1655th Review on BA
Bottle to Weizen glass
12oz

Thanks to my co-worker Kathleen for bringing this back from MI during Thanksgiving.

App- When this poured out it almost filled the entire glass with foam. It was a good bright orange with some deep ambers in it. A bit too much head. I spot infection early. Just not a good sign.

Smell- Its was a bit too citrusy. I said on instagram. Feremented orange juice. Wasnt very aromatic. Prickly, zesty and a bit unique. Dont know how to call it. Musty, hay? Still not sure.

Taste- Okay. Ill call it now. Infection. Strangely feremented. Crazy sour flavor with malty undertones. Bitter and thick malts.

Mouth- Light bodied & high carbed. Residual orange fermentation.

Drink- Drank 1/2. Poured rest. Couldnt do it. Oh well.

This beer is the brightness and clarity as well as color of polished gold. The pour produces a soapy, creamy head that's a dazzling pure white. It's no less than one finger after it's settled. It develops a craggy consistency and continues to fall very slowly while leaving plentiful and thick spotting.
The aroma is perfumey and has that not-quite-sulfuric note particular to the Helles lager strongly. It's built on a dry malts base, and there are some fruity esters to the alcohol too. A somewhat metallic note begins to develop, but slowly.
The taste adds a sweetness almost like honey, but a metallic note becomes too strong and there's a very prevalent tang that isn't pleasant. I don't know what happened between the aroma and the flavor, but it fell off badly.
This light-bodied beer seems like it might have depth, but it's too fizzy and too bitingly spritzy to feel much of anything else for awhile. The effervescence takes a little time to calm down.

2.9/5  rDev -14.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

undated 12oz poured into a stange.

a - pours a hazy golden color with a thin cap of white foam. head calms quickly to a film and leaves no lacing behind.

s - sharp fruity notes like sour cherry or maybe white grape juice, biscuits and honey.

t - acidic tartness and faint hop spiciness backed by a bready malt base. has a honey like sweetness and finishes with a moderate earthy bitterness. kind of an odd combination of flavors.

m - lighter in body but a coarse, fizzy co2 profile and strong acidic bite keep this from feeling good in the mouth.

o - not very enjoyable at all. seems to hit most of the style points noted in other examples, but if i didn't know better i'd say i was drinking a spiced cider, or that maybe this is in the early stages of infection. i would possibly try this on tap if i came across it, but i won't be purchasing bottles again.

3.83/5  rDev +13.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a clear, dark golden color with an inch thick, white head that dissipates instantly. Leaves a very nice lacing behind.

Smell - Smells pretty musty.. it must be the hops used. I also smell a light sweetness like apple cider. Can't really detect anything else, other than grains.

Taste - Quite sweet, with a cider-like flavor. The hops are pretty strong with a mild spiciness. Nice malts, grains, a bready feel, and somewhat floral. There's not really any bitterness to speak of.

Mouthfeel - Light body with high carbonation.

Overall - It's interesting to try a new style. This is a little too spicy for me to drink on with my acid reflux, but it's good.
Picked this up in Bay City, MI.
