22oz bomber poured into a weizen glass. Thanks to demcorhip for getting this one for me!
Pours a hazey, unfiltered golden straw colour with a massive full 2 inches of frothy head off a vigorous pour, a bit of fizzy wet lace sticks around a bit after the head recedes. Carbonation is very mellow, and unfortunately after a few sips this beer just ends up looking a bit on the flat side. Aroma is more muted than I expected, but there's some resiny hops. Pine, grapefruit overtop of more typical wheat aromas, bready with some banana, clove, and surprise, bubblegum. Oddly enough as well, a bit of mustiness.
Taste is straight up intriguing, a hearty and full flavoured mix of hops (grapefruit, pine, herbs (medicinal), pepper, and maybe some juniper?) with bready malt with some tasty yeast flavours, bubblegum sweetness with a bit of banana, apple, pear, and clove. Lighter body keeps this really drinkable though, carbonation isn't too obnoxious either, which is nice. Nice balance, full of flavour, and certainly better than most beers I've had in this style.
