Tulip glass.

A: Pours pale color with two fingers of dense, beautifully formed head with generous, sticky lacing. Brilliant clarity, excellent retention. Champagne like effervescence.

S: Pear, generic hops, slightly sweet pale malt, a little pepper, honey-soaked pineapple. A fairly potent aroma.

T: Grainy wheat and malt, notes of apple and pineapple, and an undertone of nondescript hops and mildly sweetish malt. Finishes with a mild bitterness.

M: Medium body, slightly creamy texture, with medium-high carbonation.

O: Pretty tasty, fairly drinkable, and by no means a typical wheat beer. Solid but nothing to wow you with.

A big surprise for me here. I am not typically a wheat beer guy, but this one was a real eye opener.
Ice cold pour from bottle into a Sam Adams glass. Bright, clear orange color with a moderate snow white head. Lacing remained through out the glass and carbonation was a little on the light side for me.
A cornacopia of aromas with this one! Opened the bottle to a very bright pine / citrus smell. After the pour , got the true smell of pineapple and mango. Only improved as the temperature of the beer rose.
The taste was just the right level of fruity / maltiness - with the strong flavor of pineapple and mango showing through. Nice Hoppy bite at the finigh that lingered for just the right amount of time!

Surprise, surprise - maybe I am a wheat ale guy after all...
