4.38/5 rDev +13.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 16oz brown sleek euro style bottle with a drink before date clearly marked.
Appearance: Soft pale hazy yellow with a crown like white lace that floats all the way down.
Smell: Spicy with a mild black pepper aroma with a little melon and banana, from the fruity esters, in the nose also.
Taste: Smooth and crisp with a silky texture and nice carbonation holding this medium bodied brew together. Grain and wheat malt dominate the forefront though a subdued fruit and rounding spicy flavour that leads to a restrained hop bitterness. An underlying sweetness flows from start to finish with a bready yeasty flavour tagging along.
Notes: Top notch for the style, a must buy for all wheat beer lovers. Balanced to a T and goes down quicker than water. Add a slice of lemon to break in the novice beer drinker.

At first i was a little disappointed in this one. Poured super chunky with lots of little floaties. As a homebrewer I am used to sediment, but this was excessive and crossed into unappetising. The head disappeared within 2-3 seconds. Unfiltered, it settled quikly to a hazy gold that helped improve initial reactions. Nice fresh and clear aroma of banannas, but little if any hops odors. Mouthfeel is mild..slight carbonation tingle. Taste is citrus, not overly so, but that is about it. No malt, no bitter hops, some yeast flavors. Mild, just not exceptional. It got better once it settled and halfway throught the glass i finaly got a clear taste, but nothing really stands out about this beer. Would go decent with chinese, especially washing down hot mustard or extra spicy general tsaos chicken... other than that, i would try something else next time. Maybe i got a bad or srale/old batch? Will check the date and if so try again.
