look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours a huge, slightly creamy off-white head. Nice amber color and fairly clear for an unfiltered wheat beer.
Aroma is sweet and slightly fruity. Perhaps a bit of plum. A bit of alcohol as it warms. Fairly clean overall for such a strong beer.
Slightly fruity and sweet flavor up front, but somewhat bland. A bit bready with the wheat. Dries out a bit in the finish, with some alcohol evident near the end. Sufficiently attenuated/hopped that it isn't overly sweet.
Med-full body, and moderate carbonation. A twinge of alcohol warming, but the alcohol character isn't overpowering in the mouthfeel. Overall a very pleasant palate sensation - carbonation isn't as overpowering as in a Weizen, and not overly heavy or warming for a strong beer.
An awfully clean 8.7% beer - goes down smoothly enough that it isn't a sipping beer. Fortunately or unfortunately, I bought just a single, 12 oz bottle of this stuff. It would be too easy to have another.
