COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Märzen Berliner Weisse A sneak peak at the 3rd release in the Noble Star Collection. This is our take on a Märzen style Berliner Weisse. This beer was brewed with authentic strains of Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus and aged for nearly a year in one of our original, 1936 cypress wood lagering tanks.

mag_burk90 (14) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2014
A: toast with a slight nuttiness, plus the wood funk. A little subdued but nice. T: nice sourness and funk, perhaps a little rhubarb, a bit of toasted malt on the finish (tobacco perhaps?) M: good carbonation, dry finish O: really nice fusion of a Berliner Weiss and a marzen, with an American spin with the funk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nero55 (829) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle. Hazy brown with large off white head. Aroma of tartness, CO2 burn, some citrus notes, and a hint of malt. Light body, moderate to heavy tartness, some light malt notes, and a dry finish. The ’marzen" hybrid didn’t fully pay off in this weisse.

nuplastikk (4907) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2015
750ml bottle shared by Ryan. Unfiltered tan-brown body. Pronounced new school US sour tones. The aroma has some sour lemon which dominates the whole beer. Thin on the palate, most of the malt seems eaten up and thinned down. Cheesy lacto tones. Lacks real depth. OK, for a sour drink, but a boring end product.

davey101 (734) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottled March 2014. Pours a dark brown/red with fizzing carb. Nose is cherries, wheat, musky funk and vanilla. Taste is initially mouth puckering cherries and a sweaty musky funk. Wheat heavy with some oak and caramel. Less berliner and more oud bruin. Pretty unique stuff.

suprchunk (2507) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Supposed to be a Berliner, packaged as a Märzen. It is neither. Brown pour. Huge light tan head. Huge funky aroma with some copper notes. Taste is a carbonic bite mixed with a very tart sourness. No bready/yogurt notes as is commonly expected in BWs. I’ll pass on this one in the future.

From a bottle, pours light brown with fizzy head. Very light and fizzy mouthfeel. Sour, Brett evident. Liked very much.

deyholla (7588) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near clear light brown with a near white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains backed by light sour fruits and a hint of wheat. Flavor has nice light sour fruits with a touch of acid and earthy grains underlying.

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
Tasting at Ferris’, corked bottle
Light bodied, caramelly, sourish, lemony, a bit fruity and footy; sourdough character.
A bit purposeless.

badgerben (4562) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Brown color with a quickly falling, towering head. Some tart wheat aroma. A hint of mustoness. Light smokiness in the flavor. Musty, wheat, and old wood.somewhat grainy and an almost dry caramel character. Dry finish.

mcberko (8425) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
750mL bottle, pours a hazy dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of feet, earthy notes, and light graininess. Flavour is very strange, with notes of rye, dark crusty bread, and light spiciness. What a strange hybrid beast this is. Not like a Berliner at all, but a dark, earthy grainy wheat beer. Not too bad, but very strange.

Ferris (6783) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle - Funky grains, toast, rye and burnt notes with a weird tartness. Clear copper with a decent beige head. Tart and toasty malts with some weirdness. Odd all around but quite tart and interesting.
