4.35/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured on tap into a 20 oz. weizen glass.
A - Pour is a warm, cloudy golden-blonde with a 1.5-finger head dissipating to 1/2-finger, good effervescence.
S - Fruity and spicy with the signature strong smell of yeast and bananas, more typical of a Belgian white in my opinion. Traces of flowery hops.
T - Just as good as the smell, but tastes like a German heffeweissen whereas it smells more like a Belgian. Maybe this was me, but I really thought that was the case. Sweet malts and yeast with milder fruit (more citrusy) and spice than the smell suggests, lingering sweet, citrus and fruity finish fades to a slightly bitter aftertaste, but not at all unpleasant.
M - Light and slightly creamy, moderate carbonation keeps it feeling lively.
D - Very refreshing, makes a great summer beer or to cool your palate after a savory meal.
This was a surprisingly refreshing beer with great flavor, an all around well-rounded German wheat. I swear it's not my imagination that this beer smelled Belgian but tasted German...in this case the identity crisis works well.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a cloudy yellow with shades of gold. Forms a very nice head which very slowly dissipates leaving some very nice lacing.
Very nice mixture of wheat and citrus, lemon stands out.
Well balanced flavours of wheat and lemon. Incredibly easy drinking and flavourful.
Smooth bordering on creamy, medium carbonation with a very smooth finish.
Very nice for a lighter beer, complex while very enjoyable and refreshing.
