COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imagine yourself in Berlin’s Tiergarten enjoying this refreshing Berliner Weisse inspired beer on a warm summer’s day. Bretta Weisse honors the traditional beverage of the great Prussian capital, Berlin. Fredrick-the-Great was trained to brew it, and Napoleon’s troops called it “The champagne of the North”. Firm estery notes of stone and tropical fruit lead to Funky, yeasty, citrus aromas. Soft cereal and Oak flavors are enveloped by a firm acidity and tartness. The finish is dry and crisp; a thoroughly enjoyable beverage. At 4.5% ABV, one could imagine enjoying several Bretta Weisse’s in the Tiergarten, or anywhere else. This Berliner Weisse inspired Wheat beer was aged in 1700 gal French Oak horizontal foeders for 8 months.

10 oz draft pour at Goed Zuur. Sometimes I see Firestone Walker on a menu and figure that it's definitely going to be good. This was no exception. This is a hazy yellow beer with a very large white head. Funky, rich, amazing aroma of oak, oranges, wool, barnyard, pepper, and cheese. It's extra dry with sturdy acidity, though never harsh. Flavors of oranges, barn, lemon, pineapple, wheat, and oaky white wine are present. Expert.

On tap at the Firestone Walker Event at Takanoya, 1000 yen pints! It poured an orange gold with a minimal head of foam. Big oaky funk, red wine like aroma. Light bodied and nine dry with an intense acidic sour vineous quality, after it warms the oak even gives you a subtle vanilla quality. If you like sours you will adore this. Easy sipper on a hot sunny day, a cool dark evening not so much. Damn good though.
