COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Napoleon’s troops referred to Berliner Weisse as the "Champagne of the North" due to its lively and elegant character. Today this style is described by some as the most refreshing beer in the world. Our approach was to brew this beer with Lactobacilius for a refreshing and authentic interpretation of a classic summer refresher.

Can pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is sour and a bit of wet hay, not much going on. Flavor is light wheat, then tart lemony notes then more wheat, simple easy drinking brew, refreshing. Overall not too bad.

Nice Berliner. Downed a few of these on our trip out east. Lively carbonation, hazy yellow. Sour nose and flavour but soon refreshing! Great simple beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Twelve ounce can. Less sour than many of the style, but a valid interperation. Cloudy dark straw color.

bennetporter (313) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Pours a clear amber from a bottle, effervescence quickly fades. Smell of apple, flavor of green apple and biscuit, some brett funk, but not terribly funky or sour. Nice and refreshing. Good beer.

rumproasts (4008) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2015
bottle. Golden with small head. Wheaty with tart lemony notes, but the body is not as light as I’d like for the style. Almost feels thick. I haven’t had many of this style I didn’t love, but this is a letdown.

I believe this was their first batch bottle (2010), aged some 6 months (in fridge)
Bright hay-gold beer has a small white head that dissipates quickly atop a lightly hazy body.
Very straightforward lactic acid in the nose is of moderate strength, with some various notes of seltzer water, hard water minerals and very light, grainy malts. Little to no sweetness, though there’s a bit of lemon-infused honey. Overall, quite a faint aroma...
Bubbly carbonation disperses lactic acid all over the palate, with some light lemon and wheat notes to clean it up. A bit of a stale/tired feel to it, with light notes of diacetyl and vanilla. Not really much going on and has held up very poorly for a 6.4% wheat ale brewed with critters and aged in a very cold fridge. This also begs the question, why is this a 6.4% abv Berliner Weisse? My first beer from this brewery, a big letdown, which was to be a very recurring theme....

djd07 (5889) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle as shown. Pours a pale yellow with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is sour fruit, funk, and wheat. Thin mouth, tart fruit, strong lacto, crushable, good.

Old rating. This berliner was off to me. Dark gold pour. Strange aroma…bready, almost nutty. Not what I expected in BW. Tasted better lemon, tart, funk, grassy, wheaty. Okay, I guess.
