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.

330ml bottle from iowaherkeye. Thanks Joey. Poured a hazy yellow color after agitating the sediment at the bottom of the bottle. The head was bubbly, white, and reduced quickly to a thin film. Aroma was of lemon zest, honey, and cereal grain. Light and fizzy on the tongue with mild to moderate tart lemony acidity that peaked up front and gave way to a subdued malty caramel finish. There was also a cereal grain flavor throughout.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - MAR 2, 2008
11.2oz bottle. Served in a vintage pilsner glass @ ~55°. Aroma is is faint with sharp wheat and a sort of tart aroma, reminiscent of lemons. Color is incredibly light yellow, brilliantly clear, with persistent carbonation, and a smallish white head. A fair amount of yeast is left behind in the bottle and will readily mix with the beer is allowed to. Initial taste is sharp wheat and a bit of lemon followed by some tartness and a flavor that reminds me of fresh milled malted wheat. There is a light perfume flavor as well, but it is fleeting. The finish is mildly tart with some lingering light acidity. This is a very mellow Berliner Weisse, almost bordering on an overly tart, under hopped american wheat. I’m sure a good summer drink at 3% alcohol with a light body, active carbonation, light flavor, and a refreshing character, but it lacks the tartness and complexities the style often brings. This was purchased in KC, but I’m not sure if it was in KS or MO.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 29, 2008
bottle, pours nearly white pale yellow with medium to large white head. Big yeasties made it into the glass. Aroma is a sweet funky scent with some hallertau hops playing in the background with a touch of rotten fruit. Flavor is much better than the initial aroma. Sharp and tart up front with a nice lemony middle melting anway to reveal a long grassy dry finish. Very tasty despite the initial aroma.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2008
11.2 oz bottle from Yonkers65. Plenty of lacto funk on the nose. Bread dough, rotting pear skin, a bit of dank basement, sour milk. Pours a cloudy light yellow with a thin bright white head. Flavor has lot of moist bread dough, lemon zest, wet grain, lightly funky yeast and a pleasant lacto creaminess. Medium bodied. Quite refreshing with very crisp carbonation.

asedzie (679) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 22, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy champagne color, medium-sized white head, visible yeast sediment. Aroma is white grapes, pear, hints of light citrus, backed by mild fresh dough, fresh-smelling yeast. Flavor is mild graininess, dankness, tart, bright fruitiness throughout. Finish has lingering sour flavors and doughiness. Refreshing with interesting complexity.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2008
The aroma is pure heaven - wet grain, lactic sour milk, a bit of diaper. The pale color is lovely, the carbonation perfect, the wispy bottle conditioning near the end of the botttle -- all excellent and as should be. A touch watery on the body, but I’m not to the end of the pour yet. OK, there we go, a bit thicker (only a bit) but the yeast clove components come out more. Sour from lactic acid. Just freaking DIVINE!

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Cloudy pale gold with a quarter-inch white head that fades quickly. Sour, fruity nose; a mildly tart, crisp fruit flavor with touches of pear and citrus. Very dry finish. Enjoyable.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle from Belmont station. Pours a hazy straw color with white rocky head. Some lacing and head retention. Aroma of peardrop, apple, clove, sweet tarts, horsey blanket and banana. The flavor is very similar with the "giddy up" coming through along with some tartness. The tartness is good but a bit mellower than traditional BW sampled before. I like it but the aroma of the beer is a bit offensive. Tried with traditional syrups after intial tasting. The woodrup syrup is best with this brew, raspberry not bad too. I will revisit come warm months.

Looks like a slice of lemon meringue pie when you pour it: hazy yellow bottom, white top Lemony/yeasty aroma. Lemony taste. It’s sour as it’s supposed to be
