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.

Light yellow pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor have a lot of tart wheat notes as well as a hint of lemon. There is also a bit of spice. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice, delicate sour. Glad I got to try it.

This beer is the definition of CHARMING. Pours a pale yellow with huge fizzy white head that lasts longer then I would think from a 3% beer. Great lemony tartness and crisp wheat. You need to really chug this one to get its true greatness. I wish I had more.

Bottled: earlier Looks like a Berliner with light yellow color, three ever growing fingers of bone white suds from the continuous column of bubbles from the most inferior aspect of the glass. Smells like lemons, white grape skins, some funk, a little metal, some grain and lacto sharpness. Soon as the head dies down a hair I’m gonna taste it...Nice lightly crisp ale with some pear, some lemon (sweetened) a grain and rice mix, some light tartness and a bit of almost sweetness on the finish. Looks light, but feels heavier than I had anticipated, nice razor carb and a wet finish. I like this beer, I would drink all day from the can on the lakes.

Bottle, good Berliner, not very tart, wheat flavors and lemon dominate, it’s decent

mathieuc (987) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle thanks to BlackIPA, thanks a lot! Pours a pale yellow with not much head and not much lacing. Aroma is fruity, acid. Some tart wheat notes. Taste is indeed tart with fresh cereals flavors, nice citrus impressions. Body is light, this is really drinkable and refreshing. This isn’t complex but still a good berliner weisse!

Indra (2570) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 31, 2013
12oz. bottle. Tart, lightly citric and fruity aroma with notes of lemon, doughy yeast, wheat grain and a touch of dried flowers in the background. Lightly hazy straw yellow in color with a lasting, foamy white head and sticky lacing. Flavor profile is nicely tart with suggestions of green apple, white grape, lemon and pear, along with musty, prominent yeast and touches of wheat malt here and there. Palate is bone dry, effervescent and refreshing, with a very light body and a cleansing feel. This is a very tasty and authentic rendition.

12 ounce bottle
This may be one of the best New Glarus Unplugged / Thumbprint beers to date. In line with the rest of the sour program it is true to the style without trying to become too Americanized. I have not had enough real berliner weisses to know how it compares to the European examples but I do know this - if I could stock four packs of this in my fridge I would have it at all times.

Aroma / Appearance - A transparent golden base bubbles with life under a heavy white head. Lemon, citrus, and a light sour tang permeate the air with a mild texture not unlike tart lemonade.

Flavor / Palate - Smooth lemons sweep across the tongue and immediately brighten the palate. The yeasty transition carries well into a crisp finish with a mild sour feel that is like a glass of fresh lemonade. The result is very drinkable; you could easily have two or three of these with little palate fatigue at all. Grab some while you still can and do not sit on a fine release.

Yellow, hazy appearance and a tall, but quickly fading white head. Some yeast and a hint of sourness, but very little really, one of the most mellow Berliners I have had, and disappointing in its lack of sourness. But it is still a good wheat beer.

Pours pale white gold with a white head. Aromas of yeast, green apple, riesling grape. Bright and acidic with low carbonation. Riesling sweetness, wheat, granny smith. Very nice!
