The German capital is famous for a beer called Berliner Weisse, a light and sour wheat beer, which is sweetened by a shot of raspberry or woodruff-flavored syrup. Back in the days, Napoleon’s troops called this popular drink “Champagne of the North”.
We have forgone the raspberry but instead added the subtle sweetness of local Prickly Pear, picked by our very own brewers. This tiny bubble brew is light, refreshing and highly carbonated. Just the right amount of fruit flavor shines through from the Organic Motueka hops. It won’t have too much sass, but it may be a Lil’ Tart.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 3/19/2013 on tap at the taproom. This Berliner Weisse pours a slightly hazy light gold color from the tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is wheat and citrusy, with a touch of tartness. A light to medium bodied Berliner Weisse. The malts are wheaty, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Nice balance. Smooth tasting. Its not as tart as one would expect from a Berliner Weisse, perhaps it has to do with the prickly pear? Still, its a slightly tart and refreshing beer that would make a nice summer session ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart.
