On-tap at Kuhnhenn. Not really sure how to classify this. Served in a taster stange.

A - White foam settles to a partial cap and thick collar, leaving behind a few splotches of lazy. Murky apricot juice.

S - Lots of fruity notes, with pineapple and peach dominating - is there brett in this? Some sharp wheat and banana esters as well.

T - The taste is quite similar, with unmalted wheat and typical weizen yeast at first, but then yielding to lightly sour fruit juice flavors - apple and peach? Alcohol presence is minimal.

M - Grainy, unfiltered wheat, texture, with lower carbonation. Medium in body, and slightly juicy. No alcohol noticeable here either.

D - Really interesting, and oddly easy to drink for 7%. I wish Snarling Badger had tasted like this. I grabbed a growler and it was a nice beer to return to during our tasting.
