Amazing! It tastes exactly like their hefeweizen except it has more alcohol. You can barely tell the difference since it is well hidden. It definately doesn't drink like it's 7.7%. If more stores carried this i would buy it more often.

Taste is, as they say, subjective and this may not be the most beautiful or the best looking beer but the aroma is fantastic and the taste, imho, was/is amazing!

16.9 oz. bottle poured into wheatbeer glass

L: milky yellow with massive fluffy white head of foam, about 2-inches tall with good staying power; no sticking off the head and minimal lacing

S: banana and some slight spices (clove, allspice), a little tart grape/lemon; tartness is definitely there, more lemon than anything else

T: banana and a hint of clove, not overly sweet; peanuts ... just a slight nuttiness; sour grapes; slight hints of alcohol in the taste, but only slight ... a little vodka/rubbing alcohol tingle

F: good carbonation, solid weight

O: very tasty wheat beer that is definitely stronger than the average ... the 7.7% ABV is mostly hidden in the taste, but you can feel it early on; classic wheat beer notes of banana with a little spice in it; the sweetness is very restrained
