Misc.: Best by Sept. Sept. 9, 2013
Poured a golden orange clear color with white frothy head that dissipated almost immediately. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. No lacing on the sides, no retention.
Smelled skunky malts from the get-go. That turned into honey, bread, cereal and some caramel. Definitely got better after the initial whiff.
Tasted similar to the nose, only with some citrus notes. Got honey, caramel, sugary sweetness and some faint lemon grass.
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft (below average) carbonation. Abrupt, but crisp and clean finish.
A pretty good beer for the style. Great for the summer.

DATE TASTED: February 22, 2014... GLASSWARE: Weihenstaphaner weizen .. OCCASION: final night to cheer on our winter Olympians... APPEARANCE: copper-gold body with uneven effervescence; thin, off-white head presents no immediate thickness; no tracing = not inviting... AROMA: pungent,, malty; tougher to pick out thee agave--comes across more as a candied apple...PALATE: a bit dry; slight, oily mouthfeel--drinkable but indistinguishable...TASTE: tangy, metallic aftertaste; malty, syrupy sweet; some fruity, lemony wheatgrass too; rather bland, however, like an original Blue Moon that got itself confused at the factory... OVERALL: I feared this review--not interested in slamming tonight--and yet the beer did not repulse as its first summer sampling had--only wet my lips and slightly refreshed my thirst...did the delayed rating weaken its taste? ...
