COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few beer styles can match the delicate, sparkling character of the classic Berliner Weisse, with its light body and tart palate. It’s said that Napoleon’s troops referred to it as “The Champagne of the North,” high praise for beer, coming from Frenchmen. With Berliner Weisse, we pay tribute to the style, while giving it a distinctively American twist. Bright and thirst-quenching, the beer is enlivened by soft lactic notes.

Pours a not very clear, yellow straw color. Lightly carbonated. One finger white head which reduces to a film. Very thin lacing.

Aroma is tart and a lactic. A little persimmon, a touch of lemon.

Taste is tart. Good, but restrained. Again lactic, but more so in the finish. A little white pepper for some spice. Touch of lemon gives it some brightness.

Mouthfeel is light, tart, dry and refreshing. Lactic. Soft carbonation sort of amplifies the lactic, makes it feel a little yogurty.

Overall, this is a good one. Solid, simple, nothing crazy or experimental. I say that, but I still think it's a little restrained. I recommend this, and I would buy it again.

Oh boy, I'm in the dining room,

Pours just about as nice as an ol' Berliner could pale yellow, lots of bubbles, big fluffy white head, lil bit hazy.



The aroma is mild & a touch fruity, mostly dominated by yogurty lactic stuff, which is just fine.



The flavor is tart and fruity, far from bone dry but certainly not sweet either. Charming in the same light and mildly citrusy way that their flagship wheat beer finds it's self. It almost feels like a more modern version of that classic crusher to be honest.



Refreshing, flavorful and light... on all accounts enjoyable.

On tap at Sedona. Pours perhaps slightly hazy golden. Aroma is tart, slightly fruity, but not strong. Flavor is tart fruit, some lemon but not just lemon, a little cardboard but not a ton.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Lemon, tart, wheat, sugary cheerio aromas. Tart, lemon, cereal flavors. Easy drinking, but not a top notch berliner.

12oz bottle. My attempt to keep ticking Blvd. Golden color, clear, head dissipates quickly. Its very much a wheat beer with some light acidity and sourness, as opposed to most recent versions of the style. Just tart easy drinking wheat.

3.4
onceblind (10698) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2017
Slightly cloudy golden under a thin foamy white top. Bright lactic dry wheaty nose that’s got a touch of dry lemon peel about it. Brisk lactic sour flavor that mellows into a dry effervescent finish with whispers of lemon peel throughout. Very dry wheaty finish. Quick and tart and simple, but tasty.

3.4
BlackBeerPG (940) - Darien, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2017
Taste: crisp, tart, sour, cider, airy mouthfeel. Yeast, sour fruit nose. Gold, hazy, with white head and some lace. Medium/lite body. Balanced, cracker and apple notes.
