From my tasting notes: The Lagunitas version was a much lighter cloudy orange color. There were lots of bananas and cloves in the aroma and my first taste was amazing. I really love this style. Despite the light color the taste was very full and heavy on the caramel malt, banana, and wheat with lots of complexity that hid its high alcohol content well. I thought this was a fantastic beer and Lagunitas treated the style with respect.

Poured from growler into a Carlsburg Weizen glass.

Murky straw with about a finger of white head.

Honey, straw, wheat and yeast make up the aroma.

A little bit of booze, more bitter than a normal weizen, I guess that’s the bock speaking up.

Crisp and clean, very drinkable. Just a bit of an aftertaste.

Very satisfying, but not an extraordinary weizen.
