look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12oz bottle, weizen glass. thanks to vladieu2 for the opportunity!
a - pours a cloudy goldenrod shade with a finger or so of dense, foamy, bright white head. retention is good, calming to a thin cap and lasting for the rest of the glass. leaves thick chunks of lacing in the glass as well.
s - standard clove/banana with additional tart funky notes. lemon, coriander.
t - light cereal grain malt character, slightly toasty. notes of spice and lemon, with a light, funky bitterness for balance. finishes spicy and slightly sticky.
m - medium body with adequate carbonation. finer co2 profile but still feels a bit prickly on the tongue.
o - a solid beer overall and enjoyable, especially on this unseasonably warm march evening. maybe lacking the depth and complexity of some of it's european counterparts. not a huge wheat beer fan but i'd certainly pick up more of this if allagash didn't pull out of michigan.

A - poured a very pale straw, very light color. Sight haze. Head was massive frothy large bubbled 2 fingers, dissipated to a nice soapy froth, although was always lively did not leave much lacing.
S - pungent banana and fruity yeast Esthers dominate the nose. Slight citrus and herbal notes follow, coriander, anise, and clove... Tons of fresh breadyness round out the nose, smells fresh and inviting.
T - I feel the taste follows the nose exactly, no surprises here... Tons of fruityness from the yeast with lots of banana, herbal notes prevalent with a good amount of citrusy coriander, still getting a slight licorice-esque anise and some clove. This taste is supported by a great bready biscuity wheat malt that is crisp and refreshing. Finishes with a clean citrusy bitter.
M - great mouthfeel, very refreshing. Crisp and dry with a good amount of body to the mouthfeel from the wheat.
O - one of the beers that got me into craft back in the day, over the years this hasn't changed and is still just as good today. Overall all just a perfect example of the style to me. Looks great, smells and tastes phenomenal and is really crisp and thirst quenching.
