look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bottle to a weizen glass. Bottled 1/31/2012.
A: Cloudy from the yeast and straw to golden across the glass. Light, white, sudsy head without the best lacing/retention.
S: Lacking in the nose. Heavy yeast with wheat and some clove. Not picking up the phenols like I do in the best hefeweizens. A slight lemony note as well.
T: Yeast forward with wheat following, then a bright lemon/tangerine citrus note. A nice citrus presence but missing out on some of the other fun phenol flavors.
M: High yeast content yields a nice bit of creaminess, though this is still a refreshing beer for a hot day. Nicely done.
O: I was a bit disappointed with this offering from SN, and I generally really like their beer. It's not bad, but isn't really great in any respect other than mouthfeel.
Serving type: bottle
