I have been searching high and low for this beer for about a month in my neck of Wisconsin and the closest place I knew that had it was 45 minutes out of the way. Nonetheless I couldn't justify the drive just to pick up a 4 pack of this stuff so I made my peace that I wouldn't get to taste this May/June one off from New Glarus.
Well somehow the stars aligned two nights ago when I walked into the grocery store to pick up a few things for dinner. Low and behold, there in the cooler sat New Glarus Berliner Weiss. It was like fate and I could not pass up this opportunity to buy this beer.
I have patiently waited and tonight was the night. My 5 year old caught a bunch of panfish this afternoon that I fried up and I knew this Berliner Weiss was going to be the perfect pairing with the catch of the day. Was I right. This beer is delicious and I am in love with it.
Berliner Weiss is a new style for me so I am pretty excited and will undoubtedly be seeking out more of it as well as other Berliner Weiss. All I can say that this is a thing of beauty. Crisp, tart, and refreshing. I feel sorry for those of you in other parts of the country who can't get your hands on this gem of the Upper Midwest.
