BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Gasthaus & Gosebrauerei Bayerischer Bahnhof
Germany

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.

Pale straw color with a short white head and little lacing. Beer is tart and crisp with a nice dry finish. A great take on the style. Definitely a beer I would buy again.

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.

Clear straw colored pour with a white one-finger head. Aroma of yeast, grain and light funk. Taste has a nice tart lemon flavor upfront backed by some yeast and grain. Very light bodied and refreshing.

Nice white head and light straw color. Strong sour smell, tastes great, nice and tart. Very true to the style, As expected from this old brewery. At 3% I would drink this all summer long if not for the high price. 4.75

Extremely pale and clear with moderate white head. Smells tart and tangy. A light, refreshing taste, just a little on the mouth-puckering side. Delightful.

Pours clear yellow with huge head. almost looks like a glass of champagne. minimal lacing.
Nose is earthy and farmhouse-like. Lemon notes and a bit meaty.
Smooth and light mouthfeel, that ends in a burst of carbonation.
Aggressive sourness gives way to a well-balanced yeasty weisse.
Finishes clean and crisp.
Very good beer. crushable, even though it is sour. solid summer choice.
