COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hottenroth Berliner Weisse is brewed in memory of Fred & Sarah Hottenroth, our founder, Patrick Rues grandparents. This tart, German-style Berliner Weisse is as authentic as it gets. We use lactobacillus and a hint of brettanomyces to sour this very unusual, low gravity wheat beer. To cut the tartness for those with sweeter tastes, raspberry or woodruff syrup is a traditional way to sweeten the beer. Almost an extinct style, we hope to help revive the Berliner Weisse in memory of two great people.

Bottleshare at Mr Smiths pad. Hazy gold beer, a very short lived white head. Some egg on the nose. Palate is light, dry and has decent fine carbonation. Light tangy citrus, orange and lemon. A bitter and wonky funk underneath. Light semi dry finish. Pretty lame all round.

onceblind (9188) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Light hazy straw hue with a thin white rocky top. Big cheesy sulphuric fart on the nose, but you can kinda get a little banana and guava fruitiness underneath it. Better taste than the aroma but its just a bit bretty wheaty and a touch of acidic lemon rind. Dry and wheaty flavor with lots of funky Brett.
