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.

A tasty and mild take on this style. It’s cloudy witbier yellow w/ a foamy white head. It’s nose has a bit of vinous funk to it in the nose w/ a bit of a fresh, husky grain character. This is light bodied but not at all watery w/ vigorous carbonation. Light tartness seems to bring out the fruity character from the nose while an almost lambic-like phenolic complexity lurks quietly in the background. This style and esp. examples that include some sort of fruit tend to be ham-fisted in one way or the other, either they are straight fruit juice or overly sour and harsh. This avoids those pitfalls and that makes for a very nice beer indeed.

Clear yellow pour with a big single finger head. Aroma of grain and a light sourness. Some grain in the taste, very light and refreshing. Slightly tart. Very nice example of a Berliner Weisse. No lace present. Medium mouth.

Bottle from Santa. Hazy golden pour with a big, rocky, frothy bone white head. Aroma was light lemon, white wine, yeast. Flavors were slightly tart, fresh lemon, cereal malts, simple yet elegant. Lively, champaign like carbonation. Nailed it, good stuff.

Bottle. Man, this is a great example of the style. Light, crisp, slightly tart, and very refreshing. I dig it.

Lighter and less tart than the unplugged release w Pinot grapes. The Riesling grapes were light too - not really imparting any sweetness, just a very subtle aroma and flavor. Just as refreshing, if not quite as complex.

Carlisle (322) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle. Gold color with thick white head and substantial lacing; champagne-like effervescence. Tart fruit candy and yeast aroma with wheat notes. Tart fruit, grape and some cherry, upfront with some bitterness in the finish. Watery mouthfeel especially in the finish. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy Straw on white foam. Really nice crunchy wheat juiciness in the mouth. Fades into tart sensations. This is unreal crushable, and just what I’d hope for in a NG version of a berliner. Add some Fruit to this thing!

Decent Berliner. Bright yellow. Wheaty nose. Body was light and just slightly tart. Mild citrus taste, yeast, slightly vinous. Just fine.

Taste is of lemons, grainy, green apple and white grapes .... Mouthfeel is tart and sweet .... Has a dry, lingering grainy and tart finish .... Light and refreshing

Bottle pour light yellow with abundant carbonation and white head. Nose tart, white wine grapes, crystal malt, and slight yeast. Taste green apple, white wine, tart up front. Lots of carbonation mid palate. Strong grainy malt mid to late. Back to green apple in the finish.
