look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Ingredients: Malt (wheat 55%, barley 45%), hopps.
This is a toned-down weizen with a fine white head, beautiful lace, cloudy orange/gold color and sour/floral aroma. Simple pleasant flavor which was lacking in fruit and spices typical of style were muttled. Super-fine bubbles, however carbonation weaker than what I had hoped for.
Although this is a review for the can, I have had the bottle and would swear that they bottle is different and far superior.

The beer comes in a hazy golden yellow color.
The aroma has a bit of funky grain and fruit, but generally wheat, banana, a bit of lemon, and pepper.
The flavor follows with a bit of that funky/skunky off banana, citrus, lemon flavor. There's a bit of sweet wheat to clean it up, but with a bit more of off flavors on the finish.

A - Popped the top of the pretty blue bottle. Pours a nice evenly cloudy lemon honey yellow. Some continued carbonation that lasted several min. The head is a very low, clumpy, eggshell-white experience. LAcing was present but not remarkable.
S - Instantly linseed and lemon peel smells entered the room when the cap was popped. Some honey-comb sweet waxy smells and a bit of powdered sugar.
T - Sour, like lemon pudding that someone forgot to put sugar in. Not overly hoppy. But not enough malty texture either. Pretty much a one flavor experience.
M - Reasonably smooth. A tiny trickle of carbonation eases down the throat just like the lacing in the glass.
D - Overall a fine drinkable example of this style. Not as filling as some hefeweizens, and it's a bit sour, but hops are balanced nicely.
