About 6oz from a bottle @ Heinen's Smuttynose VS Sierra Nevada smackdown.
Not a cloudy wheat by any measure, this beer is hazy and has a nice small white head atop a golden banana colored body.
Smell is wheat, clove, a touch of ripe banana. Just a touch too muted, this doesn't lure me in.
Taste was more malt focused than I expected. I would have liked it to showcase more of the wheat and yeast and peppery hops. I thought it was good but, like the nose, would have liked to see a bit more.
Mouthfeel was too insubstantial, even though this should be a lighter beer, it came off a touch too light. Still refreshing and nice carbonation.
Drinkability was nice but I like some other APWA's more. I mean, a beer like Gumballhead is the exception, but it has more flavor in one sip that this entire bottle had. I'm not asking for extremity for the sake of extremity, I just want a beer with a touch more flavor.
