A slightly hazy, yellow beer with a fizzy, white head that dissipated quickly. Wheat aroma with some citrus. Taste has the slight spice of a wheat beer but no complexity. Mouthfeel is prickly, a little harsh.

Overall acceptable, but there are better choices.

12 oz bottle from a mix pack. Its been a very long time since I've had a wheat beer, been kinda craving one, this should be interesting.

A: Lemonade color, almost white, very cloudy, minimal head, no real lacing, could be due to non pristine glassware.

S: Theres that wheaty yeast I've been missing, very sweet with some banana in there. Also has a sweaty/barnyard laundry smell, must be why they call it sweaty b

T: Wheaty/yeasty up front, lot of non-sour lemon (i.e. fake lemon), quite sweet.

M: Low carbonation but for the style seems a bit heavy/rich in body. Alcohol not dominating, not as sessionable as many of this style though.

O: I'm not crazy about the style but this is one of the better offering for the style. These types often taste "cheap" this one doesnt. That said I wont seek it out.

Pours very pale yellow with a bit of haze and a big white head. No retention, no lace.

Bubblegum/banana/yeast/clove notes. Some nutty wheat. THis works.

Not super strong in the flavor dept. Sweet wheat, some yeast, some grain and a little husk bitterness. Finishes with light bitter, carbonated water, and sweet wheat.

A little thin, but still ok.

A decent one, although flawed. The balance of flavor is there, just lacks strength/intensity of flavor.
