4.13/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Pale, straw yellow, good clairty, and bubbly. Moderately thick white head with great retention. <4.5>

S - Strong, sweet banana aroma and bready malt character. <5>

T - Begins sweetly and malty, as the aroma would suggest. However, it gets bitter in a hurry. The taste of pine needles leads to a rather dry finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste, which mellows with alcohol remnants and the banana sweetness returns. <4>

M - Fairly light body, carbonation is slightly present. <4>

O - A tad on the bitter and dry side for a wheat offering. The contrast between the smell and the taste is quite perplexing, it certainly gives me pause, especially without a date on the label. <3.5>

3.08/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Nice foam-up in the tall glass. Light golden in color. Not much body but has a pleasant wheaty character.

Fairly malty with a touch of sweetness. Pleasant enough with some faint rich malty grain flavors. Ends with an earthy bitter note. Something like a malt liquor with a touch of hops. Rather sharp and dirty.

Not bad, for the American wheat style, but not a memorable beer experience. Devoid of any yeasty or estery flavors, but clean and well made. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Grapevine Liquors in Denver.
