look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the tap into a weizen glass at the Hengshan Rd. location.

A: Very "amber" in an almost unsettling way. tomato juice red when held to light. Cloudy with some strange neon orange notes. Unnatural looking. Head stuck around for about 1 minute - it was off white and thick.

S: Slightly spicy and citric with some bread and fruit. Had to dig a bit but good.

T: Very smooth with lots of spices. Bubble gum and bread and clove all over. Classic taste with lots of spice and bready malt. Yeasty in the finish with a nice lingering clovey spice note.

Overall, an ok dark weizenbier. The look is very odd and unnatural, but aside from that, it's a tasty and pretty good beer.
