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 from Five Points Bottle Shop (Atlanta Highway). Mild sour apple nose, sweat, and light citrus. Very pale, Chardonnay color. Easy thin citrus initial, wheat, and apple cider. Very thin body, acidic. Pretty tame for a Berliner. Not much for sourness.

No specific aroma. Color is an awkward yellow with some white foam that quickly recedes. Very light with a little carbonation. Taste is a quite sour without any citrus. Some sweetness. Not bitter. All right but not exciting sour

gildnerk (172) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2014
Tolle Berliner Weisse. Gießt ein helles, trübes Grün-Gelb mit einer kurzen weißen Schaumkrone ein, die sich schnell auflöst. Aromen von Limetten, Zitronen und Hefe mit überraschenden Beerennoten. Süß-sauer im Antrunk und wird sauerer. Leichter Körper, gute Karbonisierung.

Poured a pale cloudy yellow color with aromas of tart lemons and some wheat. Flavors are the same light and refreshing. Very enjoyable could drink many of these in one sitting.

Erzengel (5528) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2014
Süßlich-fruchtiger Geruch, wenig Schaum. Der Antrunk ist wässrig-mild. Sehr wässrig. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine sehr moderate Säuerlichkeit hinzu, die aber sofort von einer (für meinen Geschmack unpassenden) Süße aufgehoben wird. Kaum typische Säure spürbar. Der Nachgeschmack ist auch sehr wässrig. Leicht fruchtig-süßlich (Anklänge an Himbeeren oder rote Johannisbeeren), dabei leicht hefig-mild, aber sehr schnell abfallend. Der Geschmack ist sofort weg. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine leicht süßliche Note, die der von Leitungswasser sehr ähnlich ist.
→ Für eine (selbst nachgemachte) Berliner Weiße viel zu mild und „unsauer“. Außerdem viel zu wässrig & charakterlos. Echt schade! 8+12+4+5

Bottle. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Lemony and spritzy, slight sour, very thirst quenching and refreshing.

Bif (1698) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pale straw color with a small head. Aroma of citrus, grassy and tart. Taste is on the sour side, with citrus and bit of fruit. Distinct bitterness and a lingering tart finish. Fairly light body, with a definite sour and tart feel. Decent beer but not one of my favorite styles.

Nicely sour Berliner Weiss. Very refreshing - light, crisp and delicious! Very hazy straw color, slightly sour grassy nose. Light body and extremely quick drinking. I put this down in about 3 minutes - wish I bought more...
