A friend brought me a can yesterday night. I was excited to try a new hipster beer. I split the half-liter can with another friend of mine. As I poured it in the glasses, it looked and smelled like a normal wheat beer. (A little cloudy, yellow). I thought perhaps there was not enough carbon because the foam didn't look as crisp as usual, but this may just be because I am used to getting wheat beer on draft.

The taste, however, was hideous. Overpoweringly tart and yeasty, it felt like it had been canned before the fermentation was through. (Not that I ever tried a beer that actually was canned before its time; I am just trying to describe). Neither I, nor my friend, were able to finish our beer, and it went down the sink. I don't remember ever throwing out beer before, and I am 30.

I hope it's just a bad batch of cans. Given the very high reviews here, I can't see how it could taste so disagreeable to me if I tasted the real thing.

Yeah...nooo! This is not a good beer....or I got a bad can. The beer poured into a Weizen glass was cloudy gold with no carbonation. No head no anything. The smell reminded me of medicine and the tast was brutal. The mouthfeel was light with zero carbonation. Overall this a just not good.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light amber color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, light caramelized malts, citrus and some hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus and bananas. Then some bready flavors of wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and very smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, mild kick, very good representation of style, this is a very good beer to pound down for a long time.

A - translucent golden yellow with a big fluffy white head. could be more clear... but that's semantics- you can see through it.

S - Clove, bubblegum (bazooka if you ask me ^^) sweet ripe banana scents.

T - Crisp, full-flavored, a hint of tartness (very light), clove, would have loved some more bubblegum flavors, but it is there along with the sweet banana.

M - med-light bodied, great carbonation... very smooth and easy to drink (all 4 in one sitting)

O - As i sit on a porch swing in rural PA across the street from a church that plays the national anthem everyday & contemplate our recent landing on Mars, I cant help but look down at this beautiful craft beer and think, "I am certainly satisfied"

16 Oz can poured into a tasting snifter

A- Pours slightly hazy golden yellow orange with a one finger white head. Large bubbles and quick dissipation.

S- Wheat and more wheat. Some berries. A little lemon zest. A spicy herbal note. Very crisp smelling. A little funky hops. Interesting smelling beer.

T- A big tartness up front, some bitterness and some sourness as well. Following flavors are wheat mostly. There is a lot of a lime character, maybe some under ripe berries. Sugary yet sour. Kind of grassy. Clean finish.

M- A lot of tart sourness in this beer which for me makes it rather slow to drink. It does have nice carbonation and a pretty good feel and smoothness. Nice finish.

O- I have never really had a beer like this. It does ooze with quality and classic German perfection but I cant say this is my style of choice. Worth a try and its always nice to try a new style.
