COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
magine 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 4.9% 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.

Perfect berliner weisse. Had this in a bottle finally, before i’d tried it at barrell works at the brewery over a year ago. Nose is subtle citrus, funk. Taste is very bright, with lots of citrus, hints of pinapple, extremely balanced. finishes really smoothe. Love it.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Glowing hazy straw, bone white head, good lace. Nose is subtle funk, hay, orange zest, lemon. Flavor is same plus oak, faint tart yogurt. Lean, focused and achieves a complexity that goes above and beyond a Berliner without compromising adherence to style guidelines. Perfect example of the style.

loved this 4.9 beer that had all the flavor of beers double that. nuanced peachy lemony aroma and flavor with some wheat in there as well. Smooth and refreshing, yet very flavorful and complex. Just what I hoped it would be.

Poured into a Firestone Walker tulip at Rose & Crown pub in Palo Alto. Pours a hazy bright golden orange with a huge white head. Looks gorgeous in the sunlight. Nose has some acidity, lemons, maybe apricots, light funk, floral. The taste is insanely clean with medium carbonation and full mouth feel for being only 3.4%. Taste of light hay, lemons, earthy brett, wheat and maybe oats. Overall extremely drinkable and refreshing. I had to order two! Awesome job by Firestone, which in my opinion can do no wrong. Incredible berliner style with brett that apparently can take as little as three weeks to make.

Bottle thanks to Santa! Pours a hazy gold with visible carbonation and a bubbly white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a tart lemon with some earthy wheat and a touch yogurt. Flavor has a nice tart lemon throughout with a light funkiness and a wheat backbone.
