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.

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.

On tap at Paragon. Aroma is bretty, lemony, wood, dusty basement. Pours hazy yellow with some off-white foam. Taste is highly sour (10/10), dry. A little thin and softly carbonated. Really nice.

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.

Bottle shared with koleminer20, and Gus for our mini-share extravaganza. Aroma is funky, tart, citrus, barnyard, wheat, yowza. Appearance is golden, mostly clear, white head. Taste is quite sour, I had a hard butthole pucker. Citrus, funk, wheat, barnyard, dusty, I like it a lot. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, tart wheat aftertaste. Overall, this is solidly the best Berliner I’ve had thus far.

Draft 8 oz pour at Stogies and Hops. Pours a clear golden color with a soft fizz head. Mild apple sour fruit aroma. Flavor is nicely tart with some apple and a big wheat background. Refreshing and tart at its finest. Delicious. Solid beer here.
