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.

Having no familiarity with the brewer I'm reluctant to say that this beer is the result of intentional disrespect for the consumer. It is in any event nothing approximating a Berliner weisse, as evidenced most prominently by the crystal malt sweetness and high original gravity (traditionally Berliner weisse is less than 4% abv). This isn't an especially good brew by any measure but calling it a Berliner Weisse is either to assume the person drinking it a fool or to misunderstand the style entirely. Either way, disappointment is all but assured. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I really enjoyed this Berliner. Nice and sour with a great head and puckering aroma. Fantastic.

Super tart, lemony, apple thing going on. Not bad but not what I typically look for in a BW. A little overpowered by the lactobacillus tbh, kills underlying flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This poured a flay yellow with basically no head. Aroma was of old stale apple juice. Flavor similar, not really tart at all, just weird and bad.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head. Aromas of rotten apples and maybe a tad vinegar. Really would think this is apple cider gone bad. Not good. #4/4 in blind BW tasting. 1. Hitchhiker 2. New Glarus 3. Farmhouse 4. White Birtch

12 oz can. Dirty yellow pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of barnyard, socks and yeast. Even light body with a nice sour finish. Very refreshing summer brew.

can pour..not a very good take on a berliner weisse in my book..not really refreshing with any real good solid sourness behind it at all..glad to try but after this one, you can appreciate that the euros know what they are doing with this style, not this brewery...

Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, coriander, white pepper, and tart lactic acid. Flavor is sour lactic acid, citrus, and coriander. Good stuff.
