Starts out interesting and then falls flat. Watery and weak wit.

It's been a couple years since I've had this beer but I remember liking it a lot. I hardly ever see it available, I need to get it again and give a better review.

12 oz bottle

Pours hazed and typical Monday Amber, minor hear and just a whisp of fine lace

Faint nose of wheats malts

Light coriander, hint of malt, not much else

This washed down some smoky BBQ, served the purpose, but not much else...

Tastes similar to Franziskaner or even Weihenstephaner! Btw, that is a good thing.

Mostly clear. Pure gold. Very sparse and smaller flecks, but fizzy bubbles make up for that. Slightly off-white foamy yet fizzy head of lesser size but greater retention. Smell is very fruity. Orange peel to the max, other citrus, banana, tiny amount of yeast funk and chemical aroma. Much less sweet to the taste than aromas would indicate, plenty of coriander or related spices, almost clove-like though I suspect for different reasons than in a Hefeweizen, and then strong lemon juice flavors only add to this beer's character. It is still subtly sweet, both with fruit and bread notes. The lightest and most downplayed of pepper notes possibly detectable in the finish. Seems quite different than other more common American takes on this classic style, like Blue Moon's or Shock Top's, though still recognizable, and yet, still not as good-tasting as most craft versions I've encountered. Light-bodied but almost medium, moderately smooth, watery, refreshing, but arguably sudsier than it should be.

Poured into a mug. Color was a light yet cloudy. Smells of hops with a hint of citrus. Carbonation was pleasant and tastes lighter for a witbier than I would prefer, but very refreshing.
