A: Poured from the 16 oz can into a weizen glass. Body is ever-so-slightly hazy golden-yellow with a 1+-finger whitish head.
S: "Yeasty" is the word that comes to mind. Banana esters, some bubblegum and generic fruitiness. Touch of citrus (lemony, maybe even lemon peel).
T: Initially I was surprised by the fruitiness and tart finish, as I thought this was an American Pale Wheat Ale. I get berries and black cherries and a good wheat twangy tartness at the finish. Also a touch of bananas and some modest lemony citrus. Finishes fairly clean with a neutral aftertaste.
M: Carbonation is prickly, but not offensive or intrusive. Heft is light.
O: Good stuff. I'm not a huge fan of a lot of tartness in my beer, so I probably won't come back to this one, but I can appreciate a good beer even if it's outside of my wheelhouse.
Serving type: can
