Berliner Weisse Tasting Notes for B#013 2


I’m a sucker for punishment and unfortunately am not really learning from my mistakes in brewing Berliner Weisse. I keep not getting the souring part correct and this one looked great and I loved the color but the flavor just isn’t where I want it. It’s not sour enough and there the slight off flavors and what’s I’m looking for in such a light beer. This Berliner Weisse tasting revealed that I still have a ways to go.

Sourdough bread small straight after the pour with a slight sulphur element. Hints of vegetables.

Hazy light wheat color with a good creamy white head

Sour, malty and bready. Bit of a watermelon in the background. Freshly squeezed lemon’s and limes

Light palate and carbonation. Dry mouthfeel.

Really light sour beer with an off smell that lets the beer down a touch.

      Hi Hugo,
      I was trying to sour with the wlp677 in the wort but it was eating through the sugar and started fermenting. I tried a yogurt source for souring wort too but that also didn’t work out. What was your process. I’m finding that this simple beer really is quite a hard one to nail.
