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

DuffMan (7845) - 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.

Tap at Tap and Bottle in Tucson. Little head and low carbonation but perfectly tart and overall an excellent representation of the style. Highly recommended.

skoisirius (1838) - Earth, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Tap at NW Cap N Taps Bonney Lake. Wafts of wheat and slight barnyard on the nose. Nice cloudy hazed golden pour. Flavors of orange citrus, notes of hay, a tiny barnyard hint, and some lemon. It’s all there for a Berliner, but it’s just a bit too clean for me - not used to my Berliner’s being so clean. Nice flavors on the finish though!

Bottle. Semi hazy gold/orange, with a white head. Tart sourness, wheat, lemon, and green apple. Refreshing, pretty good.

Barreras (1232) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Pours an opaque yellow color with a fruity aroma. Taste is bubbly and champagne like with a melon flavor. A very easy drinking beer with little to no bitterness and a quickly disappearing aftertaste. The tart taste is very evident at first and then disappears to a cool refreshing beer.

Bottle pour. Hazy golden with medium white head. Lemon, wheat, and light green apple aroma. Light body. Green apple, lemon, flavor that starts tart and finish sours. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ibrew2or3 (7423) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 21, 2014
22oz bomber pours with a nearly clear copper to gold body that supports a weak off white head. The mild aroma offers up wheat, lemon, lime tartness and then a mild sort of funky sort of sourness. The taste starts with a balanced mix of lemon and lime tartness and sort of wheat that is faintly malt sweetened. This is light and refreshing but could be less tart and more sour and funky for my taste.
