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.

Whoa, super good! These guys are spot on in their interpretation of this style of beer. Poured with a fizzy, white, fine bubble head and no lace. Color is a very light and clear pale yellow. Aroma is lightly fruity, tart, grassy, grain & cereal, and marshmallows. Taste has tartness coming out more (although not overly done) along with cereal, and a bit of fruit. Body is great and very crisply carbonated. Ultra clean finish. Perfect summer beer. With a BIT of fruit syrup - wow, what a delight!

I don’t have any experience with Berliner Weisse beers. This tastes superb to me. Very light. Slight tartness is very appealing. Sour heads check it out. To sum it up quickly I would say it’s a wheaty tart lemonade. Refreshing and delicious. Champagne like.

Bottle. This stuff is damn tasty. Aroma lightly fruity (apple, pear), sourness in the area of cider, some champagne as it rushes toward the mouth. Flavor is unbelievable, especially for 3%, tart, citric, wine, mild fruity earthiness, more apple-pear fruit, some lemon, grape. And wow is it delightful in the mouth, resting like a feather, tickling the tongue as though mildly perturbed by a breeze. If only it cost a touch less, I would no longer have need for water.

translucent pale gold with a dense white head. medium body with high carbonation.

aroma: sour and funky, slightly fruity, and a cereal grain combination of sweet pale malt and tart wheat.

taste: tart acidity with a bitter note (like lemon peel), and sweet cereal-like wheat and malted barley.

i think this has more pediococcus/lactobacillus (yoghurt sour) and less brettanomyces (sweaty horse) than the FB1809.

Bottle as shown thanks to Rainer. Pours a cloudy pink beige with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong lacto, oak, horse blanket. Thin mouthfeel and warhead like sourness with strong tart finish. SO sour, really enjoyed this one.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2011 Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a thin white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has tart fruits and a definite pear note with a bit of a sweet note as well. Flavor begins quite tart with a tart apple note but a lighter and sweeter pear note comes out in the finish. I really enjoyed this beer!

Bayerischer Bahnhof’s 3%abv Berliner Weisse style beer, enjoyed straight (without syrup) had a delicious, quenching sourness, but significantly more subdued than, say, an intense Belgian Gueuze or even some other Berlin-made Berliner Weisse beers. It had a nice graininess and slightly earthy quality as well as a faint honey-like sweetness rounding out the delightful lactic acidity. Somebody’s got to get this beer on tap in NYC this summer!

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2013 I have built up anticipation for this beer and been keeping an eye on the ratings since day one. I was afraid since it was scoring rather low but I am going against the grain here. Pours with a small head and an extremely pale body. However, the lack of filtration is visible with a misty cloud that settles in the middle of the glass. Still, some clarity prevails. A ring of sediment is left in the bottle. Aroma is at first not impressive with light lagered fruitiness and macro-corn. But with patience arises lemon and some faint sweet wheat. The macro-corn actually works kind of nice here. Taste is pretty tart actually; I feel it right away along with an accompanying acidity on the cheeks. There is lemon and sweet white bread. Aftertaste is long and sour, not lambic but persistently prickley. Really refreshing and thirst quenching and such a light bodied beer that I feel I could drink this all the time, my daily sour beer. 11.2oz bottle (labeled 3.0%), Seagrams Scotch glass (closest thing to a Bowl). 7/3/8/4/16.

Wow, I cannot believe it has been 5 years since I rated this beer. i just had this on tap and it was spectacular. I have to imagine the beer has changed a bit and the draught is a little different from bottle. But this was a very tart Berliner. Tingled the cheeks and tonsils. Super light beer with a strong carbonation and a light body. Almost exactly what I want my Berliner to be. 9/3/9/4/18

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 My Bottom Line:
A soft but expansive effervescence carries delicate lemons, apple must fruitiness and crisp cereals into a mineral finish where light tartness rises amongst the prevalent sensations of dryness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam stays atop the cloudy pale yellow.
-The body is dry and highly effervescent. This is perfect for the patio in summer.
-Phenols, sometimes plastic-y, move about behind the fruitiness.
-The tartness barely surfaces and evaporates well before the finish is reached.
-The flavor profile is elegant but perhaps too timid for those looking for something sour and lingering.

Bottles.

Bottle - Beautiful slightly hazy pale golden body, very little sparkle, huuuge lasting white head; Very fine super, super elegant nose, superb balance between light sweetness and light acid; The body is very fine as well, thin elegant texture and a very fine bubbled carbonation, superb balance with a fine acid touch; It evolves fine into a long finish with a very little unfitting grain aroma, otherwise it has the same elegance and finish as the rest of the beer. Super beautiful, super fine and truly amazing!
