Being new to the craft brew scene I had no idea what a berliner Weiss was, but figured it’s from New Glarus and worth a shot.
A – Light yellow with a finger of head that dissipates to a slight fizz on the top of the beer
A – I don’t like the smell of malt, just want to get that out there. I am over powered by the smell of malt and green apples. Not horrible but not in my wheel house.
T – Wow, didn’t expect that. While I smelled apples in the aroma I was taken aback by the puckering apple tartness. Very refreshing taste.
MF– Light bodied that leaved the mouth salivating. Quite a bit of carbonation that leaves your tongue tingling.
D – This would be a great beer for drinking on a hot day but one (maybe two) would be quite enough.

Pours a huge, fluffy white head with tons of sticky lacing clinging to the glass and impressive retention. Brew is a lively, hazy pale lemon yellow.
Extremely tart and musty aroma. Smells of light citrus, funk, hay, candi sugar, banana, and earth. Light, delicate, but not subtle. Inviting.
Flavor is lighter and more restrained than the aroma. Some musty funkiness right up front, mingling with light, creamy wheat. Citric acid - lemons and lemongrass, and a hint of peel - follows, with sharp tartness, washing over your palate.
Light, bright, sharp, refreshing. Fair amount of sting, but it's welcome in this presentation. Very lively. Extremely short finish for the bulk of the flavor, although there is a lighter lingering stickiness.
This is an excellent, excellent beer. It's exactly what you want on a warm Summer day. It strikes me as a very low ABV wheat-based tart Saison.
