12 oz bottle served in a snifter.

A - apricot-gold in color, like apple juice, with a short-lived small head. Some sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

S - The nose is a rather with a quality more like an adjunct lagr than, say, a typical German Hefeweizen or replica thereof, such as the Baltika 8 that followed this beer.

T: Despite the claim to be a Hefeweizen, this is like a cross of that style with an Amer. lager.

M - Medium-light body; Somewhat low carbonation.

O - Not bad, certainly, but not true to style (no deduction for that in this review) and rather bland and low in flavor.
