BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Gasthaus & Gosebrauerei Bayerischer Bahnhof
Germany
bayerischer-bahnhof.de

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.

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.

A: Slightly hazy straw with a vigorous white foam collar that quickly disappears.
S: Citrus, lemon and faint wheat with a hint of barnyard.
T: Medium tart – comes across like an unsweetened lemonade with a touch of malt and fruitiness.
F: Champagne like carbonation, light body
O: Tamer than some Berliner Weisse, refreshing and easy to drink.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

A: crystal clear; pale gold in color; 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a very thin collar; no lacing;

S: acidic; slightly lemony and fruity;

T: more acidic that sour up front; acidity fades by mid-palate and the finish is purely lemony sour; no bitterness no bread or grain;

M: light bodied; highly carbonated; moderately dry finish;

O: TART: would be more refreshing on a hot summer day than with the 3 feet of snow I'm staring at;
