COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
1945 Berliner Weisse Berliner Weisse is a very pale, sour, refreshing, low-alcohol wheat ale, and regional specialty of Berlin. Berliner Weisse was referred to by Napoleon’s troops in 1809 as "the Champagne of the North" due to its lively and elegant character. Enjoy the tart, refreshing flavor by itself, or try a more traditional German approach by mixing with a shot raspberry, woodruff, or other flavored syrup.

The label says Sour Wheat ale and that it is. I've had sours before but this one will make you pucker. A fair review is difficult since I don't drink many of this type. If "really sour" is a good thing then this beer is an A. I'll always try any type of beer but this one I will respectfully leave on the shelf for someone else to enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mild lemon, olives. Taste is briny, olives, lemon peel, dry wood finish. Very pleasant (and for me a much needed break from the richer christmas beers I’ve been drinking).

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2016 Great acidity, great malt balance. Aroma was pleasant and not overwhelming. Mixed with some home made syrups I made as well and held up to my favorite German-made Berlinerweisses. Great example of the style!

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Bottle pours hazy yellow gold with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is relatively tame with notes of lemon grass, dusty wheat, and a strange sourness that I can’t quite put my finger on. Flavor shows lemon warheads, unripe green grapes, green apple skins, and cracker malt. The more I drink, the sour almost seems artificial (tartaric acid??) rather than a product of lacto. Overall body is light to moderate and the finish is dry.
