A hazy yellow beer which glows apricot in the light. Quite pretty.

Smell is promising. Slightly boozy, but with a prominent yeast profile. More spices than fruit in the scent.

The flavor falls short. It's rather bitter and lacks the sweet-n-creamy wheat flavor I expected. I also hoped for more fruity tones, but bitter is really the only impression I'm left with.

Mouth is OK, but a bit watery.

12 oz can poured into a Weizen glass, of course.

A- Hazy, unfiltered wheat beer look all the way. The brewer calls the beer a 'tan' color, and it fits. Looks a little bit golden-orange, too, depeding on the light. The right glassware makes for a big fluffy white head. It lasts and leaves a lot of lacing.

S- Bananas, pear, some light citrus and spice. Yeasty funkiness.

T- Just like the aroma, spot on. The citrus is light and lemony.

M- More body than I expected. A light tasting fruit and spice flavored brew could easily pass on any feel, this one does not. It even has some chewiness from those funky malts. Refreshing.

O-A good effort and version of the style.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of bubble gum and bananas in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell except that the banana flavors from the yeast are more prominent and there are hints of clove in the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a really nice wheat beer in a can, especially if you like the traditional flavors of bananas.

Poured from the can into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a slightly cloudy golden amber color with a small layer of off white head that goes away completely.

Smell: Some banana and clove with a rather strong tart lemon presence. The yeast seems to dominate.

Taste: Light and quite yeasty. The lemon like tartness is a bit overwhelming. The banana and clove notes are there, but aren't dominant enough. The finish is slightly tart.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with very mild carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: The tart notes are too strong but it still wasn't bad. I don't think I would want any more.
