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

luttonm (3291) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Draft at Uber in Seattle. Almost clear, super pale yellow, white cream. Soft grainy aroma. Soft, a little lemony bite, cereal grain finish. Liquid cheerios. Nice, quenching, a bit of honey.

UXO (822) - CANADA - JUL 29, 2015
Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with one finger of rocky white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: muted, wheat, citrus, slightly funky. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, moderate sour. (8/10) Palate: light body, moderate carbonation, dry and emphatic sour finish. (4/5) A pretty authentic example of the style - low ABV, lightly wheat and fruity flavours on a moderately sour base. Tart and refreshing. (15/20)

650ml brown bottle. Pours out yellow with haze. Large white head. Nose has red berries, lemon, dusty wheat. Taste - lemon, tangy, wheat and grain. Light tart lemony finish. Good mouthfeel. Very solid.

patricks110 (2076) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2015
I really like this. A bit heavy and strong for the style. Pour is a bright golden copper with a thin spritz white head. The nose is a mildly sour with citrus and grassy notes. Nice and mildly sweet with sourness lingering for a while. Tart and fruity.

krumbum (706) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Lemon grain aromas. Murky gold no head. Thin light mostly flat lemon water poured over cornflakes. Weird.

reebtogi (4819) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2015
650ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that settles to reveal only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light lemon and grains. Taste is a bold lemon sourness with a fruity and malty sweetness and a dry finish. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, this is a sour beast, definitely not for the faint at heart.

Rollin down the street, smokin indo, sippin on 1945 and syrup. Laid back [with my mind on my money and my money on my mind]

On tap at Toronado Seattle. Light amber, bit of head. Clean lacto nose and character. Quite wheaty. Celery and light orchard fruit. Fairly tart, dry finish. Pretty good.

DuffMan (7999) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2015
On tap @ the Pine Box, Seattle. Hazy orange gold, low white head. Sweaty, unripened berry aroma and flavour, crisp and wheaty, lightly sour/tart. Very authentic. Quenching. Excellent.
