Marlene is the first mother of all Berlin whites - at least in terms of taste and in terms of the sophisticated range of the Schneeeule brewery. Master brewer Ulrike Genz has put a lot of effort into breathing new life into the Berlin classic. In painstaking small-scale work, she collected the remaining bottles of old specimens of the beer style and removed the yeast from them. Awakened to new life, the venerable yeasts served as the basis for Ulrike's very own Original Berliner Weisse.
The result is beer that ties in with the weddings of the Berlin whites. And we don't mean the era when beer was mixed with syrup, but the time before that, when the crisp sour beer was still valued for its unusual character. In order to give the beer a worthy name, Ulrike chose the title of a Berlin icon: Marlene Dietrich. It is worth knowing that the Schneeeule brewery has both Marlene and Dietrich in its range. Marlene is the Berliner Weisse advertised here in its pure form, Dietrich, on the other hand, is the stored version of Marlene, which matured to its aromatic splendor over the course of a year.
Marlene presents herself in a pale yellow robe and wears a fleeting crown of delicate, white foam on her head. A fine scent of yogurt, green apple and good fruit vinegar rises in the nose and combines there with a hint of dill and subtle citrus notes to form a seductive composition. The initial taste follows the first impression and inspires with wonderful acidity, citrus-fresh fruitiness and champagne-like perlage.
