On tap at Stewarts. Pours a cloudy orange/brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of vegetal notes, clove and spices. Flavor of those same notes, lots of spices and vegetal notes. I didn't really enjoy this.

Thanks to Imstillthegman for sending this in Growling at the Moon.

A: Poured a nice hazy brown color into my Blue Moon weizen glass. For a growler a really impressive 2 fingers of white head with some nice lacing.

S: A nice malt sweetness hits you up front. The wheat is there but it is somehow muted. Kind of weird especially for the style. There is only a hint of the dark fruit you expect. But for the low ABV this is a tradeoff I am willing to make.

T: Starts off with a nice blast of malt and wheat. That is what this style is all about so I will allow it. It is a little on the sweet side. You do get a hint of bubblegum in the taste which is always appreciated

M: Medium slightly sticky body. Great carbonation for a growler.

D: I know this style is not for everyone but I love wheat beers. This is a great example of the style and an excellent session beer. Not for everyone but this one is for me.

Presented in a standard pint glass. The beer was a hazy dark brown color with a decent head. The smell was heavy on spices(cloves). This beer tasted like a standard wheat beer. It is heavy on spices and sweetness and not that complex. The beer is light bodied with average carbonation. The beer is quaffable, it would be better on a hotter day.

Served on-tap in a large weizen glass at Stewart's in Bear, DE.

A: The weizen has a deep brown color, cola-like, with lighter coffee (with a hint of cream) colors emerging at narrower points of the glass. The head neared 1 finger but did not retain.

S: The nose is weizen, full of estery aromas darkened by caramel malts. Nothing stands out as exemplary.

T: A sip reveals the darker malts upfront, showcasing a subtle caramel flavor. The esters are strong, creating a clove and bubblegum taste, sugary sweet. Too sweet in my estimation. Some banana fruitiness would be much appreciated as it would eliminate some of the bubblegum.

M: Sickly sweet, this one just didn't do it for me.

D: One tall weizen glass was enough, too sweet for my tastes.

Had this brew cask-conditioned, sweet malty aroma with a head which quickly dissolved. Great dark amber color and a perfect amount of carbonation. Very interesting taste- fleeting banana with a hint of overly sweetened caramel. Full bodied and satisfying but the strong alcohol content with this specific brew kept this serving to a single glass- otherwise first class.

Thanks to egajdzis for picking up the growler...
Appears a cloudy haze of brown with a small white head and scattered lace.
Smell is of bubblegum, wheat, caramel notes, with some chocolate undertones, and clove.
Taste is of the same great aromas only toned down a notch.
Mouthfeel is slightly thin and acidic but the full flavors comes through to make it a solid beer.
