On tap at Black Raven.

A - Served a very light, clear yellow with a nice foamy cream-colored head. Bits of lacing were left on the glass.

S - Not much here. Some pilsner malt, and subtle spice.

T - Banana, lemon, spices, wheat.

D - Light body and good carbonation.

O - Light, crisp and refreshing. Good summertime beer.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at he Black Raven tap room. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance is a straw gold color and crystal clear, with a small white head.

Smell is a sweet soft fruit aroma. Honeydew melon, and ripe banana.

Tastes like a Bavarian hefe. There is a cloves flavor and a faint banana taste. A very low hop profile on this one.

Mouthfeel is thin and clean. It may be a little watery. There is a bit of a dry finish.

Very drinkable and a good thirst quencher.

Sunthief is a clear golden yellow with a thin head and moderate lacing. There are aromas of honey, and a little wheat with a very tiny hint of clove. A crisp honey taste meets your lips first followed by pilsner malts, light wheat and a subtle hop bittering. A thin but very clean carbonated finish.

This is a very refreshing and tasty beer. The pilsner malts give it a little body and the finish is smooth. Great for a hot day or if you just want something light. I easily drank a 20oz glass before I knew it.

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.
