Our version of a Berliner Weisse, but fermented with ambient yeast and bacteria. Tart with citrus and fruit notes, a subtle grain character, and a hint of funk.

very slight cloudy yellow no head. Aroma wheat, sour, pears, grapes. Tastes sour, perfumy wheat, slight tomatoes. Ehh. a bit of wheat residue on palate. not fully quenching. There’s so many better berliners out there.

Pours from the bottle with a thin whispey, pale head. the beer is a pale golden hue. Smells lightly tart, lactic, cider overnotes, hints of grassy weeds maybe, and perhaps even a hint of grain character.

Nicely sour, a bit more so than I was expecting from a beer that was so light. Very light bodied, refreshing, and lightly carbonated. Lots of lactic acid is the most noticeable flavor here. Sour dried grass, a touch of lemon character, and a hint of cider character.

A nice, refershing example of a Berliner . I am definitely enjoying this, and really like how low in alcohol this is.

Bottle at RBWG. It pours a hazy yellow color. The aroma is herbal and lemony. The flavor is the same with a touch of funk. Wouldn’t have guessed this was at such a low ABV. Very drinkable. Good stuff.

Bomber pour to cup. Apple cider vinegar nose. Light and clear off yellow, medium bubble active carbonation. Apple cider, tart, sourdough, tastes similar to a very good kombucha. Leaves a sharp but pleasant sourness.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3990) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 20, 2015
De Garde Bu Weisse 2.1% This Champagne of the North is a very pale gold with a lovely tart aroma of lemons, hay & possibly apple cider. Light bodied with a highly effervescent carbonation. Exceptionally tart, lactic, acidic, lemon, melon, cidery/vinegar notes with a dry finish. Really nice refreshing stuff that packs in the flavor for just 2.1% Table beer anyone?

75cl bottle shared with the SHAPE crew. Thanks Mark. Couleur paille trouble opaque, rien en terme de mousse. Arôme au bouquet aigrelet sour-mash assez plaisant rendant un bouquet prenant de grains voire quasi farineux, le tout offrant une petite effluve fleurie. Palais est légèrement aigrelet avec un ajout fruité plaisant qui ressort bien sur le fleuri. Le tout garde une composition assez épaisse au niveau épaisseur de bouche avec une rondeur farineuse de grains, un petit côté aigrelet rappelant la framboise. Houblon semble fort léger et procure une amertume fine.

Bottle shared by mason. Pale cloudy yellow, white head. Lemony citrus sour aroma. Taste is more sour than I expected for the beer. Only 2%? I expected a grainy aftertaste but pretty much just lemon juice sourness.
