look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11.2 floz brown owl bottle poured into Weihenstephan weizbier glass.

A - a hazy mild straw yellow, very light and delicate. looks better when held up to a light, becomes slightly more golden then. the head is big and white, slowly dissipates and leaves a nice one finger layer on the top.

S - a slight caramel buzz and some light fruity sweetness lingers int the background.

T - initial taste is of something a slightly bit bitter on the back of the tongue, maybe a bit spicy or as people have suggested that of cloves. the finish has some definite wheaty notes come through and the clove. the after taste is most certainly sweet and grainy, a pleasant finish to an odd little beer.

MF&D - the feel is good, great amount of carbonation, but this is only here to make up for the lack of thickness, the body is quite light in my opinion. but this does let one drink quite unencumbered, and despite not really liking the beer all to much, I can see myself having another.

Nice yellow gold color with a small to medium size head. Nice clean smelling and tasting beer. Not a whole lot of body. You can smell and taste the citrus and other spices. The thing that really stands out for me was the spiciness at the finish. It's a good clean beer that is very refreshing.

Pours clear, a bit odd for a hefe. Where's the little yeasty bits? Anyway, a dark yellow in color with an explosion of white foam that nearly burst out of the glass. It settles to 1/2" relatively quickly and remains a thick film forever, leaving decent lace.
Smell is sweet, malty, wheat, citrus, spices. All balanced nicely, very nicely indeed.
Taste is a copy of the smell. Malt, a slightly syrupy sweetness, wheat, citrus, spice and some alcohol. Great balance.
Warming, medium plus body, light effervescence. Smooth, too. If the yeast had shown up in the glass, this would be one of the best wheats ever.
