22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of funky yeast, wheat malt and sour apples. Body is medium and crisp. Very sour, yeasty taste with wheat malt and fruity notes in the background. Finish is very sour. I think this brew is infected. Or maybe it is new style: Sour Heffeweizen.

Poured into pint glass.

A - Poured cloudy slightly transparent orange yellow color with huge tan head that slowly dissipated leaving moderate lacing around the glass.

S - Citrus fruits and floral hops and wheat dominate with light scents of malts and grass.

T - Starts off very bready with wheat and grass, and sugar followed by citrus fruit flavor and a slightly bitter and sour hoppy finish.

M - Light bodied with high carbonation.

O - Very good and refreshing hefeweizen. Overall a good job by Climax. I would recommend it.
