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.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a wheat beer glass. Pours cloudy orange yellow with a small white head. Smells of wheat, nothing too surprising. Tastes of wheat and very slight orange, nice combination. Beer is heavily carbonated, light bodied, good finish. Overall a slightly above average beer.
