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.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bomber into a willibecher. Consumed on 5/4/14 - reviewed from notes.
Appearance: Pours a very pale gold/yellow and leaves a couple fingers of white head that sticks around for a while. Carbonation bubbles can be seen floating to the surface.
Smell: Delicious berries, slight funk, lemon, citrus zest.
Taste: Big citrus zest, bready malts, slight funk.
Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a light to medium, slightly creamy body. Finishes a tad dry.
Overall: Definitely a solid big Berliner Weisse, terrific aroma, solid beer overall.

22oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. Bottled in June 2013. (11 months old)
Pours a hazy pale yellow color. A thick, full white head off the pour, fades to a retentive layer with some fine carbonation bubbles. Bits of lacing.
A very effervescent, zesty aroma. Lemon zest, some grapefruit. Definatly some kind of yeasty or wheat esters.
Nowhere near as tart as I'd like a Berliner to be. Not sour at all. Tart fruits, lemon peel, orange peel, maybe some grapefruit peel. A light yeast ester. Wheat malt kind of rounds things out in the finish.
Medium to light in body. Somewhat refreshing. I was really hoping for a lingering sourness, but nothing...
Not super flavorful or complex. A bit disappointing, I expected more from new Belgium.
