Bottled on April 12 2010.
Pours like thick, cloudy, dark amber.
Smells like sweet malt and caramel.
Taste is almost like it smells, sweet up front that fades to the dark wheat citrus flavor and has hints of rye. It has a full mouthfeel beginning to end.
Overall, I'd say this is a ok brew. I got it discounted at the store, and I'm a fan of Great Divide, but I'll stick to their IPAs and stouts.

Damned thing almost exploded as I popped the cap, then literally filled my snifter with the head after roughly an ounce of beer hit the glass. The beer is a medium brown, very rich looking, in color; but all you notice is the huge head of slightly offwhite bubbles. All different sizes, all popping at different times.
Nothing Earth-shattering about the nose, it's not bad, just nothing exceptional. Standard issue banana and clove, with what must be cinnamon giving it more depth. All the usual hefe suspects are kept in line with an aggressive malt bill.
I totally dig the taste. Very malty, but it's got that nice yeasty tang to it and the aforementioned spice (has to be cinnamon) to balance the twang and add a little sweetness.
Medium-bodied, feels thick and creamy as it dances on the tongue. Tangy and sweet, faintly spicy with some heat at the end, mostly from the carbonation.
An extremely easy drinker. No real faults, the lack of smell is a minimal issue in my book. The style hasn't always been high on my list of must haves, but this beer may enter my normal rotation of drinks.
