A Berliner Weisse is a cloudy sour beer, with a pale straw colour and light bodied flavour. This German Beer offers a tart fruit flavour and a low ABV of between 2.8% and 3.8%, it’s also a wheat beer, so it has a carbonated refreshing edge.
Classically, these are often flavoured with a raspberry syrup. Põhjala Breweries has created a modern spin on this with the raspberry Berliner Weisse “Prenzlauer Berg”, which is brewed with the fruit rather than adding the syrup once served.
The Berliner Weisse sour beer offers up a unique and refreshing experience for those looking for a lactic, low calorie European favourite. If you’re looking to mix up your usual selection, why not add one of Tap Door’s fine selection of Berliner Weisse to your craft beer box.
