Poured from a 330 mL. capped bottle (Best Before End 05-2012) into a weizen glass.
A moderate pour yields a fluffy off-white head that takes up nearly half the glass. After a few minutes, the head slowly fades to about a 1-finger coating that lasts to the last drop. The body is a cloudy straw gold with carbonation bubbles streaming upward from nearly every conceivable portion of liquid. Some thick lacing can be seen sticking sporadically to the glass in soapy clumps.
Wheat is definitely the primary component of this nose with just a touch of citrus in the background. Notes of lemon peel and orange rind are present with just a bit of green banana. The lack of banana in the nose is a little off-putting.
Like the nose, the initial taste is primarily wheat with just a touch of citrus peel. Almost no banana can be found and certainly no bubblegum. As the beer is swallowed, a banana cream flavor comes out a bit and is soon met by more grainy wheat flavors. The oily citrus flavors cling to the crevaces of the mouth and last the entirety of each sip. A wheat, chalky green banana flavor persists as a light aftertaste between sips.
The body is light and easy-drinking with a good amount of meatiness that gives this beer a smooth mouthfeel. The carbonation is good and fizzy (as would be expected) and creates a nice foamy but satisfying swallow.

Picked this up in Atlantic Beach. Not really a fan of this style, but had to give it a try. It had a great golden look, but it didn't have a great taste to match. However, I believe this would make a great dinner beer. Especially for the bargain prices you get here
