Appearance - Pours clear and golden, with a white finger width head. Fair retention. Lacing is spotty at best, with poor stick.
Smell - Smells... like an adjunct lager. Odd. Grainy and sweet.
Taste - Light. Grains and sweetness mostly, with a bit of wheat poking through mid-taste. Sweetness from the agave can be tasted throughout, but really shows most in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with a crisp bite from the carbonation. Semi-dry finish.
Overall - Not much to this brew; I think it's ambition is greater than the end result. Drinks closer to an adjunct lager than a pale wheat ale. I wouldn't buy this again, but I'd accept if offered.

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? ...
