Big thanks to beersndrums for this one!

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass at cellar temperature.

L – Straw color with a nice 3-finger bubbly, rocky, white head. Fantastic retention and some nice lacing, as well. Only mildly hazy with a good amount of bubbles. Actually the amount of retention and lacing is surprising for the style.

S – Great sour grape or apple acidity with some grainy wheat and some funk, too. Smells nice.

T – Absolutely delicious. It starts off with lactic sourness with faint hints of grape or apple. As the acidity fades, some grainy wheat comes through along with a tiny bit of musty, funky yeast.

F – Light-bodied, great carbonation, an effervescent and tart mouthfeel, and a tart, somewhat earthy, and very dry finish. Some lactic acidity lingers for a bit.

O – This is a fantastic example of a Berliner weissbier. It’s light, crisp, mildly sour, crazy drinkable, and wonderfully tasty. This really can’t get much better. If you love Berliner weisses, check this one out. Thanks for the fantastic beer, Jared!

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

Appearance - Off yellow with a beautiful full white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles all over the place.

Smell - lots of tropical fruits. nice tartness at the end as well.

Taste - like the smell i get a bunch of tropical fruit and a subtle tartness, nothing too overbearing.

Mouthfeel - nicely carbonated, as I saw with the bubbles. leaves smoothly with not a lot of tart lingering.

Overall - really glad I got this in a trade as an extra. fun beer and quite delicious

Bottle as an extra in trade. Big thanks for this one. Pours very light yellow, perfectly clear, with a massive white fluffy head on top that goes on forever. Aroma of wheaty funk as expected, some interesting clove and coriander spice, lemon peel, hay, barnyard. Flavor is a twinge of sour lemons on top of some cracked wheat and a bit of zesty spice. A very crisp finish and without the dirty wheat that I usually find unpleasant at the end of the sip for this style. Some definite white wine notes that were picked up even before reading on the label that reislings were used. Extremely light bodied and almost spritzy carbonation. Really more of a sour golden ale than a wheaty Berliner. Lucky for me, that is more to my tasting. Good stuff as usual from New Glarus. If we really want to call this a Berliner, I don't think there is anything close to this. Yum.
