look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Traded for a couple 4 packs of these and was time to drink my first one last night.

A: Pours a hazy straw color, with a lush foamy white head that clings remains for some time and lacing that easily clings to my Deschutes Teku glass. 4.25

S: Dominated by wheat aromas, perhaps a cheesy smell as well, with hints of lemon coming through in the end. 4.00

T: Was happy to see that the sweetish wheat flavor was nowhere to be found but instead just mildly funky, refreshingly tart with a lemonade sweetness. 4.50

M: The mouth-feel is gorgeous on this Berliner Weiss, Light but not thin, highly carbonated and intensely refreshing. On a warm summers day I fear there would be no limit to the amount of these I could drink. 4.75

O: From beginning to end just a really great beer, can't wait to drink the others I have, highly suggest searching this out if you like the style. 4.50

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

appearance: big white fluffly head, hazy golden color, fairly opaque. lots of carbonation bubbles actively fizzing upwards

aroma: sweet lemon grass hits the nose with some faint white grapes and tartness to round it off. has that freshness smell of summer rain

palate: hints of tartness tickle the tongue, flavor fills the mouth very well, not too overly carbonated on the tongue and booziness is non-existent. very easy drinking as NG is known for

taste: soft lemon, grass, grapes, and a hint of honey accented by the barrel flavoring and a nice little kick of sour in there. just a great, robust, easy drinking, summer beer. one of the best BW's ive ever had

overall: a great beer from a great brewery, this this the quintessential summer craft brew. IMO the 3rd best thumbprint behind IIPA and Enigma. Wish it had a touch more sourness to it, but leaving it light definitely makes it a bit more unique and probably will attract more beer drinkers. Will be a huge memorial day weekend hit!

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

poured 12oz bottle into teku.

A - Faint hazy straw yellow with massive fluffy white head that slowly falls and leaves behind a plethora of lacing. I've never seen so much lacing before. The stream of bubbles is like a mesmerizing tornado.

S - Smells like a Chardonnay with sour tart grapes.

T - A nice not so tart sour grape with faint lemon.

M - Light and great carbonation. Fizzy and crisp, refreshing and satisfying on summer day.

O - Dan Carey I bow to your greatness on producing delicious quality beer.
