I do enjoy Hefe's and Pale Wheat Ale's so I may be a tad biased.

A: An extremely cloudy golden straw color. Minimal head. A decent amount of lacing.

S: Heavy banana smell, with some hints of coriander or clove.

T: Lemon, wheat, banana and spice all combed together. The banana hits first and the aftertaste is not overwhelmingly spicy but it is there.

M: Really crisp and smooth. Very light bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation

D: I could drink this type of beer frequently. It is a very well rounded American Wheat.

I've been delinquent on my reviews....I'm going LIFO now, unfortunately.

A - Nicely clouded, it's good to see an American Pale Wheat that hasn't been filtered to hell. About as much foam as you'd expect.

S - Some nice wheat bread, a little of that musty wheat aroma. No clove or banana, but no points deducted as this is not trying to be a hefeweizen.

T - Tasty. I didn't smell any banana, but I actually taste some. Lot of fresh, light wheat with just a little alcohol nip.

F - Feel is a step above most American Pale Wheats, due to it being unfiltered. Has a slightly more creamy, robust feel than most, without becoming heavy.

D - This is a very good hot weather beer, just what the doctor ordered. A little underrated, I am a fan of this beer.

First off, I’m not sure sweaty should ever be used to describe something you are planning to consume. That being said, it does make for a rhyming name. This beer poured a bright, hazy yellow. The head is white and sparse. The smell is wheaty, the taste follows suit: wheaty, and banana-like. Very refreshing and reminds me of a hefeweizen. What is the difference a wheat and a hefeweizen anyway?

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Nonic Pint

Look: The beer appeared a very cloudy golden and cleared up as it warmed. Even after a very hard pour there was very little head to speak of and minimal lacing throughout.

Smell: The aroma was quite simple but very welcoming. Up front I got the essence of wheat which was followed up with sharp whiffs of lemon and peppery spice.

Taste: Much like the aroma the wheat came right to the front of this flavor. It is a big wheat taste that works very well with the other flavors. Then the citrus and peppery spice creep up on you leaving the finish very dry and refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Very dry with a heavier body than I was expecting given the style and color.

Drinkability: Very drinkable! I just wish I had this on a warm summer afternoon by the grill instead of holed up in my house watching snow fall outside. I will certanly revisit this one once the spring hits.
