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.

CBC. Cloudy golden with a lasting white head. Brett dominated aroma with fruity and bready notes. Dry and tart flavour with brett and a hint of yeast. Brett is probably my favourite flavouring to berliner weisse...

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.
