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.

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

What an interesting beer...pours a nice burnt sienna color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lost of nutty bread notes that mingle with a some well integrated roast, tart acidity and a lingering rustic grain. Hints of smoke, wet wood, caramel and apple skin. Great autumn berliner.

JBPortland (779) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to Lukaduke! Pours hazy brown with medium head. Nose is earthy bready grain and some tart fruit spice and toasted wood. Taste is multi grain bread, wheat cereal grains, tart round nutty fruit, nucely balanced acidity, soft woody notes. Finish is tart balanced acidity over earthy whole wheat bread and nutty toasted grains with some nice fruity spice. Unique and tasty.

Dogbrick (8139) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Sample from bottle at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Hazy brown color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of fruit, oak and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of vinous oak, caramel malt and earthy yeast. The finish is mildly tart with a fruity aftertaste. Decent overall.

maekchu (2134) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2014
Tap at Minnesota State Fair, Land of 10,000 Beers section. Light sour fruit notes wafting up, floral, spice, Brett. Medium copper/brown color. Light vinegary fruit, some funk, gentle finish. Thin body and lightly astringent. Nice stuff. Doesn’t really push the boundaries, but well made.

crossovert (7388) - Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2014
750ml corked and caged champagne style bottle. Served in a Merry’s Irish cream mini "bowl". Interesting hybrid style. Has a deep ressish amber pour. Just a nose-tingling aroma that shoots form the bottle. Huge lacto, raspberry, woody cyprus, caramel, and raisins. Flavor has popsicle, lots of brett, woodsy medicinal, slightly oxidized, again like freezer burned popsicle (ambiguous fruit). Definitely and interesting brew.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Great Taste of the Midwest 2014 Offering (Madison, WI). Pours a nice glowing amber pour, healthy glow anf frothy offwhite head atop. Nice stick around and lacing. A firmer lactic nose is sour and lemony, decent yogurt and touch of carmelized and toast elements. Initial is lighter end of the fold with touches of toast, firmer sour zing. Lemony, yogurty. Backend is potent sour, a bit toasty, some gentle pit fruit and cherry. Firm sourness, bubbly and effervescent. Nice stuff.

JohnnyJ (4358) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle. Light brown pour, with an off white head. Plenty of tartness, oak, mild caramel malt, notes of green apple and cherry, citrus peel, and some mineral character. Odd concept, but it turned out fine.

Ratman197 (9806) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Corked and caged bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, coffee, tart citrus, earthiness and cocoa. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of caramel, earthiness, sour citrus and coffee with a crisp dry tart lingering earthy citrus finish.
