Very light yellow, think Wit... Mild white foamy head, leaves mild lacing...

Crisp, fart aroma, lots of wheat.

Thin, very light, not much substance or flavors. Wheat-y, but extremely light. Missing many flavors... crisp, harsh carbonation. Very wet and bready.

Not recommended. I can think of many other canned Wheat brews which I'd much rather enjoy. Disappointing Dry Dock would put this brew in a Mix-12...They can do much better.

12 oz can. Pours hazy straw gold with a small white head that quickly disappears.

The aroma is sweet wheat malts, banana and a little clove spicing.

The flavor is wheaty malts with some sweet fruit and banana and some earthy yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, an OK hefe. Lots of banana and wheat. Sweet and watery.

Not a very good hefe. Very week and minimal flavor.

A-Poured into a weizen glass, we have a beer with a finger of white tight bubbled foam with little lacing and no staying power atop a clear straw yellow appearance with a light green tint.
S-Nice bready malt with a fair amount of clove-y phenols. Light on the banana ester character but it's there too.
T-Nice malty bready quality. Not as much phenolic, spicy, yeasty flavor here but a pretty clean flavor profile.
M-A bit low on carbonation for the style. Low to moderate body, not very silky with a clean finish.
O-A bit of a boring hefe. Easy drinker but nothing stands out. I like it but there are many better options out there.

1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a nonical pint glass in me gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are high given the brewery, which I'm increasingly growing to fancy.

Served straight from the refrigerator and allowed to warm slightly over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a four finger head of white colour, slight cream, okay thickness, and good retention (though the ABV is below average). A murky hazy pale yellow colour. Nontransparent. Nonopaque. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Lemon, banana, clove, clean wheat, and fruit peel. Light fruit hopping. A delightfully fresh aroma. I'm impressed. Moderately strong. Very inviting for the style.

T: Very fresh and enjoyable. Lemon, banana, clove, a wheat foundation, and indistinct fruit (possibly orange) peel. Somewhat simple, but pleasant. I like it, but it's not fantastic. The aroma promised a better flavour. Some nice subtlety, but little complexity. Hints of yeast and light hopping.

Mf: Smooth and wet, suiting the flavour. Adequate carbonation. Adequate thickness. Suits the flavours fairly well.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable, but not great. A solid offering from Dry Dock, but not an ideal one. I'd try it on draught. Low ABV. Very refreshing. A great summer brew.

B-

A poor candidate for aging.

Once again, this was included in the sampler pack, so I drank it. Not a wheat guy, but this one wasn't bad at all. Very strong banana flavor, so if you're into that you will probably really like this beer.
