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.

05.12.2015, tap @ Smelteverket:
Tiny shortlasting head, very light color. Aroma is mild sour-ish, unripe berries, soda powder, minerals, citrus, hay, raw rhubarb, citrus acid. Taste is slightly sour-ish dry, soda powder, hay, sorrel, citrus acid, grass, unripe berries. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and watery mouthfeel. Nice enough, very clean and easy drinking.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Pours a cloudy, dark golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind. Slightly must aroma with a decent balance of musty funk, sweet citrus and bready yeast. Smells a bit tame for the style with faint lactic funk countered by citrus peel, lemon juice, zesty spice, pale malt and sourdough bread. Medium bodied and thankfully more interesting than the aroma suggests with a nice balance of funk and citric acidity. It’s still light and pretty tame for the style but you can at least pick up the wheat beer characteristics. Only slightly tart with more of a lactic presence than expected countered by sweet citrus, bready yeast and mild spicy. Faint peppery clove flavor countered by hints of lemon juice and sourdough bread. Not too exciting but well balance, clean, crisp and refreshing.

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. RJT

Cloudy straw yellow. Nose of wheat, lemon. Taste follows with light tart sour mash flavors and long wheat finish. Alright but too much wheat for me.

TATE (402) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JUL 28, 2015
On tap at Nocturnem. Pours very pale with a thin white head. Not my favorite style but it hit the spot at the time. Lemon up front, very tart but the finish was a little dryer making it more drinkable.

11.2 oz (really? looks alot smaller) from the Coop over the weekend for about $5. Poured into my New Belgium snifter. 1" head dies back to just a collar and no lacing atop a very clear wit colored brew... very light... Aroma is "wheaty" with a little bit of sour.. more grainy than anything. Flavor puts a couple punctuation marks on the aroma.. soft pale malts are punted through the uprights by the abundant lemon. I don’t really know what to say about this brew.. reminds me of green tea and lemonade without the sweetness.... drinkability is off the charts especially when it is still hot as can be at 1:00 am in Boise. Drinkable without being watery.. Body is light as expected.. but I am still a huge fan.
