look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
12oz bottle poured into a Blue Moon weizen pint glass the traditional way by turning the glass upside down over the bottle then turning the bottle upside down in the glass and slowly lifting it up.
AP: Pale straw colour with light gold highlights, can see through the beer as there's no sediment so this has to be a filtered weisse beer. Fluffy white 1" head after pour that dissipates down to 1/4" with some slight lacing when glass is tilted.
AR: Banana, lemon, hay/straw, spices like clove and coriander. Getting bubblegum on the 2nd whiff.
T: Similar to the nose but the bubblegum is more prominent than the banana or lemon. The spices are quite assertive in this with clove, coriander and a touch of allspice as well. I like how they amped the spices in this. Finish is very yeasty.
M: Moderately carbonated, crisp and a bit tingly on the tongue, finishes kind of dry.
OV: It would be unkind to compare this to any true German Weizen/Weisse like Weihenstephaner, but it's decent. Very sessionable, could easily knock off a 6pk on a warm Summer day. Has enough flavour to keep you interested, though it all kind of disappears on the finish. Once you taste the spices on the first sip they sort of fade as your palate gets used to them. Given a choice I'd go with a German over this, but I sure wouldn't complain if this was the best choice of beer at a party or BBQ.

Bottled on 04/11/14, poured into weizen glass:
Pours hazed straw yellow with a fluffy head that soon descends to a thin cap. Spotted lacing sticks.
The smell is of banana, lemon, hint of clove, sour wheat tang.
The taste is of wheat crackers, sweet grain, mild banana/clove. A sour character balances the sweetness. There is a slightly metallic, floral finish.
Crisp and refreshing, but not as creamy as other examples of the style. The body leans more towards that of a typical American Pale Wheat Ale, but it works well enough.
Overall, it's between a light hefe and a stronger Berliner weiss. Decent.
