A: Mostly clear light yellow in color. Just the faintest hint of haze. Forms a smallish white head. Little retention, though the lacing is more than would be expected.
S: Aroma is very inviting. Mostly a blend of wheat and a mild lactic quality, but then there is a sweet, almost candy-like, grapey quality that balances the aroma nicely.
T: Taste is similar. Lightly flavored, with a mild, but rather noticeable lactic tartness, some wheat, and some mildly sweet vinous notes on the back end.
M: Light body. Moderate carbonation. Mild tartness.
O: A very nice representation of the style. Simple and approachable.

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.
