2.93/5 rDev -10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
12oz bottle poured into a Shock Top weizen glass. Label notched Best before MAY 2012.
Appearance - Hazy gold body. One finger soap suds head with decent retention and stick.
Smell - Reminds me a lot of an MD 20/20. Kind of weird. Faint grainy musk.
Taste - Candy sweetness dominates. You can pick up the grainy musk of the witbier underneath it all, but it seems like it's trying too hard to get your attention. Mild stale musk in the finish. A little too sweet and thick to be refreshing.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Somewhat spritey. Almost sticky. Fluffy.
Overall Drinkability - I'm not sure there's really a good way to make this beer. Having the flavor any thinner would make it seem weak and watery, but having it as strong as it is sort of drowns out the wheat and makes the concoction feel over flavored. There's no good way to balance it. If you don't like
