37 – Berliner Weisse

If you’re a fan of sour beers, then you’ve probably already heard of Berliner Weisses. Crisp and refreshing they go down easy, but are these clean modern takes authentic? In this episode Mike tries to brew (to the best of his knowledge) a somewhat traditional take on the Berliner Weisse, something with a mellow sour funk that may end up taking quite a long time to finish…



We also try these other examples of the style (or thereabouts):

Undisclosed – Mystery Infected Beer
Siren Craft Brew – Calypso – https://www.sirencraftbrew.com/
Garage Beer Co – See Watch – https://www.garagebeer.co/
