2013 (Thumbprint) batch. 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Huge thanks to Yamar68 for this one!

A - Pours a hazy light yellow/amber body. Three fingers of fluffy white foam initially that simmers down into a super thin capping and some patchy edging. Moderate lacing and a swirl creates a new layer of foam.

S - Fruity with notes of lemon, pear and green grapes. Some lactic acid followed by a lot of crackery malts. It almost finishes like a fruited adjunct lager in terms of how the tart fruitiness goes up against a cereal graininess. Not overly exciting but very standard for the style.

T - Tart lemons and pear with a huge wave of wheat and crackers. This is almost lemon-meringue like. Some lactic acid and a dry wine-like finish. Extremely refreshing and satisfying. Mouth feel is crisp yet full and creamy.

O - Nothing ground breaking, and honestly I've had home brews that were better, but this is still a really solid berliner. I would love to have regular access to this as it would probably never leave my fridge during the summer.

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.
