3.8/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

appearance:
yellow. hazey. golden center . very nice tops. very ornate ,slick head with some minor lace. the head retention is consistant to the last drink. pretty amazing.

smell:
not much to be said here, on pour its all grains , and I didnt detect any signs of malt
maybe some honey. not a strong nose, pleasant, to the point, as with the rest.

taste:
great stuff. has the sharpness i want from wheat beer.but not citrus note to overpower that grainy straw flavour, which is unlike the common wheat beers, I do enjoy a wheat beer with some orange or lemon to it, but this more classic format is what ive been looking for in a wiess. seems very session worthy,

mouthfeel:
starts out very sharp, levels to a good active carb at 2/3rd thru the swallow..
thats when the grains really pan out. has a slight slickness to it that makes it go down easily, but might get slightly filling after a few pints.

overall:
I enjoy most properly made wheat beer. rather or not it has the citrus note so many leading wheat beers use, isnt really relevant to me, I actually enjoy a wheatbeer without the generic "faux citrus" wheaty bit.. and this fits the bill in a great way,
I was hoping to not be dissapointed by this as my gf's father drinks it regularly, and he is a man of taste. I will most certainly be buying this again. and reccommend you do.

12 oz bottle thanks Thorpe. Poured from a bottle to a glass, served at room temperature. Thanks Thorpe.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a retentive white head. Sweet, yeasty nose of banana and spice. Subtle and estery flavor, light yeast and wheat. Medium body, light carbonation. Fairly unremarkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Big head, sticks around with a hazy golden body.
Aroma: Fruity phenols but they're not distinguishable as a particular fruit.
Taste: bready with alcohol and toast.
Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated, spicy.

Paired with a burritos at Cafe 4060 (meters above sea level) in Potosi, Bolivia. Nicely balanced the spiciness and was generally refreshing. I was a bit surprised to notice higher levels of alcohol in it.
