P: 16.9 fl oz flip top bottle in to a DFH snifter

A: SRM is pale yellow with a subtle green tinge. Cloudy, no sediment. Head is off white, 1 in, dissipates to line the top of the beer. Medium carbonation. Medium lacing.

S: Medium wheat notes with tea notes and light banana esters.

T: Wheat flavors hit palate initially, but are immediately cut by the tea and some hops. Nice earthy/natural flavor from the tea. A signature light banana essence is present. Aftertaste is clean, slightly bitter, wheaty, and tea is noticable.

M: Medium/light body. Combination of a wheat beer and tea, giving a feel that is both chewy and very light, crisp, and clean. Finish is very dry.

O: Good beer, but like most Italian beers, more money than they are worth. Glad I tried this beer; it is nicely balanced with the wheat and tea components. Very dry finish, which I like. I don't think I'll buy this beer again b/c of the price, but would definitely be pleased to see it at a tasting.

Yellow to greenish color, slightly opalescent. Lot of carbonation. White foam, but not so beautiful, especially for a weizen.
In the smell the weizen-ess is there, with its tipical yeast, some banana, wheat, and a hint of lactic. The tea is perceptible.
In the mouth the tea leaves are very present. Peculiar, refreshning, and pleasant.
Again wheat, some banana, not invading. Well amalgamated.
Good cereal in the finish, with a soft bitterness inthe aftertaste, probably dued to the tea.

500ml flip-top style bottle

Pours a very pale yellow color with a slight haze and a fluffy white head that sticks around for a while. Soft wheat and a gentle spiciness invite the nose. Light in body, very drinkable and every sip begs for another. The addition of green tea adds a subtle but exciting herbaceous flavor on the finish. A very interesting beer and one to try for sure. Pretty pricy though, about 11 bucks for the 500ml.

"Ale Mixed With Tea."

A-Pours hazy light orange with about an inch of fluffy off white/peach colored head. Leaves rings of sticky lace as it reduces.

S-Smells like a fairly typical estery Belgian blonde ale, with a touch of herbaceous tea that's barely noticeable. Heavy on the coriander and white pepper aromas.

T/M-I'm not sure what to think with this one. There's some earthy wheat flavor, but not enough that I would call this a "weizen." I don't taste any trace of tea. Drinks like an earthy Belgian blonde with subtle wheat flavor.

O-Nothing special. I was excited to try this based on the description, but it falls short.
