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.

Bottled. An unclear light golden beer with a huge white head. The aroma has notes of malt and citrus as well as lighter notes of wheat. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and citrus, leading to a dry, bitter, and lightly citrusy finish. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.

42nd Floor Tasting. Thanks to Paul. Almost clear gold beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry, modest fine carbonation. Dirty dry stale start, a little lemon zing lifts it but then it a dusty and woody finish, dry. Bleh!

Travlr (19477) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Draught at Churchkey, thankfully without any of the added syrup that they had on hand. Cloudy pale yellow, white edge head. Aroma of slightly sour lemon. Taste is crisp, hi carbonation, with plenty of citrus and moderate sourness. Good character, head and shoulder above others in the style.

Cloudy light blond color; high carbonation and therefore quite big head. I expected big sour aroma, instead the sourness is very controlled, with a peachy presence, some jam too, and very light honey. The body is weak, the mouthfeel is dry; some sourness, and a strange honey touch; light wheat flavor too; some paint thinner; the final is weak and dry, with some sourness. It’s more like a sour Belgian Wit than a true Berliner Weisse...

Leighton (17210) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light, clear yellow-white with a thick, pure white head. Mild malt aroma with some cardboard and faint citrus. Flavor is lightly sweet with some sharp citric acid and some yeast. Light bodied with very high carbonation and tart/sour notes. Finishes crisp, sharp and dry with very little sweetness. I’m not a huge fan of this style but have found some that I enjoy; this beer really isn’t one of them, though it is drinkable.
