short-lived but frothy head reduces to the slightest of traces around the edges in a mere minute or so as its appearance succumbs to its acidity within. Aromas of lemons still prevail, however it takes on more of a lemonaid shandy notion with a mounting on the powdered sugar, cereal and grain. Raw grain flavors come through with the taste of saltwater taffy, sourdough and light pastry tarte.

Flavors are foremost lemony, but soon followed by under ripened peaches, pears, white grapes, pineapples, and regular apples. As the fruity esters begin to fade, the crisp maltiness rises with a hints ofsugar cookie taste and confection sweetness. Still, the lemony and cidery sourness continue rise on the late palate

Light and refreshing on the palate with a crisp, clean, lemony acidic feel. Not overbearing or intimidating, the lactic quality of the beer is tempered well by the oat creaminess, slickness and body. Not nearly as acidic as many modern brewers make the style out to be, a, light vinous as found in zinfandels and chardonnays preside.

Poured from 12oz can into a dimpled mug. This can is labeled at 4.2% ABV, which might reflect a formula change since they last brewed the Berliner Style Weisse with Oats.

Appearance: light straw body with a tiny touch of haze and a finger of fizzy white foam which subsided quickly. It looks the part, that's for sure.

Smell: just a touch of funk and sourness on the nose of this beer; there's a light. refreshing maltiness that I imagine is the oats. It's not too bad.

Taste: a bit sour, a bit light and wheaty, and overall quite refreshing. The flavor is mild indeed, with minimal bitterness and not much complexity of character other than the light sourness. Light, but a good example of the style.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a moderate carbonation and a decent creaminess.

Overall: I like this beer - it's different and refreshing. It's a bit mild in character, but that's reasonable for the style, and it's got drinkability for days.

On-tap at Local option. Served in a tulip.

A - White foam settles to a cap, leaving behind minimal lace. Transparent straw body.

S - Lots of lactic sourness to it, with lemon, light wheat, and a touch of malt sweetness to it as well. Seems less bracing and acidic than the potato version, although it'd be hard to top that one.

T - This is also incredibly sour like the potato version. Wheat persists, but other malt sweetness drops away, yielding mostly lactic acidity, some mild vinous notes, and yeast flavors in the finish.

M - Dry, crisp, light body, with pleasant moderate carbonation. Again, it's quite acidic, reaching stomach-churning levels by the end of the glass.

D - I think I enjoyed this a bit more than the potato, as there was more flavor balance and spritz to it. Worth checking out if you see it around town. Also really nice to see some German breweries experimenting, even if only moderately so.
