Brewdog/Brodies Tayberry Berliner Weisse

Rating: 3.95

The final ‘special’ beer that I tried at Brewdog Glasgow last weekend now, this one was another that I tried luckily on keg before it disappeared, probably forever. This one was a Berliner Weisse style beer brewed at Brewdogs Fraserburgh ‘old brewery’ in collaboration with London based Brodies earlier this year. The beer was launched at Brewdog bars last Saturday and I managed to try it later that very night. The beer was Brewdogs first attempt at a sour beer and was made using Scottish tayberries to give the beer that extra edge. After reading about the beer, not long after trying Berliner Kindl Weisse as well, this one was a beer I wanted to try and luckily ended up in a Brewdog bar when it was available. I’m not sure how close it will be to the true Berliner Weisse style since I’ve only tried one before this but hopefully it will be a good one.
Tayberry Berliner Weisse

Appearance (4/5): A cloudy, medium amber colour with a thick looking, foamy white lacing on top about two millimetres thick that manages to leave some lacing on the glass as it is drank.
Aroma (7/10): Very sour as expected with some bitter lemon and a touch of sweetness from the tayberries. There is a lot of tart coming through with some background fruit and plenty of sourness.
Taste (8/10): As with the smell, the taste of this one is really sour with some berries and lemon along with a touch of sweetness making up the most of the taste. There is some citrus and orange zest with what I assume is the tayberries and there is a hint of wheat in the mix as well.
Palate (4/5): Smooth and very sour with some hints of sweetness throughout but not a great amount. Quite a tarty beer and bitter too but the beer goes down surprisingly easy.

Overall (17/20): A strange one this in that it was a lot more sour than I had been expecting but at the same time not as sour as other beers I’ve tried yet it was also a lot easier to drink than I had been expecting and went down a treat. Very sour and tarty but very nice to see Brewdog trying out a beer like this and it’s something I’d like to see more of.
