On-tap 3/15/2013 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a weizen glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is very faint but contains caramelized malts, some hops and some citrus.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some mildly sweet flavors of caramel and citrus come in. The hops presence is decent in strength, distinctly German and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to pound down for a very long time.

Serving type: on-tap

Having on draft at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a small layer. It is a thick looking golden straw yellow that looks similar to their hefeweizen. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: cloves, bready malts, bananas, and some sweet malts.

Taste: Same as above with mild hoppy flavor and bitterness to the beer. Its just a hoppier version of their hefeweizen. Picking up a little citrus and pine in there. Interesting.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, low to medium carbonation, a little chewy, and a little hop bitterness too.

Overall: This beer should be categorized as a hefeweizen, but this one is hoppier than their normal version. Still very tasty.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap @ the Blue Monk in Buffalo

The beer pours a hazy golden yellow with 1/2 an inch of a fluffy white head that fades quickly and laces. The nose is a sweet honey forward, wheat/corn, yeast, hops (slightly citrusy), and a hint of bubble gum. The taste presents much the same with malty/honey sweetness upfront that becomes more of a banana bread/ripe pear sweetness as it warms, and is carried on by a residual citrusy sweetness...still no true hop presence. It's light-medium bodied, effervescent, easy drinking, slightly yeasty, obviously sweet, sort-of hoppy, but nothing I'd classify as being "bitter." This is a slight push towards being a hoppy lager, but I'm unimpressed by the attempt.
