Pours a soapy, tan head with good persistence. A yeasty, sour aroma. A hazy brown color. Starts EXTREMELY sour and builds into a nice, malty backone.

This is amazing. It's sour, malty, and slightly toasty with a great effervescence. Easily one of the best Berliner's I've ever had.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750 ml corked bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass. Bottled in March of 2014.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger off white head which slowly fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: A tart, funky, and sweet aroma with good hints of fruits, Brett, and yeast. Tart and sweet hints of fruit including some cherries, green apple, berry, prune, and lemon. Big funky presence of Brett yeast giving some cheese like barnyard aroma. Bready malt hints with some wheat, grains, biscuit, and cracker. Fairly acidic. A pretty interesting and good aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a funky, tart, and fairly sweet Weiss taste with big notes of fruit, Brett, and wheat. Nicely tart and moderately sweet taste of fruit with notes of cherries, berries, green apple, lemon, and dark prune and plum. Fairly acidic and dry. Good presence of funky Brett yeast with notes of funky and grassy cheese. Bready malt with notes of wheat, biscuit, grains, and cracker. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Nicely tart, drying, and smooth.

Overall: A pretty good twist on a Berliner Weiss beer. Good balance of funk with the tart fruit notes.
