COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a cloudy yellow with only minimal head. Intriguing aroma of grains, farm ground, vegetal, earth, hay... whatever. It has a strange smell but it is far from repulsing. Taste is tart but not so much, I thought all berliner weisse were supposed to be crazy sour/acid? It is really quenching though, I can really see myself enjoying one in the sun. Overall a nice and citrusy drink that is not agressive at all and might just be a gateway berliner for some.

Bottle from Geers. Hazy pale golden/white colour. White foam. Very lemony and tart taste but very drinkable. Tart, citrussy, even some floral notes in the nose. Very nice Berliner Weisse.

A really tasty berliner weisse. Deceptively tart considering its smoothness and overall balance. Pours golden and bright.

Grumbo (3456) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Bottle from trade with Gabriel. Pours pale gold with a short lasting white head. Aroma of corn starch, caramel, citrus, wheat and lemon juice acidity. Moderate sweetness, medium sour. Light body, slight oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish balances the bitter sweet and tartness well.

ccex (1344) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2017
11.2 oz bottle pours a hazy pale yellow with a tiny white head that vanishes quickly without any lacing. Aroma is full of vinegar and lemon, soap, and wheat. Taste is sour, but it grows on you. Suprisingly, the finish is sweet and fruity. Body is light with good carbonation. Very drinkable and a bit of a surprise.

Pale banana-wheat yellow with no head and little visible carbonation. Smell is thick, quite boozy, a little funky. Barn and vinegar flavors are quite prominent. Tart juicy finish. It’s ok.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Bjorn. I dunno, I found this beer to fall flat, just wasn’t much going on with it.

3.1
Zlotta (3502) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’Dranken Geers’, no bb date. Very pale yellow with a thin, fluffy, quickly diminishing, white head. Sourish-fruity aroma of lemon peel, gooseberry, rhubarb and wheat. Moderately sour, quite fruity taste of lemon peel, rhubarb, gooseberry and wheat, followed by a short, moderately tart, quite dry finish. Thin body, moderately astringent and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average to lively carbonation. Not too sour, enough taste for that abv (although very simple), quite refreshing. Still a bit bland, just average for the style.
