First of all, the weather was sunny and warm and perfect for the style when I had this beer yesterday. I had also just listened to Dr. Charles Bamforth on Beer Smith radio. I was more than ready to drink great beer and wax philosophically about it.

Appearance: Standard side pour into a .5l Weizen glass makes a large, fluffy white pillow that lasts for a good long time. Lovely cathedral window type lacing. Golden and effervescent.

Aroma: Amazing! Crisp, slight skunky/grassy/ hoppy, pilsner malt, spices/peppery, tropical banana, so much more!

Flavor: Follows the nose with Pilsner malt, spice/peppery notes add depth with complex fruity, banana, citrusy, vanilla to add yet another layer before a medium-dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Light body, with a slight tingle/sting from the carbonation. Alcohol is very well hidden. Crisp, but not overly so. The carbonation is too high to quaff this beer and that’s a good thing.

Opinion: Amazing! Similar to Tank 7… Maybe better? I was worried a little because of all the adjuncts (coriander, ginger, orange peel), but the balance is perfect. The medley is hard to detect and many sips are necessary to fully appraise. The individual flavors are elusive and fleeting. Buy it again? Oh yesss, a more thorough examination is needed.
