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

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....

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.

islay (1407) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 27, 2015
22 oz. bottle. Clear pale gold but murkily cloudy in the final pour. Moderate to high effervescence rescues the appearance from being subpar. Small amount of nearly white head. Funky, tart aroma. Apple, unbaked pie dough scents. Not the most pleasant smell if I’m being honest. Sour taste features crabapple flavor. Funky, tree bark, pretzel finish. Off-putting, funky, rotten cheese aftertaste. Not a lot to the flavor. Aqueous in the palate. Frothy. Overall, boring.

Bottle - Pours pale golden with a ring of white head. Nose is sweet wheat, peanut butter (!), apple juice. Taste is lightly tart, apple, white grape, and a little sticky sweetness. Fluffy with a thin body.

weihenweizen (2080) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Refrigerated brown bottle, abv on bottle 5.5%, poured into a glass. Pours deep golden with small off-white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is tart and bready, medium body, lower carbonation, and little small-bubble lacing. Taste is tart and bread. Not as light and refreshing as other Berliners, but not bad.
