Got this one from flyingbison over on TBS, thank you sir!
12 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass.
Pours a cloudy light blonde with an enourmous three finger bright white head. Thick sticky lacing holds on to the sides of the glass throughout, great looking brew for sure. Full aroma of clove, banana, and crisp wheat. Underneath all that is a sweet hoppy citrus; orange and grapefruit, very unique nose on this one. Taste begins with the wheat and spice, but it's a bit dulled down compared to the aroma. Bready malts midway with a dash of cinnamon. Banana and lemon zest in the aftertaste with a slight metallic flavor, doesn't linger much at all. Light to medium body with a somewhat abrassive feel from the aggressive carbonation. Not a bad summer beer, but unfortunately the flavor doesn't live up to the nose. Give me the Imperial Weizen anyday over this one, still worth a shot though.
