4.38/5 rDev +14.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 16-ounce can into a Relic Brewing Co. imperial nonic pint glass.
A: Somewhat hazy, golden orange color with great clarity and plenty of carbonation beneath a thin head of bone white foam that disappears quickly.
S: Funky wheat, lemony spices and herbal, grassy, citrus hops proceeded by lemon zest and minty gum.
T: Tart, sweet and juicy up front with plenty of fruity malt esters thrown in the mix. A tropical, peppery banana flavor grips around mid-palate before breaking with an herbal, tart and drying front of bubblegum esters. The finish is sweet and dry with a lingering hint of tart, lemon bitterness and a wheaty, yeast twang.
M: Light, crisp, flavorful and well-balanced with a dry, yet somewhat puckering tartness.
O: Hell of a quenching, tart summer weizen with plenty of balance, carbonation and light, fruity citrus flavors to keep you going. At 5.2% ABV, this packs a lot of flavor for a sessionable beer and I'd pack it in a cooler to and from the beach for sure.

3.5/5 rDev -8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a sam adams custom glass: color is copper to light amber, nearly transparent, good carbonation with some fine bubbles; head is off white to light tan, presents 1/2 inch thick then dissipates quickly to a ring along the glass edges, no lacing.
Smell is very subtle, feint bananas, light cloves, then tart, not strong but noticeable.
Taste is very tart, then i checked he best before date and it read 7/29/2013... flavors are not bad, but surprising for a brew that is supposed to a filtered wheat. Anyway, tart, some light vinegar, then light banana and clove notes.
Mouthfeel is sharp, biting, but not awful, good sour sharpness on the tongue, touch of vingear with lingering sweetness.
Overall, hard to judge this brew, i did not notice the 1 year old expiration on the 4 pack before purchasing and I've not had other kristalweizens of note. either way the flavor was good for an expired brew. i'll seek out a fresh version for comparison.
