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.

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.

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,

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.

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.
