What the brewers say

“This traditional sour German wheat beer has a soft wheat malt body with a clean tartness and crisp finish. Baywindow Berliner is a true sessionable sour ale. Prost!”

What our panel thought

“Beautifully clear beer. Playful aroma of bread crusts, lemon, and Juicy Fruit gum; crisp malt with some herbal notes behind it. Ultra-clean taste profile with a tangy-yet-elegant lactic wheatiness that shines on stage; pleasant lactic acidity and some grainy flavor, with hints of citrus and dry white wine in the finish. For a Berliner, it’s gentle on the palate; very clean, with low alcohol notes. Could serve as a ‘gateway Berliner’ for someone interested in trying the style but hesitant to approach a sour beer. Eminently drinkable—I could drink a lot of this.”

What our editors thought

“Faint lemon and nutty wheat on the nose, light and subdued. Bolder in the sip, as tight carbonation amplifies the light lemon. Flavor is confident in its simplicity.”
