4.21/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

eyes...
(although at this first moment I am enjoying the audible sizzle...)
bright white head fizzles into nothingness in a matter of moments, mostly clear with a hue of dark straw, very active carbonation rises up even though there is no head, on par for the style matey

nose...
big bready dry banana (yeah, all that and a bag of plantain chips), nice fruity esters and some bubble gum snap, wheat driven funkish notes that smack of euro tradition.. brooklyn ? nice!

taste etc...
as refreshing as a great soft drink... except better, lemony notes really tease the mouth, the carbonation makes this so easy to drink, the sensations are all at once here, a mouthful of all the flavors you would and should expect, the nose is strong but the flavors of wheat and banana are in balance here, the tinge of sourness really is just making this an all day sucker, this is very refreshing and will be in my go to box this spring/summer for sure.

verdict?
drinks a bit lighter than some straight up weiss beers, so a better option for a pool party etc.
this is very tasty but remains really light and drinkable.
the can is convenient... and a hit in this household this fine evening

Serving type: can
