Picked up locally, enjoyed from a Weizen glass?

a - brew poured a murky yellow with an orange core and a few fingers of foamy head that evaporated almost instantly.

s - smells like a hefe. Orange peel and wheat with some sweetness.

t - big orange flavor tamed back only with wheaty sweetness and a pinch of earthy grassiness. Some banana in the mix as well to round it out. Not a huge fan of this style but this is quite tasty.

m - a bit more full bodied than I expected. Good carbonation. A little fizzy but appropriate for the style.

o - overall a nice rich and flavorful hefe that leads with oranges and nice sweetness. Great for this summery weather. One of the better hefes that I have had. Not grossly sweet.

Picked up a random can of this at Russel's in Amherst. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice hazy dark straw with a nice one finger white head that fades to leave spotty clouding and a nice foamy halo.

S - Nice light banana esters and wheat, some slight bubblegum. Very slight lemons and grains.

T - Wow, is this banana-y. Lots and lots of bananas, some light lemon, and slight grain with good yeast. The citrus is a nice touch but that banana comes back in the finish and lingers in the aftertaste.

M - Mouthfeel is really, really nice for a kristalweizen. Perfect amount of carbonation, super easy drinking. I guess my only nick would be its almost slightly too sweet and over ripe banana. Somewhat distracting.

O - Overall, I really, really enjoyed this beer from Sixpoint. I've liked pretty much every single can that my stores have been supplied with. A great summer beer full of freshing flavours. Well worth picking up a can.

A - straw/golden color that pours quite opaque for a Kristalweizen. Soft, small head.

S - Vibrant, orange and a little bit of mustard? Also a little musty barnyard as well

T- Really well balanced and smooth, peppery, light and refreshing.

M- Lots of yummy dextrins with a light smooth finish

O- I really enjoyed this beer, I had it after a long weekend on Sunday evening outside. Really well done
