The beer emerges from the 500ml bottle a beclouded golden yellow with an orange tint, the head behemothic in size, and a brilliant creamy white, as it fades slowly, the resultant lace is a fine veil to obscure the glass. Nose has an earthy aroma, spices also present, coriander and cloves come to mind, light and clean. Start has a sweet grain presence, with the top light to medium in feel. Finish as a benign acidity, the earthy, soapy sweetness continues to the dry aftertaste, a nice drinking beer, but did seem a little thin to me, with the hop presence very subdued, nonetheless, worthy of a sample.

On tap @ Library Alehouse.
A: Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a half-inch thick white head which fades slowly to a thin cap and leaves spots of lace.
N: Estery, cloves, bananas, wheaty, faint bacon.
T: Sweetish malts balanced well with estery fruits, bananas, cloves, with a mild ABV heat and a nice woodyness.
M: Medium body and semi-medium carbonation. Fruity, estery and wheaty finish.
O: Hard to describe how intricate this beer is. Almost a cognac-like thing happening which is probably from a magical combination of the wheat and malts. An interesting "big" weizen. Again, why have I not tried this before. Really liked. Give it a try.
