Hefeweizen abused with hops. What happened to this Christmas ale? Drain-pour.

I was expecting so much more from this brew.
I love Victory products, generally.
This winter wheat beer is - well...wierd!
The color is really light, the flavor is a wine-cooler-ish.
I was looking for a break from the stouts and the porters - but this was a disappointment.

Wheat beer all the way, but the spices do nothing to enhance the bland nature of the beer.

12 oz bottle with a BB date stamp of March 2015.

A gentle pour still created an oversized head that came over the top even though nearly half of the beer remained in the bottle.

The aroma is spicy and yeasty with hints of bananas and more than a hint of cloves, as well as some less pleasant notes. The flavor is similar but more fruity with a clear citrus aspect. Spicy aftertaste. Poor balance.

O: contaminated batch? Perhaps, but even giving this some benefit of the doubt it's certainly among the poorest offerings from Victory. Probably a DNF.

Light spicy wheat. Not my thing.
