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 Napoleonís 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.

Anticipated this 22oz bomber so shared with kmweaver (local bottle shop who rarely steers me wrong gave high marks). Highly acedic sourness dominated this cloudy pour. Tart aroma and nose, with some hoisin sauce. That said, itís still one dimensional, not subtle. Mouthfeel was slightly oily, with perception of low carbonation. Call it a sour, but not what I expect in something labeled Berliner Weiss style.

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.

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 (1823) - 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. Itís all there for a Berliner, but itís just a bit too clean for me - not used to my Berlinerís 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 (1175) - 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 (7362) - 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.
