Review taken summer 2014.

Not a bad take on the style. A good summer session ale for even those used to big complex ales.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, semi-cloudy, golden, amber/straw color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that completely dissolved away into no head what-so-ever.

Aroma: Very wheaty and grassy up front, imparting notes of cereal, clover, honey-suckle, followed by some slight aromas of lemony citrus and lemon peel.

Taste: Very much like the aroma. Grassy and wheaty up front, imparting notes of cereal, clover, honey-suckle, followed by some honey-like sweetness, and finished with some lemony citrus flavors. Quite good.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and pretty smooth as there is not a lot of carbonation. With an ABV of 4.8%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Wow! A weizenbier that I like! Lots of bready, cereal-like flavors, blended beautifully by some honey-like sweetness and some pleasant lemony citrus. There are none of the traditional weizenbier flavors of bubblegum and Band-Aids® which suits me just fine!

Spiced fruit and dirt aroma, banana right up front fades to a slight bitter finish. Surprised at how good this is.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains bananas, wheat, light caramelized malts and touches of hops and citrus.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some sweet flavors of bananas, caramel and citrus come in. The hops presence is very mild but brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent lawnmower beer to pound down for a long time.
