Beer 398/365 – Professor Fritz Briem 1809 Berliner Weisse

Professor Fritz Briem 1809 Berliner Weisse

Style: Berliner Weissbier

ABV: 5.0% ABV

Purchased at: I don’t even remember at this point!

What makes this beer different: My first Berliner Weisse, so not sure what the standard is.

Will I be drinking this again: I would! But I only remember seeing it once on store shelves.

Grade: A-

10/13/2011: I can’t believe its been almost 5 months since I have updated an actual beer on this site. When I realized I was so close to beer 400, I figured I had to at least gut that out. Although I would love to make it to 500 someday.

Onto the beer. I picked this one up because of a suggestion from a friend who said it was a great beer, and a great style of beer. Had to read up a bit on the style before sampling this because I have only had one beer of this style before. To over simplify, sounds like its a traditional wheat beer with a sour kick. Lots of head on the initial pour, and you could smell the sourness without even putting your nose up to it. Also a musty lemon type smell. Again to over simply if I had to describe this to a non-beer drinking friend, I would say this tastes like a lighter sour version of a traditional wheat. Lots of tang, but not too much. Oddly thirst quenching, and thirst inducing at the same time. Would love the find more of this for a hot summer day. Pretty unique and worth trying if you stumble across it!

Picture of the day: If you are what you eat

  1. The Bruery’s Hottenroth is a great readily available Berliner Weisse, though its got a hefty $ tag and only comes in at 3% abv.

  2. Looks like a damn fine beer. Great photo too! I’ll have to hunt this one down.

    Cheers!
