4.3/5  rDev +12%

a: This pours a medium gold with moderate haze. The off-white head is short lived with big rocky bubbles.

s: A moderately-light clove and banana aroma dominates with a warm, spicy orange scent that makes me think of coriander. There is a soft wheat aroma as well.

t: There is a citrus tartness with a light sweetness and the balance being mildly tart. There is a spiciness as well as some wheat character. There is little bitterness and and hop flavor with a dry finish.

m: A medium-light body with some creaminess. The moderately-high carbonation seems to slightly dry the palate.

o: This is an easy to drink beer; I'm really enjoying the tartness and relatively dry finish along with the spicy and mildly fruit making this a great summer time beer.

Pours a golden copper, finger-width pearl white head that dissipates. 3 minutes in, no head what-so-ever, but very effervescent.

Typical weizen phenols and esters, spice and fruit dominate, banana and bubblegum take a backseat. Heavy wheat presence leads to a thick nose.

Light and fruity on the palate, berry and pineapple give way to a sharp yeasty-wheat characteristic. Fizzy, but with tight carbonation leading to an invigorating mouthfeel.

On principle I enjoy trying Sixpoint, however this is one of the best American Wheat's that I've had. Fantastic beer for when the temperatures keep edging upwards.

16oz can with a freshness date on the bottom.

LOOK: Bright golden hue, ring of lacing all the way down

SMELL: Bready, powdered clove, bubblegum, banana taffy, honeydew melon rind, grassy

TASTE: Smooth, crisp snap, moderate body, bread crust, green banana, lemon, clove, peppery, crackers, dry finish

Wow ... wow. Sixpoint pretty much nailed this one, did they rough-up some old German brewmasters for the secret recipe? I've only had a handful of this style but this clearly at the top. Congratz guys, you have a winner here.

16 ounce can, had a best before date on the bottom, but I cant read it, all smudged up...oh well they get points for trying.

Poursmedium hazed lighter amber, near dull golden, creamy off white head, goes to a satin sheen, low sheeting and fine fields of lacing.

Nose is loaded with tropical fruits, especially bananas.

Fruity and flavorful wheat, more bananas and other tropical notes, moderate sweetness, with a very minor hop presence.

As it warms, notes of sweet malts and honey enter the party, nice wheat from sixpoint, in a can for easy summer portability. Def will be purchasing more of this one as things warm up in a few months.

4.2/5  rDev +9.4%

Appearance: 3/4 inch head, orange brown in color, hazy, moderate carbonation

Smell: banana and clove

Taste: banana, clove, wheat and sugar at the end

Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, medium-light bodied, sweet and smooth

Overall: An excellent summer beer. This is dangerously drinkable. Nice light, crisp, and sweet. I bought a four pack and will be looking to pick this up more over the summer.

Picked up a can of this yesterday from a local bottle shop, cracked it open and immediately smelled a strong urine odor along with rotten bananas, For some reason I went on to actually taste this abomination of beer, it was like Donkey Kong went on a banana binge and the gave me a golden shower the next morning. Putrid bananas and strong dark urine is all I can think of....but I looked at the bottom of the can once I was done muscling through this beer, since I dont believe in drain pours, and it was canned in July of 2013...7 months ago, I hope thats the problem. If not, I am seriously surprised that this crap came from 6 point
