Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: maxpower on 02-22-2003

Fermented with a Belgian ale yeast, this blend of barley & wheat malts yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices. Deliberately brewed to retain a cloudy appearance.

Not a real fan of wheat beers. Good as wheat beers go.

12 oz bottle born 11/13/14 poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Gold, cloudy and murky. Half finger head that moves to a 2 mm lace.

S - A brief thought of skunk, replaced by grains, banana, clove, and spices.

T- Banana, clove, spice, fruits. Malt on the finish.

M - Fairly light and crisp, carbonation medium, not overly sharp.

O - Personally, I dont partake in a lot of white/wheat ales, but this one is enjoyable and seems above average for the style.

Light yellow pour without much head. Tastes very similar to blue moon or shock top. Easy to drink, pretty good seasonal. Not strong at 5% and not a particularly mind blowing beer but solid overall.
