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.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2010
Bottle. Pale, slightly hazy, yellow with a white head. Im not a big fan of the smell. Very wheaty with a yogurt-like acidity to it. Hints of lemon. The flavor is much better. A very clean and tightly held tart character. Not very aromatic except for some hints of lemon and tart apple. Prominent, but gentle wheat character. Ends dry and refreshing. Light body, easy on the palate. I like this. Very drinkable. The only downside is the nose.

A delightful Berlin style wheat beer. A good light sour smell. A very light shade of yellow with a mild haze to it. Its got a light sour taste but it has a great after taste.

Pinball (12030) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2010
bottle at mikkeller bar Cloudy yellow (first glass was clean yellow), huge smooth head that very soon disappears entirely. dry wild-yeasty (bretty) aroma, faint soursh, faint fruity. flaovr is citrussy salty sour, doguh, yeast, spanish champaigne, white wine. Interesting beer, quite citrussy and sour for a wheat, the flour or dough flavor is quite prominent. No idea if this is true to style, as it is my first berliner weisse (with this i have all styles ticked)

Bottle. Really a very drinkable and refreshing beer. Citrus, funk, hay, soft tartness. A very nice thirst quencher

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Had from bottle and on tap at The Bruery. Pours golden yellow with slight haziness and average white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma seems to always be off with this one. Lots of funk, rotten eggs, citrus undertones, and yeast/bread. Taste is much better if you can get past the aroma. Rotten eggs go away and instead you get the full citrus effect - lemons, oranges, pineapple - good amounts of yeast/dough in flavors, with sour/tart finish. A bit dry and astringent at the end with good lingering tart flavors. Definitely better when mixed with the Woodruff syrup on tap at the Bruery, otherwise I stay away from this one.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle from somewhere. Pours a very pale yellow, slightly hazy. Frothy head. Nose is a clean lacto note. Brett is minimal. Citrus is in there, as is a light grainy note. On taste, more of the same. Very light, very clean, very refreshing. I could drink a ton of this. Excellent.

750ml into heff glass. Nice cloudy light yellow color. lemony aroma with some funk, but overall smelled like a rice cooker. Flavor is sour and sharp but complex and really nice. Lemons, barnyard.

capped 750 ml. bottle. Been looking forward to this one for a while now. Pours a very pale yellow, even paler than a straw yellow. Very unique color. Slightly hazy with visible carbonation. It had a big white head that holds much longer than the 1809, but fizzles away leaving no lace in a very similar fashion as the 1809. The aroma is very zesty and refreshing. I really don;t particularly enjoy wheat beers, but BWs really make my mouth water. The aroma has light notes of banana, vanilla, wheat, cereal, and lemon. The flavor is so light and delicate. And, while it is so refreshingly drinkable, it is also very complex when taken in stride. It starts with a spritzy lemon flavor, which is followed by the wheat body, after which a tart and slightly funky barnyardy finish follows through. The finish is dry due to the wild yeast, and yet juicy because of the light moist body and the lemon character. It is light with very minimal carbonation on the palate, making it very tempting to take giant gulps of. Overall: I think this beer is overlooked because of its light quality, which some may perceive as being overly simple. There is lots there to dig for and enjoy. This might possibly be the perfect beer for spring/summer. If this came in moderately priced cans, it would be all I drank in the summer. I dont even remember how much I payed for this bottle, but I am definitely going back to buy quite a few more while I still can.

750 ml. Pale yellow body, cloudy. Bubbly white head mostly diminishing. Aroma of lemon peel, lime, hay, peach. Notes of sweat and cheese and a bit of mustiness. The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter and moderately acidic. It finishes lightly sweet, lightly bitter and moderately to heavily sweet. Light body, thin texture, lively carbonation. Nice fizziness on the tongue to compliment the sourness. Tastes of lemon, peach, dough, Band-Aid. Not complex, but refreshing. A good low alcohol, summer beer.
