A- Golden yellow, hazy. Some white highlight. White head doesn't retain.
S- Bananas, clove. A bit of booze, actually, and some yeast.
T- Wheaty, grainy. A bit of fruit and yeast. A tad spicy.
M- Carb is more apparent. Smooth and wet though.
O- Decent. I think the CO2 from the draft takes away from Weizens.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
