Quite good. Sweet and banana bready, with a tingly spice-and-carbonation bite in the back end.

A: Pours a slightly hazy reddish deep amber in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and hints of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy tan head that reduces to a medium to large sized patch of medium thick film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of clove, banana, and wheat.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of wheat and slightly toasted wheat That is followed by a hint of light fruit (apple) sweetness and light flavors of banana + clove. Hints of something metallic are present in the finish. No hops or bitterness is perceptible.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: This beer lacks a lot of the complexity that I have come to expect for the style, though I guess I should have tempered by expectations based on the pretty low price point for the beer (less than $1 for a single). Easy to drink but not interesting enough to grab again.

12oz bottle into weizen glass.

Pours a murky amber brown with a foamy off white head with moderate retention.

Light notes of banana, wheaty, bready malt backbone.

Easy drinking, tasty dunkelweizen.
