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 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.

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 (374) - 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.
