3.49/5 rDev -5.4%
Appearance: 3.25 | Smell: 3.5 | Taste: 3.5 | Mouthfeel: 3.5 | Overall: 3.5
A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with just a few bubbles on the surface that rapidly vanished.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with notes of bananas from the yeast.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the banana-like flavors are stronger and dominate those from the wheat. Some acidic hints are also present.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I enjoyed the banana and wheat flavors in this hefeweizen, but it could could of used a head that lasted more than ten seconds and some more carbonation.
Serving type: bottle

3.58/5 rDev -3%
12 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a one-finger white head. Lacing is a little less than expected.
Aroma: This beer brings a big citrus aroma to the drinker, along with generous amounts of wheat and spices, and some lemon.
Taste: Reading the ad copy, I expected something a little more bombastic than this - I mean, the label references using 1,000 blood oranges or something. It's a nice wheat beer, but it doesn't explode on the palate or anything. Flavors do become a bit more pronounced as it warms.
Mouthfeel: Pretty standard, summery depth.
Overall: Decent wheat beer from this Mass. brewer, which, in my experience, trades in decent beers, but maybe not astounding ones. A nice addition to a mixed summer six, but not a mind-blower.
