The Exchange Brewery 1^3 Berliner Weisse
Ontario, 4.2% alc./vol.
Style: Berliner Weisse
Welcome to the sour beer renaissance. Just ten years ago the Berliner weisse was a critically-endangered beer style found in just a handful of European breweries. Today it is one of several historic styles undergoing a revival as sours take the world by storm. Absent the earthen musty notes of Belgian lambics, Berliner Weissen (and this one in particular) are much cleaner tasting and very light-bodied. And if you’re feeling like something sweet, try it mit schuss, like they do in Germany: that is, with a shot of red raspberry or our house-made green woodruff syrup.
