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

JohnnyJ (4267) - 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 (9538) - 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.

Pours hazy brown with a thin white head. Aroma of vinegar, lacto, oak, malt and funk. Taste is vinegar, malt, oak and funk. Different, nice malty presence. Just not what I want in a Berliner.

Very tart! Plenty of lactic but also bite from vinegar. Some funk in the background. Some roast malt shows through. Light caramel undertones. More interesting than a usual Berliner. Nice sipper.

I really love this series from August Schell. Good funk with the back bone of a brown ale.

CanIHave4Beers (3190) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Pours a deep orangeish brown with a a small but well retained head.

The aroma is minerally with some funk and popcorn husk. The tart fruit, yogurt and lemon rind all have a nice showing across the bouquet.

The flavor is tart and cherry like to some degree. There is a mild malty richness to the beer but it’s dry. Lemony and lightly sour, but overall enjoyable.

What a strange concept for a beer, turned out well as far as I’m concerned though.

ben4321 (3812) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Location: Sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14

Aroma: I found the nose pretty mild, some yeasty notes, a little fruit, and mild funk
Appearance: This one pours a reddish-brown color with a decent sized fizzy head to it
Flavor: The flavor is pretty much the same, decent but a little thin, pretty much the same
Palate: The body is medium, thought a little thin, some fizzy, and an okay mouthfeel
Overall Impression: I thought this was an alright one. There isn’t a ton going on here. It certainly didn’t standout when compared with the rest of the offerings at this festival.

beernbourbon (1288) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle thanks to Seth, thanks man! Pour is hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma is tart with notes of glue, light rose petal, and subtle caramel malt. Flavor is bi - layered with a tart cherry layer underlying a light malty superficial layer. Very refreshing and tasty. Nice beer.

jtclockwork (8024) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle at WWBA. Pours brown with white head. Nose/taste of a typical marzen but with lots of wood and a mild funk. Some soured chocolate. Medium body.

Atom (1301) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle pours a dark brown with large head. Aroma of yeast with earthy tones and caramel, buttery. Taste has a sharp but pleasant acidity, apple skins. More like a tart Flanders red than a Berliner, but enjoyable.
