COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Nate (4171) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2012
From bottle. Sour funky nose, lactic with horse blanket. Fruity, wheaty, tart. Light hint of oxidation. Light straw with some haze, topped with soda-like white head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts tart and lactic with wheat. Mild bitter quality but overall very tart and crisp. Not much oak, like a lambic, but a nice tart lactic profile. Tasty, with clean after.

La bière de blé suri bien faite, agréable à boire avec ses flaveurs de citron, de yaourt, de blé. Facile à boire cette limonade. Ce n’est pas mon style préféré mais je pense que cette version proposée est capable de plaire à tous et à toutes. Allez, je termine ce petit texte comme je termine ce grand verre devant moi: avec rapidité et avec un détachement certain.

Bottle. Hazy golden with two finger head. Lightly tart with less lemon then other Berliners I’ve had. Solid wheat body with some fruity sweetness. Very nice balance.

cfrancis (3099) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2016
Pours clear yellow with a small white wisp. Aroma is tart sweetness and fruit. Taste is a smart tartness that hits quick and then fades. It leaves a nice fruity sweetness and dry palate. Great beer.

The_Osprey (5950) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Bottle share at Leighton’s, many thanks to Kenny for this one. As ’Bruery Terreux Hottenroth Berliner Weisse’, 3.1%. Opaque hazy pale yellow, no head. Aroma is eggy, pungent, solvent, some white chocolate, stink bomb. Body is light, soft carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is thin, bready, more of that sulphur, white chocolate, thin citrus. I’m struggling to think of things I like about this.

Bottle, 65cl. Opaque pale golden with a minimal head. Sour tart aromas. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Medium to low sweet, heavily sour. Deep fruity and tart character into a citrus sour finish. Very pleasant.

TXBadger (2496) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle dated 2015. Pours a very light hazy yellow color with fizzy white head. Light citrus notes and some tartness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes tart and dry. Very nicely done berliner.

Bottleshare at Mr Smith’s pad. Hazy gold beer, a very short lived white head. Some egg on the nose. Palate is light, dry and has decent fine carbonation. Light tangy citrus, orange and lemon. A bitter and wonky funk underneath. Light semi dry finish. Pretty lame all round.
