Napoleon hailed this tart beer style "the Champagne of the North." A lively and elegant masterpiece this Berliner Weiss is a kaleidoscope of fresh flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2013 [Thumbprint / bottle] bright, sunshine yellow & straw color with a mild haze to it; topped off with a foamy, soapy, bone-white head that retains well & leaves some nice, dripping lace behind. Aroma is musty oak, grains, white grape, straw, green apple skins, & a nice amount of tartness. Taste is perfectly crisp & smooth... White grape & green apple skins, very lightly acidic with a pleasing sourness. Lighter hints of grain, oak, must, lemon, cotton, & a finishing dryness. Nice carbonation snap, thin body, dry finish. To date, one of the best Berliners I’ve had, & it absolutely can’t be beat for the price. Thanks to Jeff for introducing me to this gem.

[Unplugged / bottle] thanks, Jeff! The Unplugged version, over three years old at this point, was a little creamier & smoother on the palate with not as much sharp carbonation. Big tart & even sweet granny smith apple flavors. Vinous oak & grape notes still present & still pleasantly tart. Possibly a little more sour overall, I still think I prefer the Thumbprint, but this version was very nice as well.

Extra in a trade... Awesome! Pours a brilliant yellow blonde with a big white head and leaves lacing. Smell is saltine crackers, lemon, tart. Taste is just the right amount of tart, lemon, a bit of apple, and a nice grainy cracker backbone. Dry finish and good carbonation. Berliners are quickly becoming one of my favorite styles.

Big thanks to artmcd8 for this tremendous brew! Had this at the RB Pgh Halloween Spook-tacular Tasting/Drunkfest fall 2013, nice time at Hornydevil’s place, thanks James & Michelle! Slight mild tart and sweet perfumy aroma. Wew, this stuff is GOOD! Mild and easy, right up my alley. So easy to drink and so refined, lovely. Refined and frindly. Very nice finish. This beer ROCKS!

I like this beer quite a bit. It's very subtle and complex with very light flavors. Slightly earthy with some nice wheat notes and some very minimal funk. Has a tart lemony flavor that is soft and doesn't overshadow the rest of the beer. All in all, very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerman6686 (4475) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2013
This one poured a very very light yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of lemon Peel, cob webs, and light grain. Flavor was spritzy lemiade almost, with mild grain and funk. Solid but nothing mind blowing.

Gold pour with a spritzy white head. Aroma lifts all over the damn place. Lemon, funk, bit o lacto offered. Delicate, yet extremely aromatic brew. Flavor lifts all over the damn place with a medium sour, and a touch of salt. Lively brew, prickly carbonation. Finish is quick, thirst quenching, extremely light and clean. This is the kind of beer I could drink a four pack of in an hour without much thought.

Light yellow pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor have a lot of tart wheat notes as well as a hint of lemon. There is also a bit of spice. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice, delicate sour. Glad I got to try it.

This beer is the definition of CHARMING. Pours a pale yellow with huge fizzy white head that lasts longer then I would think from a 3% beer. Great lemony tartness and crisp wheat. You need to really chug this one to get its true greatness. I wish I had more.
