New Glarus Thumbprint Series Berliner Weisse

Brewery: New Glarus Brewing Company
Country: USA
ABV: 3%
Style: German Berliner Weisse

Brewer Description: (from bottle) A few times a year we cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses. Always handcrafted, the bottle you hold is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. Napoleon hailed this tart beer style “the Champagne of the North.” A lively and elegant masterpiece this Berliner Weisse is a kaleidoscope of fresh flavor. Barrel fermentation, Riesling and Chardonnay grapes with Wisconsin White Wheat are bottle fermented with five proprietary yeast strains. A connoisseur’s rare jewel both spirited and subtle, enjoy your sparkling toast under summer stars.

My ratebeer.com rating: 3.1

Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 20th December 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A nice clear ruby red colour with a purplish hue and a one finger pink head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Berry fruit, vanilla, ice cream and yoghurt.
Taste: It was like watered down mixed berry juice with hints of vanilla, lactose and yoghurt. The taste disappears to nothing quite fast.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Tastes too watered down for me to enjoy it fully and on top of that, the taste disappears really fast from your mouth and just leaves you with nothingness.
