Huguenots may have originated the style as they traveled through France to Flanders, having first mentioned it in the 1600s. During their time, there were said to be seven hundred weissbier breweries in Berlin. Later, in 1809, Napoleon and his troops identified Berliner Weisse as the Champagne of the North. He requested the beer be served w/syrup to cut its extreme level of acidity. Bayrischer Bahnhof’s interpretation is a slightly softer, more mellow version of the “Berliner Weisse” style with a beautiful balance of tartness, fruitness, and sweetness.

Immy (1958) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 9, 2008
11.2 oz bottle. Clear straw with some floaties. White head fizzed up like pouring a Sprite, then was gone.Somewhat sweet nose, light, sweet lemon and granny smith apple.Light cereal flavors, lemony with a touch of green apple flavors. Mildly tart. Light, smooth and clean, it’s gone from the palate in a minute, leaving just a mild dryness. Not bad.

Bottle courtesy tpd975. Pours a hazy pale golden with a large white head that fades leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus, wheat, light acidity, and yeast. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium creamy mouthfeel with a slightly tart crisp finish. Very good.

thornecb (6060) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Pours pale yellow into a trappist glass. Bright white head quickly recedes to hug rim. Sharp yeast from front to back but rather light and watery.

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2008
11.2oz bottle. Poured a medium and hazy/cloudy yellow color with a larger sized white head. Aromas of yeast, bready, dried out lemon peels, and wet/musty wheat (almost like a pile of horse manure). Tastes of wheat and lemons. Verly light tart finished. Description was spot on with ’...more mellow version of teh Berliner Weisse style...;.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Bottle: Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma, light yeasty notes, lemon zest, bready notes, tart. Flavor, lemons, tart, almost cider like in some ways, yeasty, doughy notes, finishes dry with a light tartness. Pretty good.

Draft at gaslight. This light gold beer with a thin white head is terrible without the getrankesirup that was added by the bartender after telling me about adding this raspberry syrup to the beer it became tolerable but obviously sweet raspberry as one would imagine. The soultion is more like a 3.2 the base beer is more like...

DMRz (230) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Clear yellow color with short lived white head. Aromas of sourdough and lemon. Flavors of bready yeast, lemon, and a pleasant sour finish. A respectable beer.

RCL (2032) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2011 Aroma is one of tart yellow fruits. Nice, light lemony flavor, but it does have a wee bit of complexity, pie crust dough and lemon pith. Light on the palate, with a nice, refreshing tartness. Quite drinkable.

My first Berliner Weisse; bottle at the Stone World Bistro. Not as bracingly sour as I was led to believe, probably just this example. Pours with a largish, rocky, white head that goes in a relativly short amount of time. Clear yellow untill you get the yeast at the end of the bottle. Aroma is sour and tart with a bit of honey. Taste is sour with hay and a bit of wierd honey notes in the finish. Water like mouthfeel with a large amount of carbonation.

17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Pours like a sparkling white wine, clear straw colored with huge carbonation bubbles and a sparkling head. A bright sour bready aroma, tart with honey and lemons as well. Sweet and sour flavor. Yeasty and bready also, but mostly very tart and tangy. A little bit of honey and good amount of lemon. Lots of wheat in the finish, grassy. Its very straight forward which makes it somewhat useless for this style =p. Finely carbonated medium body.
