Pours a clear golden with a medium, foamy, white head that recedes quickly. The aroma is floral, consisting of wheat, lemon, hay, and hints of cereal and spice. Nothing to fancy there, but enticing enough. The taste has a healthy amount of tartness. Dry and with a slight sweet touch as well. The tart fades away quite slowly. Light in body, sticky in texture, and with some fizzy carbonation. This one is solid throughout. Easy to enjoy if tart beers agree with you. rubbishystuff (2521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2017

0.5 l bottle from ’Bierkompass’, import label says best before October 2015, presumably bottled about two years ago. Minimally hazy, golden yellow with a large, foamy, almost stable, white head. Sourish, citrusy aroma of lemon, wheat, gooseberry and straw. Moderately sour and citrusy taste of lemon, gooseberry, white grapes, straw and wheat, followed by a short, moderately tart and quite dry finish. Thin to medium body, a little astringent and rather effervescent mouthfeel, very lively carbonation. I’m not a huge fan of Berliner Weiße, but that may be due to the poor examples I’ve mainly drunk so far. This is a great example of why it may be called ’Champagne of the North’, it’s fortunately less sour and mellower than many other examples, it’s intensely fruity and has a nice body with a sparkling carbonation. I really like it!
