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 from the brewery store. Aroma is pure cow pie with a little lemon. I have never experienced anything like it in a beer before this. In saying this, I was not totally turned off. Flavor was pleasantly sour with notes of lemon as well.

jbruner (3705) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Pours a cloudy yellow from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates quickly but keeps bubbling. Aroma of mild lactic funk and slight lemony citrus. Taste is bigger than the nose, nice lactic citrus notes with a balanced finish. Good carbonation, soft and effervescent. Really easy drinker.

mathieuc (2949) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2015
Pours a hazy golden with a white rim that doesn’t leave any lacing. Nose is of sour wheat and that’s about it. Taste is moderately tart and dry, lemony. Light to mediun body, medium carbonation. Refreshing and fun but I must echo what Minderbinder underlined: Simple. Not much funk and mostly lactic.

Draft. Clear golden appearance with a small white head. Lemony aroma, cereal grains. The flavor is light and tart. A touch of sweet malt, yielding to lemony bretty/lactic notes. Fairly light, crisply tart, average carbonation. Not really a Berliner Weiss, but good.
