Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours hazy amber with a dense pillow of one finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky webs of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of bready wheat, clove, banana, light piney hop bitterness and the mildly toasted grains. Pretty slow to develop, mostly one dimensional.

T - Starts off with some clove and other spiciness quickly being joined by chewy wheat, banana, bubble gum and mild hop bitterness. Finish is chewy, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, chewy feel makes it easy to drink the whole glass.

O - A decent wheat beer. I don't get a ton of the added flavors, pretty much all base flavors. Still a nice beer for the lighter drinkers but I doubt I will get it again, too many other options to choose from.

Without a doubt, this is my least favorite of any of the Pizza Boy beers I have had to date. I feel like I can sum the whole experience up with the fact that it tastes like mediocre homebrew. There is a overlying Belgian character to it, sure. But it's just...boring. And lame. A really poor showing from Pizza Boy. They should burn the recipe to this beer and flush the ashes down a toilet.
