What little I now about Berliner Weisse is this:
- Low abv (2.5 - 3.5%)
- Very low IBUs (3-8), no aroma hops are added, and often the beer isn't even boiled, with the hops added during the mash.
- A good measure of of unmalted wheat is used in the grist.
- There should be a pronounced lactic character without any acetic notes.
This lack of flavour and intensity has led me to believe that I have got a form of Berliner Weisse Lite on my hands. The cheeky sprog on the label makes this seem even more likely. Perhaps Barry can shed some light on this beer from his newly adopted home in Germany?
