I had this on-tap in a pint glass at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: medium yellow hue with a very light haze and a somewhat lazy effervescence. Head is a thin layer of white foam. Not too bad!

Smell: lightly wheaty with just a hint of something piquant -- sour maybe. Not particularly strong in any case, though.

Taste: rather grainy right up front with a little bit of a sharpness around the edges; a refreshing wheaty character runs all the way through. Reminds me a lot more of an American-style pale wheat ale than a German weizen. Not bad, but not particularly exciting.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess for the style. Nothing to complain about here.

Overall: quite refreshing indeed. While the graininess is just a tad harsh up front, the wheaty character really smooths out the finish. Quite drinkable, but otherwise unremarkable.

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a light, clear straw amber with a fine half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt, wheat, light lemon and a hint of banana. Flavor is wheat, mild biscuit malt, light lemon and banana with a biscuit wheat finish. Starts slightly sweet, finishes semi-dry. Light bodied, but peppery carbonation creates a pleasant mouth feel. A nice weizen style beer that's great to have fresh from a brewery. I lean more towards unfiltered wheat beers, but this has lots of wheat flavor and nicely subtle citrus and fruit flavors. Flavor is a bit on the light side, but a refreshing light wheat beer I will revisit again.
