Poured into a Guinness pint glass closet thing available to a weizen glass

A: poured a cloudy yellow very soft in color not to large of a head but it did leave some good lacing

S: The wheat is very clear there are also smells of yeast a slight citrus note and a sweet aroma

T: Wheat malts then sweetness and then a bit of spice some what doughy yet refreshing

M: Again it is refreshing not overly carbonated quite enjoyable to drink and easily drinkable in multitudes

O: This beer is a beer i would come back to again and again not only do i like it for the style it is also a beer that is just enjoyable period i am a fan of sweeter brews and there is just something about this beer that i really like

12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, best before 1/25/2013. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big lemon, banana, clove, wheat, pear, pepper, light bubblegum, earth, grass, floral, and yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance. Taste of lemon, wheat, banana, clove, floral, grass, orange zest, earth, coriander, light bubblegum, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of lemon, banana, wheat clove, light pepper, earth, grass, floral, light bubblegum, and coriander. Nice balance and complexity of flavors; a bit more watered down than I expected; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with nearly zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice wheat ale. Nice amount of hefeweizen flavor complexity and balance; and extremely smooth to drink. Definitely an enjoyable offering.
