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.

This beer is amazing. New glarus knows exactly what they are doing. I am so fortunate to get this whenever I want.

Holy hell this is good. Sparkling gold pour, white head. White wine grapes, funk, lemons, spritzy carbonations. Awesome. Need more ASAP.

One of my very favorite beers, and perfect for the late spring/early summer. Even with the very gentlest a pours, a massive pillowy head pushes out of the glass. If your glass has one of those little laser-etched bubble-generator things (whatís the actual name for those?) in the bottom, donít be surprised if the thick, foamy head continues to billow out into a cone of froth towering over the glass. The beer itself is golden-straw colored, almost with an extremely faint tinge of emerald green. It smells tart, very lightly grassy. The taste is crisp and clean, slightly tart and a bit sweet, maybe a bit lemony. Mouthfeel is light and lively with carbonation, coupled with acidic sourness. Overall, you could almost liken it to drinking a Mountain Dew in its palate and tartness, but obviously it is quite different in its flavor. Very drinkable, very refreshing, delicious, and sessionable.

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!

(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.

pepsican (1444) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Gold pour with a spritzy white head. Aroma lifts all over the damn place. Lemon, funk, bit o lacto offered. Delicate, yet extremely aromatic brew. Flavor lifts all over the damn place with a medium sour, and a touch of salt. Lively brew, prickly carbonation. Finish is quick, thirst quenching, extremely light and clean. This is the kind of beer I could drink a four pack of in an hour without much thought.

TXBadger (1334) - 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.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 [Bottle] Pours pale gold with a good sized white head that quickly fades. Aroma is dominated by wheat, but nice. Taste has just the right amount of tartness, with lots of wheat, and some not quite ripe plum and grape. Fairly thin mouthfeel, smooth, good length finish with a lot of wheat. Overall, this is a fantastic summer session beer that I wish I had a lot more of and I hope becomes an annual summer offering. Not surprising given this was made by the master of wheat beers. Old rating: 7/3/9/4/19 = 4.2.

Re-rate: A few bottles later, and Iím liking this more and more. A perfect summer beer. Bumping this a couple of tenths.

The beer is the color of pale straw, translucent, and highly effervescent. Even when poured carefully a massive, yet delicate looking white head fills at least half of my tulip glass. After a couple of minutes the head settles down leaving behind respectable lacing on the walls of the glass, and a few millimeters of pure white foam that floats on the pale yellow liquid. Itís an attractive beer. The nose is a combination of overripe lemons, mild Belgian yeast funkiness, and cider-like tartness (notes of sour green apples). The taste is lemony, crisp and tart, but not overly sour. The mouthfeel is light and bubbly from the high level of carbonation. The finish is dry, crisp and clean. Not many flavors linger in on your palate, but the carbonation and acidity leave a slight tingling sensation on your tongue. Dan Carey and New Glarus have put out a gem here. I love the interplay between the lemons and the Belgian yeast notes in the aroma. The taste is fruity, crisp and refreshing. Iíd describe the smell/taste as being akin to lemon yogurt crossed with apple cider, with the effervescence of champagne. If you want something with mouth puckering sourness, you might find this beer a little tame, but for those testing the waters of sour beers this would be a good entry point. At 3% abv the effects of the alcohol are unnoticeable to me. Without question Iíve found a new favorite Berliner Weiss! I just wish I would have brought home more than a four pack. If anyone happens to be passing through Wisconsin in the near future I strongly recommend you give this beer a try.
