Bottle bought at Ambrosetti in Berlin. Based on the score and multiple ’you can no longer get good Berliner Weisse in Berlin’ statements I thought this was going to be crap. Pour is hazy, thick straw yellow with a wispy foam on top. Nose is a little doughy with some definite lively tartness in back. Palate actually has a fair amount of body and is alive with astringency. Flavor is quite solid with some doughy maltiness up front followed by intense, lasting sourness. This is actually damn good. I’m no sour or Berliner Weisse aficionado but I think this has the style fairly well down, is intensely sour, and is excellent value (I think it was1.5 Euro). This will be a staple for me in Berlin. Who says you can’t get decent Berliner Weisse in Berlin?

Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur jaune très très clair, peu de mousse, effervescence très importante, une bière avec une attaque sur le sel et accompagnée d’une pointe d’amertume sur l’endive....

Renobob (637) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 12, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Goût plutôt désagréable, salé et très acide. Couleur jaune pale, peu de CO2. Finale sèche. Plutôt mauvais.

Hazy light yellow colour with a white head. Citric and sour aroma. I do understand why the germans put some sweet syrup in this beer. A bit sour with some wheat and citrus. Light body and rich carbonation.

Foffern (1225) - Bodø, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle at restaurant, Berlin. Has a hazy straw colour and a small, off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pale malt and some clorine. Sour flavour of some apples, lime and hay. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A sour and fresh beer, nothing more.

Tried it with and without strawberry syrup. Pale yellow, champagne carbonation. Except for the sourness, there is nothing very interesting. I liked it more with syrup...

Flaske i gave fra søs. Kjøpt i Berlin. Drukket ren. Litt uklar, lys gylden, gulaktig. Tynn hvit skumrand. Lite karbonert. Frisk. Smaker sitrus og gress. Litt hveteaktig med en annen fruktighet og ikke minst surhet. Min aller første berlinerweisse. Blir ikke den siste
