Coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, BB date unknown, served chilled in Tripel Karmeliet’s stemmed tulip-shaped sniffer. Notes: the beer label calls this beer an "American Hopped Weizen".

A: pours a murky, dim amber colour, coming with a light off-white foamy head and fairly quiet carbonation.
S: nice hop aroma of peaches, citrus and flowery notes combine seamlessly with the less pronounced but equally pleasant banana-ish, apple-ish and green mango-ish esters. Given a good swirl, a sharper tinge of spicy esters comes to the surface, complementing the otherwise mainly fruity and hoppy theme. Malts are relatively mild, compared with the hops and fruit esters, but still provide enough weight in the background.
T: quietly effervescent and fairly… neutral in taste with a belated leather-ish note, then the spicy esters and a wave of rough-textured hop bitterness develop fast to dominate the palate, leaving a dry and fairly chewy aftertaste in the end.
M&O: the mouthfeel remains refreshing due to the mild effervescence, the body is generally medium and not thin, while the flavour profile is somewhat influenced by the supposedly hungry yeasts which almost consumed all possible sugar and leave very little malty weight and flavour on the palate, which is rendered even more obvious when the spicy esters and hop bitterness both come in full strength. All in all, this is a somewhat unbalanced take on the hybrid concept of a hoppy & bitter weizen, but one definitely the brewery can improve.

Bottle. Clear golden with huge white, semi-densed head. Really good head retention. Good lacing. Good hop aroma - citrus, some bananas in the background, also quite good floral notes noticable. The taste is medium bitter, unfortunately the hops (herbal, grassy) take over rest and you can fell too much bitterness. Light body, thin texture, high carbonation. Finish is dry and bitter.
