Beer Review: New Glarus Copper Kettle Weiss
This one had me at hello. It has a strong wheat-lemon aroma that one would expect from a dunkel weiss. It's sort of yeasty too. It has a murky, cloudy orange-gold color to it. The head is thick and strong. The wheat and malt flavors are incredible. It's almost invigorating. The flavors really attack your taste buds, activating them and making them sort of tingle. This is no watery beer. The carbonation may be too much for some people, but I thought it was perfect. It works well with the balance of sweetness and the slight bitterness from the hops. The Copper Kettle Weiss reminds me of a Hacker-Pschorr Weisse, but better. This is an October seasonal, so get it while you can. If I had the means, I'd have a half barrel on tap. I'll settle for picking up a six-pack the next time I'm out.
