3.65/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: BevMo in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $14.99 for a BevMo variety 8-pack (w/ BevMo card)
Purchased: Dec. 31, 2013
Consumed: Jan. 9, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a brownish murky color with two fingers of khaki tan head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good amount of circular foamy lacing along the sides. Good retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled peach, raspberry, grape juice, blueberry honey and dark apples. Reminded me a bit of the Quaker oatmeal variety pack that I used to mix and match when I was younger.

Tasted more like a Dunkelweizen than the smell. Got peach, blueberry, grape juice, juicy apple and maple pecans.

Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, smooth finish.

Not what I was expecting, but I enjoyed this beer. I may have overrated it a bit, but I would have it again for sure.
