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

Thanks to black13 for the bottle! A personal whale of mine that didn't last a single hour in my house when I got home. Split into a pair of New Glarus flutes and shared with TulipSnifter.

A: Pale gold in the glass with a quickly receded white head. Just a few bubbles remain on top and no lacing shows up on the glass. Everything points to a well done Berliner so far. 4/5

S: From the label description comes a reference to champagne, pinot grigio, and reisling grapes. Well this smells about as winey as they come on the nose. Green grapes, green apples, and green mellon (honey dew) dominates here. No way this can be described as a traditional berliner weisse, or even beer at this point, but wow is this interesting. 4.5/5

T: If I was told this was champagne I'd be sold. Heavy on the tart grapes with a good dose of acid. Cucumber and pear compliments the sparkling beverage. As dry as they come. 4.5/5

M: Prickly and tongue bruising. Paired with some fatty cheese, this would scrub the palate and keep it fresh. 4.5/5

O: Can't grade this on a typical metric for the style. That aside, it's really remarkable and very unique. At over three years old it shows no signs of its age and is shining brilliantly. Another Dan Carey success. 4.5/5

4.21/5  rDev +0.7%
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
