Hottenroth Berliner Weisse is brewed in memory of Fred & Sarah Hottenroth, our founder, Patrick Rue’s grandparents. This tart, German-style Berliner Weisse is as authentic as it gets. We use lactobacillus and a hint of brettanomyces to sour this very unusual, low gravity wheat beer. To cut the tartness for those with sweeter tastes, raspberry or woodruff syrup is a traditional way to sweeten the beer. Almost an extinct style, we hope to help revive the Berliner Weisse in memory of two great people.

750ml at 99 Bottles, Santa Cruz. Strikingly clear gold, made more amazing by dint of its unfiltered, bottle-conditioned nature, with tall receding white froth. Sweet, gentle wheat malt suffuses with grippier grapefruit juice aromas. Lemon juice is the dominant flavor, while subtler paste and cedar notes get almost washed away. Quite tart and refreshing, verging on watery.

Hugi (475) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2015
Thanks to oldmanriver for sharing this beer with me. Light orange, ´hazy, small head. A light sour aroma, fruity, raspberries and green apple --> very refreshing. Strong sour taste, but very clean and dry. Dry and full finish with some hop nuances.

Pyobon (1251) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2015
(Bottle) Pale yellow with slight head which disappeared very fast. First glass from bottle was hazy, third was cloudy, but most yeast remained in bottle). Slightly funky, slightly tart aroma. Light bodied with plentiful coarse carbonation. Sour, but in a good way, sort of reminiscent of a dry scrumpy (without the apples!). Some peppery spice, some farmyard, but mostly sour. Sour, interesting - glass I had rich and salty food as an accompaniment.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong citrus, brett, and dough. Thin mouthfeel, very tart lemon, brett, light dry finish, crushable, very nice.

John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2015
Bottle. Bright yellow with a huge fluffy white head. Lemon, sweet tarts, light grassy notes, Apple juice. Medium body and lower carb than I expected. Just the right amount of mild sweet and sour characteristics to add flavor but, keep this one easy to drink, light, and juicy. Everything in here works really well together. --- rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of hay, cider, and granny smith apples. Appears hazy yellow. Tastes of unsweetend applesauce and hay. Overall, a very approachable and mild Berlinerweiß, very nice.
