Received this from my main guy BeerTruth and unfortunately, this is my last one. I’ve really enjoyed this beer so far this summer. Drank from my Harriet Brewing nonic pint glass while watching the Heat vs. Celtics.
Appearance- Pours a crystal clear yellowish orange with a fairly large bright white fluffy head. The cap quickly fizzes away leaving a thin top and thin collar. No lacing.
Smell- A fairly intense whiff of Banana Laffy Taffy is the first thing to greet my nostrils. Doesn’t smell as intensely spicy as some other beers of this type but there are light traces of clove. Does have a bit of a doughy sweetness in the nose and the lightest touch of Dubble Bubble. Lightly tart smelling as well (green apples?).
Taste- Starts a lot like the nose ends with a lightly tart bite of something that reminds me of white wine. The banana and light clove are even lighter than the nose but they are definitely still present. Bready and raw tasting at times with a very light floury sweetness. The beer is extremely aromatic in my mouth - if that makes any sense. The finish is lightly bready with a lingering fruitiness.
Mouthfeel- Solid body with a nice crisp bite that you’d expect from a summer beer such as this.
Drinkability- I really like this beer a lot. It’s super easy drinking and hella flavorful. I wish it was maybe just slightly dryer but a minor whine in the grand scheme of things. Unique for sure, especially out of a can! Lots of good things going on in Brooklyn. Thanks much Adam!

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.

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
