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.

Very sour. Tastes like a wheat beer gone wrong. Very low alcohol......this reminds me of a lemonade.

Hmm, somehow never rated this one. Pours a hazy pale deep yellow color with a quickly receding light tan head. The smell is juicy tart fruit, sour apples, easy wheat. The taste is as it smells. Quite tart, sour and dry. A lot of apple skin with some earthiness. The body is light with active carbonation.

ElDesmadre (2010) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle. Sour, milky and citric beer. Eau de Cologne, wet wood, wafers and a whiff of honey. Unexpectedly complex. Light, crisp and watery, initially a tad malty, finishing citric acidic and sour milky. A marginal salty note in the finish as well. The milkiness manages to emulate the non-existent body somehow. Well, it’s an interesting beer for sure. And not one I particularly like either.

Ferris (6745) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle - Soured wheat and some light perfumy notes. Clear yellow gold with a frothy white head. Tart, light sour lemon and some soapy notes. A nice classic version. Finish is really nice tart/salt.

mcberko (8283) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy dull yellow with a medium white head. Aroma brings out light citrus, wheat, and subtle tartness. Flavour is rather muffled, with very tart citrus and wheat. Pleasant enough, but not really a complex berliner in any way. Decent but underwhelming.

callmemickey (3365) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pale straw colored body, medium to thin white head upon pout, spotty lacing. Lemon juice, bright lacto wheat, some florals. Rather straight-forward, simple, and enjoyable. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, lively acidity, refreshing finish.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2014
On tap at the Pourhouse. Aroma is lemon juice and stale bread. Pours dull blonde and clear with some nice ginger ale fizz and efervescence. Taste is tart lemon peel, wheat, and stale bread. Nice tart and clean mouthfeel. A true pleasure to gulp.
