A: snifter. pours a nice opaque yellow with an orange hue. Pure white head. mild retention rate. good lacing.
S: wonderful sour notes. smells like sour citrus with some wild flower honey. some wine like notes...like a chardonnay
T: what a great sour bite on this one. huge flavors from the pinot grapes. strong sour bite, like citrus but a nice sweetness from the grapes. slight honey tones. exceptional flavor from a berliner weiss.
M: nice clean and crisp mouthfeel. wonderful sours in this to make the mouth pucker. medium bodied and a active carbonation level.
D: amazingly drinkable. great flavor and body, and such a great example of the style. probably the best I have had in the style.

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.
