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

Dogbrick (10889) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2016
Sample at Brave Horse Tavern. Hazy pale yellow color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of lemons, wheat and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of tart citrus, herbal wheat and pale malts. The finish is mildly tart with a lemony aftertaste. Decent overall.

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).
