It took quite a bit of courage to order this beer. Man, I must really enjoy ticking beers. I typically loathe New Belgium beers, and this one is no exception. At least it's overpriced. The beer is pale yellow with a small white head. Aromas of lemon, hay, sweet lemon cookies, alcohol, grain. The flavor and the feel are poor. Out of balance, overly sweet, artificial tasting. Too much alcohol for a Berliner, lacking all of the qualities that can make this style so delectable. Another gimicky, bullshit beer from New Belgium, where sales take precedence over quality.

Bomber in NB chalice. Extremely disappointed even though it was cheap ($9.99) by New Belgium Bomber standards. Pours a very light color with little to no lacing. Smell is somewhat floral but average. First taste --- boozy with absolutely no indication that this is a Berliner Weiss. WTF New Belgium? It isn't even like the booze cancels out the sour, the sour is simply not there. Would agree to that it compares to Pluout, which also is terrible. Quickly losing faith in New Belgium though I will probably breakdown and try the Coconut Curry Hefeweizen if I can find it on tap. If you are in South Carolina spend your money on Westbrook Gose instead of this, you won't regret it.

Bottled the one time

It's a light grain colored ale with a fine broken sheet of bone whites. Smells sweet and grainy, a touch of funk when I first opened the bottle is gone in ten minutes. The are notes of grape and witbier on the nose also. Flavor is sweet, fruity, some apple meat, some hints of lemony tartness, but really this is not apparent until the beer warms quite a bit. The flavor is dominated by this tropical fruity character and it's sweetness. Medium on heavy for the style with low carb as well. This is another miss from New Belgium as of late. Getting tired of shelling out $7-$10 for these misses.
