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.

Bottle from Kasey, thanks! Pours the color of lemon juice and little to zero head. Nose is super tart and some medium funk aromas. Flavor is tart and mildly funky and lemony. Refreshing and light. One of the few of the style I have had and its great. Almost more like some kind of soda.

Bomber to tulip - pours clear with a bubbly champagne head, quickly dissipates, color like a dark white wine. Aroma of white grape peel, peaches, traces of barnyard funk. Spritzy on the tongue. Brett, lemon zest, light woodiness, more peach nectar, dry brett finish. Packs a ton for this abv.

rougeau13 (2688) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Bottle. Hazy yellow-orange with a short-lived white head. Funky, tart aroma with tons of fruit. Heavily carbonated, really slick and light bodied with an abrupt fizzy finish. Tastes funky and fruity and lightly tart.

Wow -- tart and tangy for a low gravity beer. Aromas of honey, sour lemonade. The raspberry comes out on the palate, with a lemony, orange delicacy and a deep minerality.

Pours clear yellow with a small white wisp. Aroma is tart sweetness and fruit. Taste is a smart tartness that hits quick and then fades. It leaves a nice fruity sweetness and dry palate. Great beer.
