Been working my way through a six pack of this stuff, and I have to say it's just growing and growing on me... Smutty Summer Weizen comes in a real unappealing bottle, pink and blue, but whatever, toss the bottle and get this into a glass!

A. Served cold, it's chill-hazed and cloudy, but let it warm and it'll clear right up to a bubbly pale straw color with a fine white head that leaves lace where it wills.

S. Cold, not much. Warmed up to warmer than you'd usually drink a wheat beer opens it up and you get some pale grain, soft lemon-citrus, spice, and barely roasted malt. Not a great deal, of anything, however. The weakest part of this beer.

T. Odd, yet good. This is a wheaty, dry, bitter pale brew but the bitterness seems to come from spice (chamomile) and not hops. There are some earthy, bittering hops in there, but there's barely any malt sweetness to balance out, so it ends up being a dry, herbal and citrus thing. I suppose you could call it tea like and mildly astringent. Unsettling at first, but by the end of the pint you're reaching for another.

M / D. Soft yet full carbonation, dry and medium-light bodied, this is pretty easy to put back if the bitterness doesn't offend you. I can easily do two or more of these...

Smutty Summer Weizen is a weird beer, sure, but it's good and unusual and quite refreshing on this humid August night. I'll buy more.
