Huguenots may have originated the style as they traveled through France to Flanders, having first mentioned it in the 1600s. During their time, there were said to be seven hundred weissbier breweries in Berlin. Later, in 1809, Napoleon and his troops identified Berliner Weisse as the Champagne of the North. He requested the beer be served w/syrup to cut its extreme level of acidity. Bayrischer Bahnhof’s interpretation is a slightly softer, more mellow version of the “Berliner Weisse” style with a beautiful balance of tartness, fruitness, and sweetness.

    Pours very clear with no head. Nice amount of carbonation. Aroma is quite sour with grainy note as it should. Taste is sours and slightly tart with a dry grain background. Little bit of an apple or grape wine taste to it. Finishes off lightly grainy and dry. Fairly interesting beer.

    I had this beer at Torst in Brooklyn, NY. I didn't think I would like this beer but it was AWESOME. It was light, effervescent, and tasted a bit like a nice sweet white wine. I liked this a lot. This is a great example of a low alcohol beer that could be consumed ALL day and enjoyed in the summer. Brilliant.

    pours a very light, hazy golden color with a small dense white tan foam with active carbonation throughout the beer and leaves a little lace. The aroma is very light and some wheat with some lemon zest. The taste has a much stronger flavor than the aroma would let on. Very tart, and I do mean very tart, and dry with lots of lemon sourness. The wheat base comes out after that with a bit of sweetness and a touch of spiciness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is auite light with strong carbonation, very refreshing, tart but refreshing.

    Bottle from slowrunner - Wish List item. Pale straw yellow hazy pour, tall white head, decent lacing, excellent carbonation. Tart lemony aroma with some wet hay, hint of grassy hops. Flavor is tart and lemony, zesty and zippy, bigger than 3.1% ABV would indicate, some wet hay and wheat, light lemongrass. I love this style, super refreshing! Thanks Chris - it didn't disappoint.

    This beer is very light and refreshing and I certainly enjoyed it. A cloudy gold colour that had a huge white head. The aroma was yeasty and slightly sour with a touch of bready malt. The flavour was light, and had a malt forwardness with a citrusy finish.

    This Berliner Weiss pours a slightly cloudy light yellow gold color from a 330ml bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is slightly tart and lemonish. A lighter bodied Berliner weiss. Interesting, its tart and lemonish and much milder than Berliner Kindl Weisse. Given that the Kindl Weisse is a sharp kick in the teeth, this beer is a mild bump in the night. Its tart and refreshing, but I can’t help but feel it’s kind of watered down. It has a very mild flavor and seems somewhat watery. Part of that is the 3% alcohol, but it still feels watered down. Guess I need to try more of this style. Mouthfeel is round and a touch thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is a touch tart and slightly bitter.

    A Pale pp yellow color, some yeast. An herbal flower- fresh linen scent..... Lemon juicy is the finish, overall its brisk and considerably smooth at the same time with a refreshing level of sourness.... Adequately and finely carbonated.... some other citrus flavors came out, and a dandelion/fresh grassy thing which adds some bitterness and balance...... Maybe some sweet fruit could partcipate with this?

    An extremely pale, straw, gold color (about as light as I have seen) with an effervescent carbonation that holds up an initially three-finger thick, almost pure white colored head. The aroma has a light tartness to it that is both a mix of wheat aromas and fermentation derived notes. The wheat almost seems to contribute more to the tart aromatics than the expected fermentation character. Other aromas of hay, crushed soda crackers, a surprising amount of grain character and even a light lemon zest note are all noticeable. Perhaps the aroma is not quite as funky as I would prefer, but it is nice and refreshing, which is what a good example of the style should be.

    Very light bodied, as expected, the carbonation adds a bit of texture to what would otherwise be a very watery feeling beer. Only lightly tart, though I suppose this might be when comparing to something like a Lambic. Very dry tasting too, I am not sure that I get a sense of any residual malt sugars here. The sourness contributes a lemon like, or perhaps even lime like flavor here. The beer finishes with a light, grassy-grain character and a hint of soda cracker flavors and pretty much no bitterness. The tartness provides the typical balance that a hop bitterness would provide. Despite the sourness (and probably actually owing to it to some degree), this is a very clean tasting beer.

    With the sediment added the nose becomes much more yeasty, a touch like raw dough and the flavor picks up some additional roundness as well as a bit of yeast bite. This is certainly something that I could quaff in mass quantities on a warm day. This is very light and refreshing & I like that the sourness of this brew makes this even more appetizing. This is a touch simplistic though, I would prefer a little bit more complexity and fermentation character. This is definitely enjoyable though and I will be curious to see how this beer ages.
