Ohio

4.05/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 16 oz. can (Best By 18AUG2012) into a weizen glass.

A strong pour yields a 1-finger off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thick dusting and thin foam collar. The body is a hazy orange amber with a great jet of carbonation bubbles rushing upward. Some thin lacing can be seen throughout consumption but does not seem to stick around long.

Wheat is, of course, the dominating aroma here. This brings with it notes of bananas and lemon. Cloves are also noticeable as well as just the faintest hint of bubblegum. The aroma is surprisingly strong for a Kristalweizen.

Grainy wheat, lemon, green bananas, and lots of bubble gum start each sip with a bang. As the beer is swallowed, the lemon really bites but quickly fades back into the wheat flavors. Like the nose, the flavors here are quite strong for the style.

The body is light and refreshing, with the slightly meaty quality one would expect from a weizen. The carbonation is not quite as strong as expected but is definitely balancing the body nicely.

Serving type: can
