“1809” is a very traditional interpretation of the “Berliner Style” Weisse with an intense blend of lactic tartness and complex fruitiness. This calls back to a time before the tradition of adding sweet syrups to Berliner Weisse beers pushed them towards being simpler and more sour. 1809 is champagne like with its acidity, complexity, and carbonation.
It is bottle-conditioned, unfiltered and unpasteurized. “1809” will age beautifully in a dark and cool location.
