Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2014
(Bottle) pours pale, light hazy yellow with a large off-white head. The aroma holds holds minerals, yoghurt, citrus, tart apples, some pipe tobacco, bbq fish, wheat and white bread. The flavour is dry, medium acidic and tiny bitter. Citric and tight malty with mineral notes. The mouthfeel is clean, tart, round and cramy with a near heavily carbonation. Balanced finish. Light bodied.

_angst_ (3047) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Summer Santa 2014. Pours hazy pale yellow with a huge frothy and creamy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing and trace on the glass. Smell is slightly sour and tiny malty with wheat crackers, unflavoured yoghurt, moist tobacco, moist hay, yuzu juice, minerals and lemon zest. Taste is sour with wheat crackers, unflavoured yoghurt, lemon juice, yuzu juice hay, dry soil, minerals and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is sparkling, champagne-like, dry, tart and light bodied. Finish is sour with wheat crackers, unflavoured yoghurt, lemon juice, hay, dry soil and lemon zest. The champagne mouthfeel is absolutely killing it and the rest of the beer is pretty much the perfect un.fruited berliner. Wow!

TXBadger (1512) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Pours a nice slightly cloudy pale yellow with LOTS of foamy light white head. Wheat, tartness, and funk on the nose; follows onto the palate. Took me about 5 mins to pour it, definitely over carbonated, but still damn tasty none-the-less.

refreshing, tart, a little funky-just goes to show how well new glarus does their thing.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Lightly acidic and lemony with a wheaty base and a nice mildly tart finish. Drinkable and refreshing.

bookman10 (662) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Pours a very light golden yellow, with massive head that dissipates quickly. Very effervescent with loads of bubbles. Sharp, citrusy aroma, with sour banana and other fruit esters. Flavor is quite tart, with a strong lemony-citrus tang, along with many of the same wheat beer flavors/esters, but kicked up a notch. Wish I had some essence of woodruff to mix in or some raspberry juice.

BMan1113VR (7869) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Thumbprint bottle, but it reads exactly the same as the old unplugged entry (berliner with grapes). Not sure why this is a new entry. Regardless: Pours with a hazy yellow hued body and an absolutely massive white head that lasts a bit. Aromas are tart, floral, grainy, mildly funky, lightly vinous, CO2 bite. Lots of lactic yogurt. Flavors are doughy, mildly fruity, funky, vinous, yogurt. Carbonic bite. Pretty nice. Some strawberry fruit notes. Very dry, Pleasant.

Bottle to goblet at the RBAG14 warmup Lemon, horse blanket/ass/penis...not sure, something horsey at least. Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Lemon, orange, a touch of wheat...very fresh tasting.

gramity (1441) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
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.
