COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imagine yourself in Berlin’s Tiergarten enjoying this refreshing Berliner Weisse inspired beer on a warm summer’s day. Bretta Weisse honors the traditional beverage of the great Prussian capital, Berlin. Fredrick-the-Great was trained to brew it, and Napoleon’s troops called it “The champagne of the North”. Firm estery notes of stone and tropical fruit lead to Funky, yeasty, citrus aromas. Soft cereal and Oak flavors are enveloped by a firm acidity and tartness. The finish is dry and crisp; a thoroughly enjoyable beverage. At 4.5% ABV, one could imagine enjoying several Bretta Weisse’s in the Tiergarten, or anywhere else. This Berliner Weisse inspired Wheat beer was aged in 1700 gal French Oak horizontal foeders for 8 months.

Bottle. Sweaty, stinky nose, burnt rubber, prickly light pepper. Thin hazy straw color. Sour initial (duh...), lemon, and some other citrus notes. Thin body, medium-strength astringency. Intriguing complex nose, indeed. Flavors are good but a bit one way all the way.

phaleslu (8969) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Draft at Mikkeller Bar San Francisco, served in a tulip or stemmed glass of some kind. Probably cost $50, I can’t remember. Pours a hazy gold with a small off-white head that settles into an uneven ring. Has a bit of lactic and bretty funk throughout, with lemon, dough, vanilla, toasted sugar, apricot, lime, pineapple, cobwebs, nectarine, and cereal. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sour, surprisingly sharp mouthfeel. Really nice, interesting Berliner. Good complexity.
