12 oz bottle poured into a Weizen glass.
Thanks to BottleCaps80 for this and a bunch of others Backpocket brews in an IP!
A - Generously poured, swirled, and poured, Penny Whistle pours with creamy and tall white head that plateaus to a lumpy pile, coating the glass in rings of lace. The tight foam is fed by strong carbonation visibly rushing through the golden yellow beer.
S - Penny Whistle's aroma is immediately reminiscent of a classic Bavarian hefe with a dash of clove and faint banana yeast ester character but those delicate attributes, along with the soft wheat nose, are overshadowed by a dirty plume of dust kicked into the air.
T - Extreme carbonation prickles the tongue making it hard to taste the beer but, it's soft wheat and grainy pale malt flavor open up bringing just a hint of clove into the mix for an easy drinking flavor profile.
M - Outrageously effervescent carbonation takes a hold of the tongue, masking the wheat's soft body and supple taste for a biting finish that's a little hard to swallow.
O - Backpocket Penny Whistle starts with a nice inviting appearance of a hefe with it's faintly hazed golden color and moves to a classic-starting nose but dryness gets in the way only to be followed by an overly carbonated body that masks it's otherwise nice (and delicate) flavor. This American hefe would make for a great summer beer or one to cleanse the palate between tasting lighter cheeses.
