Tasted On: 04-11-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 500ml brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Purchased: Single from Liquor Express, Huntsville AL
Appearance is a somewhat hazy honey color topped by a tall white head. The head has very good retention and a fair amount of lacing.
Aromas are sweet and bready, with the expected fruitiness of bananas from the yeast.
The taste is malty and lightly sweet with tropical fruit flavors.
The mouthfeel is light in body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The finish is mildly sweet and fruity.
Overall a light and refreshing wheat beer that I'd have again.

3.58/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from 500mL bottle into a weizen glass.
Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and a very strong effervescence. Head is three fingers of pillowy tan foam. It's both darker and less hazy than I usually see in the style, but overall the whole package is pretty attractive.
Smell: sweet aroma with distinct wheat and barley malt character. There's a little bit of banana here, and the overall effect is very breakfasty. The sweetness is a little oppressive, though.
Taste: sweet malt with a very cereal-like quality and a tiny bit of clove character -- it's spicier than the aroma. The aftertaste has a very Wheat Chex kind of a flavor going on: not bad, but not something I'm going after. It's a balanced beer; it just doesn't suit my palate particularly.
Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a strong carbonation and big, satisfying creaminess. Bam!
Overall: this is not so bad a beer, but the flavor has this cereal-like quality that I don't love. It's not off-putting, per se, but I just don't see myself looking for this beer again.
