Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Huguenots may have originated the style as they traveled through France to Flanders, having first mentioned it in the 1600s. Later, in 1809, Napoleon and his troops identified Berliner Weisse as the "Champagne of the North". He requested the beer be served with syrup to cut its extreme level of acidity. Our interpretation is a slightly softer, more mellow version of the "Berliner Weisse" style with a beautiful balance of tartness, fruitness, and sweetness.

A: Peachy yellow and cloudy with a apparent mother on the inside of the glass like kombucha. A finger of white head that fades fast.

S: Sour tart quality with some witbier coriander and light lemon as well as a plastic sort of funky quality. Corn and yeast as well.

T: Sour like apple cider vinegar in water, some corn, and a dough yeast quality. Tart and crisp. The coriander witbier quality is only in the background.

M: Light crisp body, with little carbonation.

O: . Not awesome, but nice to find an example in this style that is assumedly close to the original style of the beer. Bought at Bruisin’ Ales Asheville, drank at Deerfield Beach, FL.

Berliner Style Weisse has a thick, white, fizzy head, an initially clear, pale, straw appearance, with some lazy bubbles, that turns into a gray-lemon-yellow opaque number, once the caked sediment is swished loose and poured in. Lacing is practically non-existent. The aroma is of sweet, fruity, citrus wedding cake icing and cream. Taste is of tart Halloween semi-soft candy, cream, and sourdough bagel. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Berliner Style Weisse finishes crisp and lemony.
