big thanks to richardflyr for the excellent extra! enjoyed from a New Glarus flute.

a - brew poured a transparent straw, almost even neon yellow with a thin fizzy head.

s - nose is soft cheesy eggs...in a good way...highlighted with some lemon juice.

t - taste is like the nose, but a bit more rounded on the edges. really nice berliner. lemon over honey with a hint of sour eggs. very well balanced.

m - fizzy, just like you want a berliner to be.

o - while snow may be falling outside my window, this beer is a crisp refreshing reminder of how much i love the warm weather. a soft, easy drinking berliner (what berliners aren't?) with everything in the right place. extremely well done. i hope this one continues and i hope to have a case in my fridge for when the snow clears.

Very refreshing with a little funk that was just right. A great summertime beer. Honey and citrusy notes. Great color. Head was a nice color and held well for the style. Some lacing but just right for the style. Aroma was a little weak. Mouthfeel was crisp with just the right amount of carbonation.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A- Golden pour with a very active white head that holds throughout. Lots of bubbles on this one. Looks spot on for the style.

S- Lemon grass and metallic. Lots of good soft funk. Not to potent but great for the style. Small amount of honey, wheat and lime at the end.

T- Well this is the best tasting Berliner Weiss I've ever had. So crisp and refreshing. Lots of lemon grass and sweet funk. It's not the most complex beer but I feel this style isn't very complex in itself. I get lime, honey, sour patch kids, salt, and mineral water. I love this taste.

M- Perfect for the style. Light. refreshing, crisp and clean. Its races though your mouth and leaves a pleasant trail.

O- The best Berliner Weiss I've ever had. Love the style love this beer.
