COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Huguenots may have originated the style as they traveled through France to Flanders, having first mentioned it in the 1600s. During their time, there were said to be seven hundred weissbier breweries in Berlin. Later, in 1809, Napoleon and his troops identified Berliner Weisse as the Champagne of the North. He requested the beer be served w/syrup to cut its extreme level of acidity. Bayrischer Bahnhof’s interpretation is a slightly softer, more mellow version of the “Berliner Weisse” style with a beautiful balance of tartness, fruitness, and sweetness.

Bottle thanks to drowland. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with large white head that dies immediately. Aroma is fruity like apples with a papery oxidized aroma. Taste is initially puckering but then is just full of fruit. Lots of apple. Taste seems a little sweet as well. This one isn’t my favorite by any means. Seems to be tired, oxidized, and just weird.

This is my favorite Berliner beer. While the alcohol content is very low, the overall flavor and taste are so unique that I always look forward to buying one of these during my trip to the beer shop. I like the sour taste Of this beer. Perfect for an early spring Night with a a big bowl of salty boiled peanuts!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOTTLE 50CL from . Thanks, ! Look: dirty pale golden, almost beige body, small white head. Aroma: wheat bran, yeast, light fruit, white grapes, some malt sweetness even. Taste: quite aggressive prickly lactic sourness, bran/husk, light body.

Light and refreshing but a bit too „dirty”.

Bottle as shown thanks to Rainer. Pours a cloudy pink beige with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong lacto, oak, horse blanket. Thin mouthfeel and warhead like sourness with strong tart finish. SO sour, really enjoyed this one.

ScipioA (302) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 23, 2014
11.2 oz bottle poured out into a tulip. No syrup around, don’t even know what a woodruff is. It pours out a hazy yellow/white with a big white head that quickly fades away. Tangy aroma halfway between a wheat beer and a run of the mill German lager. Flavor obviously dominated by the sour lactic flavor, reminds me of the juice from those plastic squeeze lemons. There’s a little funk hiding in both the flavor and the aroma. The light and fizzy mouthfeel enhances the flavor. Good and fairly easy to find representation of the style, I appreciate being able to find a sour that’s not in a giant 750 ml bottle! That said it’s pretty pricey for what you get.

Cantabrian (817) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 21, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 My first "real" Berliner Weisse. Nice, sour, crisp, bubble gum flavour, lime and bakery by-products. Thick on the palate. Lovely with raspberry cordial.

Brouwerij (929) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden yellow, fairly hazy, likely due to recent transport. White head, settles quickly with no lace. Aroma is wheat, mildly tart, citrus. Flavor is orange, lemon, mildly tart, sugary sweet, hint of orange soda, with a mild, sweet wheat finish. Light and mild for the style, quaffable and pleasant. Moderate carbonation, light body, crisp texture.

Reynolds314 (2331) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Fizzy lemony tart and lightly sweet. Nothing remarkable but something that i wish i could get a 12 pack of on a hot summer day. Refreshing crisp and good.

tom10101 (2767) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Clear yellow/golden with a small mostly lasting white head and little to no lacing. Aroma is of hay, lemon, light tartness, light yogurt and wheat. Taste is slightly tart with lemony notes, yogurt and light hay. Light body. Fizzy carbonation. Crisp. This one isn’t complex by any mean, but it’s heavily drinkable and quite refreshing. I would drink this on a regular basis.
