Best by December 2011.

A: Very cloudy, wheaty, vanilla-orange color with a slight head that stayed at least a mild froth on top of the brew throughout the session. A bit dark than a lot of Hefeweizens, but this still looks really nice.

S: Faint coriander, with German wheat in the mix. Not a spice bomb for sure, yet still effective.

T: The wheat totally soften the blow of the potential over-the-top spices. Slight coriander, but not too much at all. Fruity, wheaty, and yummy!

M: Moderate prickle fromt he carbonation, not much sweetness or spiciness, and the linger didn't have that "rotten banana" issue that I commonly associate with this style.

O: Really nice, excellent even. What's with all the low reviews? I'm going to have the balls to rate this one higher...

The beer is cloudy and bright golden with a small white and ample effervescence. The aroma offers banana, sugary candies, fruit esters. Bubble gum and banana flavor. A bit too sweet for my liking. Prickly carbonation with a slight bite in the finish. Overall, a noticeable step behind the leading German examples of the style.

This beer is refreshing. I explored it in a variety pack in April and wondered if it was the left-over of the Valentine special. It seems insignificant at first, but the aftertaste is a perfect blend of sweet and bitter. It reminds me of Cherry Dr. Pepper but not like a thick syrup. It's light and easy to drink all night. It has a flavor that stimulates the pallet and wakes you up with a pleasant vibrancy.
