COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Napoleon hailed this tart beer style "the Champagne of the North." A lively and elegant masterpiece this Berliner Weisse is a kaleidoscope of fresh flavor. Barrel fermentation, Riesling grapes and Wisconsin White Wheat are bottle fermented with five proprietary yeast strains. A connoisseur’s rare jewel both spirited and subtle, enjoy your sparkling toast under summer stars.

Pours pale straw color with a billowing white head that recedes slowly. Aroma is yeasty, tart and spicy...enticing! Flavor is slightly mellower than what I remember from the ’unplugged’ version of this beer, but still the sour/tart wheat beauty that I remember. Incredibly easy (actually, too easy) to drink...medium to high level of effervescence but incredibly smooth on the palate. Yum! Plan to do a side-by-side with the unplugged soon as I have about 4 of those left...can’t wait!

Bottle. Pours real hazy straw yellow with white head. Aroma has a pleasant white grape, some oak, touch yogurty lactic thing. Flavors have a balance of tart and sweet, white grapes and lemon, lactic. Mouth feel is highly carbonated, big spritzy champagne feel. Refreshing.

TheEpeeist (3667) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2013
12 oz bottle. Clear pale gold with a delicate white head. Nose is chardonnay, lemon and vanilla custard. Crisp and creamy with a sour bite and prickly carb. Taste is between lemon and lime perfectly sour and slightly sweet. Hints of white grape with a dry oaky finish. Beautiful stuff, no fruit required.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a pale yellow color with a nice large white head. The aroma is tart with lemon and lactic sour notes. The flavor is light and refreshing with a twinge of sourness. Lots of lemony, yogurt and wheat. Finishes tart. Nice, spritzy mouthfeel. Great beer.

joeneugs (4872) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 29, 2013
12 oz. bottle from jlruthven. Thanks Josh! It pours a very pale yellow color with a large white head that shrinks quickly. The aroma is very pleasantly tart with lots of lactic lemony yogurt and wheat. The flavor is light and refreshing with a perfect amount of tartness… very lemony, yogurt and wheat in the aftertaste. Huge lactobacillus presence without a whole lot else. Effervescent mouthfeel. Wow. Probably one of the best examples of the style I’ve had.

BlowOffTube (501) - Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Thank you beerbaron! Champaign of the north for sure. Pours a transparent yellow with a medium bright white head. Not much aroma, light tart lemon and apples. Taste is tart apple, grape, and straw. Bubbly and very light body. Refreshing.

Drake (11432) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2013
12 ounce bottle courtesy of GhostFace. Thanks! Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized foamy off-white head. Good head retention and solid lacing. Aroma of pale malts, earthy notes and a light tartness. The taste is bright citrus, wheat,apples and a mildly lactic but strong tartness. Medium bodied, decent balance, refreshing. Nice beer.

Bottle thanks to Rick. Pours a clear yellow gold with paperthin white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is sour fruit and wheat. Thin mouthfeel with light tartness and sour fruit. Easy to drink. Very good.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2015 Very subtile, very plain. Slight sour but not strong at all. Almost like the made a watered down sour. 3.1

Just noticed I gave this 3.1 a couple years ago. Did the beer change, or my tastes change? Maybe I didn’t get what it was back then. Tart, crisp, refreshing. Bought a 4 pack last week at the brewery. Wishing I had a lot more.

DalzAle (2017) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle thanks to weinando! Effervescent clear yellow pour, frothy white head and an aroma of light lemon. Flavor is lightly tart lemon, bit of dry sugar sweetness on the aftertaste.
