P: 12oz can into a perfect pint glass.

A: The beer pours a cloudy golden yellow with a creamy white head. Lacing is sparse.

S: There's a hint of spicy wheat aroma, in the realm of clove with some tropical fruit.

T: Malty grain with a tropical fruit finish. Low bitterness with no apparent hop flavors. Flavors have a sharp cut off with no lingering aftertaste. The balance of sweet and bitter is pretty good but the overall flavors are underwhelming.

M: On the thin side. Carbonation is low to moderate and the bubbles are tiny. Unimpressive for a wheat beer.

O: Not a bad beer but you'll forget about it rather quickly. It's just too light in terms of flavor and body to leave any sort of impression. There are a number of other wheat beers I'd rather drink than this one.

Medium sized couple fingers white to off white head settles into a decent lacing above a cloudy pale yellowish golden colored beer.

Wheat, light spices, malted grains, and I think oranges aroma.

Washed out grain malt taste with some light fruit, oranges, and even lighter spices.

A lightly dryish aftertaste on this light bodied beer.

A very light tasting beer, not much to write home about unless you need a lighter beer to cool off with after running a marathon or something.

LOOK: Cloudy yellow with a huge soapy head. The can slightly gushed upon opening.

SMELL: Wheat, clove, bread, must and a touch of fruit.

TASTE: Dry wheat, crackery like yeast and some fruit notes from the pineapple. Solid hop bitterness keeping sweetness in check with an herbal, earthy bite.

FEEL: Medium bodied with a high level of carbonation.

OVERALL: A nice simple wheat with a pretty good balance.

Pours amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows pineapple, baked apples with accompanying cloves and cinnamon, and some doughy wheat. Strong resemblance to apple pie...
Some more soft pineapple juice as a flavour, along with more doughy notes and spices. Seems lacking somewhat though.
Carbonation is much too high and the body feels a bit watery.

From a can to a weizen glass. Canned 6/29/11 I guess that's why it's only 6.99/6pack, ha.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golen orange. Huge three finger white pillowy head rises above the edge of my glass. Retention never seems to die out and plenty of sticky lacing. Lots of co2 bubbles rising to the top of the glass.

Aroma: Wheat and a big blast of pineapple, Slightly metallic. Kinda smells like a wine cooler.

Taste: Bready wheat dances with nice pineapple fruitiness. Pineapple! It's actually quite good. It walks a little on the sweet side but it's not overpowering. It's also not something I'm going to drink a ton of. I like that it has some full flavors, Even some banana and bubblegum. Makes me think of a hefe with pineapple added.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Would be drinkable any time of year but I suppose best suited for summer. Carbonation is a low and smooth. Finishes dry.

A lot of wheats can be boring, this one offers a unique flavor and wasn't bad at all considering how old it is.
