COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Napoleon hailed this tart beer style "the Champagne of the North." A lively and elegant masterpiece this Berliner Weiss is a kaleidoscope of fresh flavor.

Lightly hazy pale gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and crisp. Light lemony sourness, touch of sherbet. Light finish with the lemon lingering on.

Bottle - Sour and tart citrus. Hazy gold with a good white head. Tart up front and a very clean, disappears which is too bad. Great and refreshing.

Bottle as an extra in trade. Big thanks for this one. Pours very light yellow, perfectly clear, with a massive white fluffy head on top that goes on forever. Aroma of wheaty funk as expected, some interesting clove and coriander spice, lemon peel, hay, barnyard. Flavor is a twinge of sour lemons on top of some cracked wheat and a bit of zesty spice. A very crisp finish and without the dirty wheat that I usually find unpleasant at the end of the sip for this style. Some definite white wine notes that were picked up even before reading on the label that reislings were used. Extremely light bodied and almost spritzy carbonation. Really more of a sour golden ale than a wheaty Berliner. Lucky for me, that is more to my tasting. Good stuff as usual from New Glarus. If we really want to call this a Berliner, I don't think there is anything close to this. Yum.

Fresh bottle. Pours clear yellow/gold with towering white head. Aroma is lemon, peach. Taste is mouth-puckering...in a wonderful way! Nice vibrant lemon notes, misc. citrus and some nuttier, earthy wheat notes as well. Really glad I picked up a 4pack of this!

Bottle with Dallas and Jay. Pours a hazy cloudy yellow with huge white head and nice lacing. Aroma is light sour character and lemons. Mouthfeel is super light and sour character upfront followed by light lactic flavor, sour lemons and funky wheat. Really nice, super sessionable Berliner.

A shocker in so many ways! Tart, crisp, springy, fizzy -- just an absolute delight. The sparkling Riesling grapes really sing over the smooth wheat flavor. I served with an alfredo pasta with tomatoes -- delicious!

12oz bottle thanks to Darrel. Pours out a straw color topped with a small head. Nose is lemon grass spice citrus and a nice light funk. Taste is as the nose with more of the citrus notes and a nice refreshing touch on the end.

Syndicate hooked me up with this gem tonight as I was walking out of the Summer Funkfest tasting.... Thanks a bunch Darrel!! Poured into my Funkfest goblet... pale hazy straw colored brew.. nice white head with good lacing. Nose is a proper Berliner... floral and lemony... hints of wheat.. smells nicely acidic. Flavor is fantastic... big clean lactic/lemon wedge acidity combines with a light wheat malt essence.. long and lingering lemon on the finish. Light body with spritzy high carbonation ... the residual maltiness weighs it down slightly IMHO... but I am nitpicking. This is amazingly drinkable... I could sup this one all day or at least until my gut broke down or the cavities drove me away. Thanks again Darrel... I appreciate it!!
