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.

DandyWolfFloyd (851) - 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!

Bottle. Very lightly colored. Almost like clear dishwater and suds like dishwater. Aroma is kind of lemony. Taste is like unsweetened green apples. But it’s still good.

jake65 (3125) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle: Clear light gold color, lots of bubbles and a short lived white head. The nose is fresh and sweet; it smells a bit like sparkling cider. The taste is surprisingly sour up front, a little bit of green apple, and a sour dry finish. There is some dainty fruit in there, but really quite sour. Good think it was 3% abv cause it went down quick.

05.12.2015, tap @ Smelteverket:
Tiny shortlasting head, very light color. Aroma is mild sour-ish, unripe berries, soda powder, minerals, citrus, hay, raw rhubarb, citrus acid. Taste is slightly sour-ish dry, soda powder, hay, sorrel, citrus acid, grass, unripe berries. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and watery mouthfeel. Nice enough, very clean and easy drinking.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Pours a cloudy, dark golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind. Slightly must aroma with a decent balance of musty funk, sweet citrus and bready yeast. Smells a bit tame for the style with faint lactic funk countered by citrus peel, lemon juice, zesty spice, pale malt and sourdough bread. Medium bodied and thankfully more interesting than the aroma suggests with a nice balance of funk and citric acidity. It’s still light and pretty tame for the style but you can at least pick up the wheat beer characteristics. Only slightly tart with more of a lactic presence than expected countered by sweet citrus, bready yeast and mild spicy. Faint peppery clove flavor countered by hints of lemon juice and sourdough bread. Not too exciting but well balance, clean, crisp and refreshing.

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.
