look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2
Poured from bottle into a weizen glass. Best by Aug. 2011 notched on label.
A: Slightly cloudy and golden with moderate carbonation. Decent foamy head that mostly dissipates and leaves very little lacing.
S: Peppery grains of paradise with a lot of malt and wheat.
T: Wheat with lemon and sour cherry. An unexpected amount of tartness. More of a grassy backbone than malt or wheat. No hops presence to speak of. Peppery notes from the grains of paradise.
M: Light bodied with a pucker factor from the tartness. Leaves the mouth dry without any of the pleasantries of hops.
O: A below average American Pale Wheat Ale and overall a beer I simply don't enjoy. I won't be trying this again.
Serving type: bottle
