This beer is a Kristallweizen, I'm not sure if it's the same beer as the other Sound example listed here, but it seems likely.

Served in straight pint glass. poured a bright, clean, clear golden-yellow color with over a half-inch of white head that dissipated very quickly and left minimal lacing.

While there was the expected wheat and yeast aromas, they completely overwhelmed by a strong ham scent. Yup, ham. There was also a bit of a smoky note as well. On the tongue, again, the expected wheat played a very minor role, this time due to an almost overpoweringly strong presence of bubblegum, banana and clove. While those features were to be expected, I don't think they should be so strong as to hide the base grain and yeast aspects of the beer.

The body was good, clean, dry and refreshing. Drinkability will depend on your tolerance of bubblegum, banana and clove. Overall a nice brew that's worth a shot if you see it, but it's a bit odd, due to the smoky ham aroma and strong bubblegum flavor.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured a glowing yellowish orange color with a nice whote cap, bubbles and lacing

S: Big wheat and a little citrus. Pretty straightforward.

T: Big wheat presence upfront, a heavy wheat at that. Some light clove with big fruity citrus botes on this

M: Medium bodied, heavier on the palate than I expected

O: Tasty, drinkable and robust version of a lighter beer but tasty and well done

Serving type: on-tap
