Picked this beer up on a recent trip to Virginia. Recommended on the front of the bottle, "...pour half, swirl to rouse the yeast, pour the rest and enjoy!"
A: Beer pours a light copper color. Pretty surprised to get no head on it despite the fairly aggressive pour. I was expected a nice foamy head on it being a Weiss beer.
S: Smell is what you'd expect from the style. Somewhat bland but inviting.
T: Now that is good. Very fresh tasting, with a nice bready yeastiness to it. I get a little bit of citrus, slight lemon, full creaminess from the wheat.
MF: Again, real good. Nice carb. Very easy drinking. Creamy yet crisp. Full bodied, yet so light.
O: I'm really digging this beer and everything Blue Mountain is throwing at me with this brew. I really dig the labeling, the suggestion and description on the front of the bottle, the Plato, IBUs and ABV, the easy to read "enjoy by" date on the label. And the beer lives up to what they claim it to be, "bottled summer sun". How can you not be a fan of this brewery and their beers?

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Classic large soapy and very big white rocking Hefe making head out of the bottle. Huge soapy retention that just doesn't go anywhere. A bit of a dark amber orange and slightly dull yellow body, considerably darker than most but not very clear, but with matching rising plentiful carbonation. Pretty solid.

Nose is real nice to match. Some mild clove spice, chewy wheat malt, and there's an interesting estery note to this that is more like cherry or red fruit, than the classic bubblegum and banana. Really nice I dig this not sure where this is going.

Palate seems to match the cherry fruit quality from the nose. Malt density is lacking with a bit of a watery finish, but some of the cherry fruit manages to perkelate in the mid palate. Finish is also a bit metallic and has a bit of a tin aftertaste. Warmth gives a bit more clove and classic hefe character, with some subdued bitterness.

It's not bad, but the metallic and tin notes on it are a bit too noticeable and particularly take away my enjoyment of what starts out to be a pretty decent brew.

12 oz bottle into weizen glass. best before 09 2013.

A: pretty hazy for a Kristalweizen. probably because it is a hefeweizen as indicated on the bottle label. orange. frothy white bubbled head. good retention, minimal lacing.

S: the nose starts off with a lot of wheat. a decent amount of banana and clove. the yeast is really making its presence known.

T: the wheat is strong here. really filling, good flavor. fresh. makes for one hell of a chewy body. spicy as well, not black pepper, but more of yeast esters. bitterness is minor and mostly derived from the yeast I suppose. fruity. pears.

M: a zesty carb on a medium body.

D: really tasty summer brew from blue mountain. a well-made hefe is always easy to enjoy and that's exactly what I have got here. well done.
