The proper title should be American Strong Wheat Ale! Weizenbock strength! From the bottle, it pours a golden color with a nice head. Dangerously easy to drink!

12oz bottle in pint glass. Not my usual style, but one of the best hop flavors I've had, and balanced tastefully against the rest. Delicious! Really easy drinking for a wheat. From the description it seems like maybe it's still 50% barley; maybe that's why.

No date, purchased in December 2014, reviewed 12/31/2014.

Appearance: Dark gold/extremely pale copper; 1/4" foamy off-white head. Very active carbonation, very nice retention - a "pillowy" 1/8" off-white cap. Outstanding lacing.

Aroma: Whiff of grapefruit as soon as I pour it. VERY citrusy and sweet.

Taste: Clean, slightly sweet arrival Fruity, but not excessively so. Clean, with a touch of alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Weighty, but not viscous. Not too much carbonation. Quite soft.

Overall: I could make this a regular summer IPA; it doesn't bowl me over with the bitterness, but it is PLENTY fruity and quite refreshing.
