This is one of three new beers that I know of from these guys, the other two being Saison and Belgica. I like the blurb on the side of the bottle telling the drinker not to add any lemon to this. Decadent pour reveals a cloudy dark red, with a large white head. Musty smells of banana, brown bread and bubblegum come through in the aroma. Overall the smell is juicy. Taste is still incredibly juicy, but with a beautiful wheat backbone. Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth, with just the right amount of carbonation and flavor to make it complex, yet approachable. This is an easy drinker, but it deserves to be sipped. A great beer here from Great Divide that is as good, if not better than many of the great German examples. Hopefully this is a year round offering. Not to be missed for wheat beer lovers.

4.28/5  rDev +17.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
