3.33/5 rDev -7.5%
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Sept. 14, 2012 (purchased at BevMo! In La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) for a variety12-pack price of $13.99 (w/ card) on Sept. 14, 2012). Finger or head. Golden pale with white head. Good retention on the top, none on the sides.
Smelled grass, lemon, honey, bread, cereal and hay. Surprisingly not too bad.
A lot more grassier taste than the smell. Got grass, bread, cereal, hay, honey and earth. Slight lemon sweetness on back end.
Light body. Thin texture. Above average carbonation. Long, grassy, watery finish. Refreshing.
OK for a wheat beer. Refreshing and a good summer brew.

12oz bottle, pours clearer than expected, golden with a white head that holds good retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aromas are wheat, yeasty, faintly herbal. Tastes are wheat, lemongrass, yeast. Mouth-feel is medium and smooth. Overall, I thought this was slightly better than average for the style.

4.13/5 rDev +14.7%
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>
