COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hottenroth Berliner Weisse is brewed in memory of Fred & Sarah Hottenroth, our founder, Patrick Rue’s 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.

A beer to have when you’re having more than one. Aroma of lemons, spice and grain. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a a short lasting white well laced head. Tart lemony taste with slight grain, medium body with a tart lemon finish

Pours slightly hazy hay-coloured golden yellow with a large fizzy white head that loudly and quickly fades like the cap on a soda. AROMA: wheat, bread/biscuity, lemon, hay, banana, earthy funk, cheese, woody, grassy and faint herbs. TASTE: wheat, bread/biscuity, lemon, hay, banana, earthy funk, cheese, white wine vinegar, woody, grassy, slight spice and faint herbs.

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 it’s just a bit bretty wheaty and a touch of acidic lemon rind. Dry and wheaty flavor with lots of funky Brett.

From notes (10/7/15). Good and refreshing after a long and unexpectedly hot day. It’s dry, thin, sour, and effervescent, and it’s a really solid if somewhat one-dimensional Berliner Weisse.

I’m bias...I love this style, fell in love with Berliner Kindl when I was stationed in Germany for 5 years. Pours a golden yellow color with big fizzy head. Aromas of citrus peel, yeast, hay. Flavors are tart sour apple, grass, and some barnyard.

750ml bottle pours hazy pale yellow with a finger of fizzy head. Nose is hay, lemon, mineral, wet straw, grain, citrus. Taste is crisp, medium acidity, wet grain backdrop with snappy farm lemon and citrus fruit, judt a hint of hayfield funk. Finishes tart with cereal grain, lemon, orange, wheat. Solid berliner.

ajnepple (6606) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2015
On tap at The Mayor of Old Town. Pale yellow and light hazy appearance with a white head. Aroma of tart lemons, corn, toasted grains, light herbs and light bread. Similar flavor, mildly tart with a light sweet finish and a light body. A pretty decent Berliner overall, but probably my least favorite Terreux so far (of 11).

3.4
odinstyr (795) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Pours a cloudy golden with a short lived fizzy white head. Smells lactic - acidic, sour. Taste is mildly sweet and moderately sour/tart.

3.1
solidfunk (8941) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Not much to this. Some citrus and some bread yeast. Pours cloudy yellow. Watery clean finish. Weird to drink a bruery beer that isn’t 20%. Tap at Churchkey.
