look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a cloudy meduim red-brown color with a voluminous pale sand-colored head of foam. Complex patterns of lacing inside the tall weisse glass as the head subsided. The note is full of fruity and spicy esthers - what you'd expect for the style with cloves, banana, and sweet malts dominating the nose. This beer smells ... dare I say ... like a German dark weisse bier, not an A-B clone of one. The palate fails to impress as much, but isn't bad. You get the sweetness from the dark malt right away with some phenolic characteristics coming through subtlely. A good flavor profile, but somehow a little disjointed. I don't get the wheat malt as strongly as I'd like here. The mouth feel is quite thin, save for the presence of quite a bit of residual yeast in the bottle. This helps, of course, but the beer still comes across just a little thinner than I'd like. Good carbonation and the finish is dry with a slight spiciness lingering in the mouth. All in all, a nice attempt at the style, but nothing groundbreaking here except for the fact that this beer is brewed my Anheuser-Busch. Could use a touch more wheat in the grain bill, perhaps, along with a slightly fuller mouth feel. Otherwise, not too shabby at all. The R&D department at A-B is doing some good stuff ... let's see if the die-hard craft beer world can accept these faux-crafts as legit.
