12 oz. bottle from Magic Hats "Feast of Fools" 12 pack.
Appearance - Good golden color, very cloudy, as is fitting for an unfilitered wheat. I poured half into a mug, swirled then poured the other half. Hopefully it was my fault, but the head was extremely extremely weak, doesn't leave any traces on the side of the glass. The top was completely barren before I was finished...really not what I expected from a Weizen. I'll try again with a fresh bottle later.
Smell - Sweetly bready, banana bread. No hoppy aroma. The nose is subtle.
Taste - The fruity, lightly citrusy sweetness is balanced in the mouth by a touch of bitter. Hops taste is not noticeable. The aftertaste is bready, a bit sweet. Dry finish.
Mouthfeel - Mid-high carbonation, dry finish. Moderately light mouthfeel.
Drinkability - I was really disappointed in the lack of fully, wheaty head. The nose and taste are subtle, but appropriate for the style. A bit weak all in all, but that does make it easy to drink.

pours out a hazed gold colour with the addition of the dregs. little head with poor retention. the addition of lemongrass accentuates the overall already lemony aroma. definitely fruity. the taste is more of the same. while not a true hefe, there are some shared characteristics. underneath the lemony facade there is bits and pieces of hay and grass with some slight spicy notes. american pale wheat for sure, with a noticeable back end bitterness. this is a unique tasting beer. medium bodied with a coarse mouthfeel. drinkability is nice. would be really awesome to quench a thirst in the summertime.
overall, this is a twist on the american wheat style that leans heavily on the lemon quenching aspects. i picked this up on clearance for a really low price, and had it been summer, i would have bought multiple cases.
