The aroma is reminiscent of apples and fresh cut lemons. Pours a tantalizing straw color. Thick head retention, as per the foam that gushes out from the opening. This is a wonderfully balanced berliner weiss with an emphasis on a restrained tartness and refreshing citrus and apple tone. Some banana and sugar on the back end, with a yeasty undercurrent. A superb beer.

Rated this as a 4 on Untappd and am doing so here, as well. Had this last night from a stemmed Southern Tier glass (Tulip?).

This tasted great and was very crisp and refreshing. Nice color! I got a hint of fruitiness (Apple? Banana?) in the first few sips I took. There wasn't much lacing in this one but the bottom of the glass I drank from did show a little sediment/yeast at the bottom. Not a big deal. I poured out those last few drops.

Solid 4-star beer from New Glarus. Definitely would drink this again in the future.

First proper review, well hot dog! Thanks to @jdhende for this delicious bottle.

12 oz. pour into tulip.

A: Big ol' heap of dense foam like meringue. Good amount of lace. Carbonation is clear and in full force. Cloudy straw.
S: Tons of Lemon. Small amount of must & saline.
T: Small touch of honey but immediately goes into citrus. Tart up front but no residual acid. Aftertaste is practically non-existent, but a lil' yeast.
M: First sip is effervescent as hell. Last sip has a tiny amount of creaminess. Body is pretty light.
O: I wish this came in cans because I would drink a case of this on all of the patios. I love me a Berliner Weiss and this has none of the usual barnyard/extra-super-tang that makes me feel like I'm getting an ulcer halfway through drinking one. Keep doing what you do, NG.
