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.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Bottle. Murky, pale straw color with a white head. Very grainy aroma with a sour note to it. Tons of grains and lemons in the flavor. Somewhat bready and tart. I’ve always said these are my least favorite beers but they seem to be growing on me a bit. Clean dry finish with a lasting sourness.

high_on_hops (806) - Burlingame, California, USA - APR 16, 2016
On tap. Pours a light gold with a foamy white head and an aroma of tart fruit and a small amount of funk. The flavor is slightly sweet tropical fruit with a tart finish over a light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fin (9170) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Thirstybird and very kindly shared with a few Rbeerians at Merton Beer Festival, Saturday 27th February 2016, cheers Rian This pours light lemony pale gold with a white head that swiftly subsided, a slight haze. I know from a big discussion on one of the Forums that some folk were suggesting you cannot detect sour on the nose as it is a flavour indicator, well I say bollocks coz I get a sourness on the nose here it is a fruity, citrussy lighter variant of the vinegar sournessy that sees the nostrils flare and you recoil a touch, it is clean, refreshing and spritzy sourness, and as this is the only way I can describe it this is what I will stick with. These characteristics transfer seamlessly into the flavour department, bit funky also, really refreshing, tart, tangy, a good workout for the tastebuds and a good inbetweener and palate cleanser, more suited for a summers day but I like it regardless.

DandyWolfFloyd (984) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Aroma - chardonnay like vinous nature Appearance - body is a clean light yellow. Head is white and about 1/2" and fades fast. Taste - tart with a blend of straw, some peach, lime, and champagne yeast. Palate - body is medium, texture is dry and slightly vinous, the carbonation is lively, the finish is mega tart it engulfs the upper front gums with pure pucker. Truly unique!
