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.

Pours a cloudy yellow with only minimal head. Intriguing aroma of grains, farm ground, vegetal, earth, hay... whatever. It has a strange smell but it is far from repulsing. Taste is tart but not so much, I thought all berliner weisse were supposed to be crazy sour/acid? It is really quenching though, I can really see myself enjoying one in the sun. Overall a nice and citrusy drink that is not agressive at all and might just be a gateway berliner for some.

gildnerk (127) - 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.

burg326 (3575) - Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2014
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 (2397) - 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 (1392) - 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...

alexsdad06 (5338) - Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Pours a clear yellow golden color with very little head. The aroma and flavor have tart/sour lemon citrus, tangy, somewhat soft finish, a juicy component to the nose has some sweetness, decent, but soft.

Homer321 (1809) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle thanks to drowland. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with large white head that dies immediately. Aroma is fruity like apples with a papery oxidized aroma. Taste is initially puckering but then is just full of fruit. Lots of apple. Taste seems a little sweet as well. This one isn’t my favorite by any means. Seems to be tired, oxidized, and just weird.
