Served from 12 oz can into a small weizen glass at Swig and Swine BBQ restaurant in West Ashley SC. Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a very small white head and minimal lacing (frosted glass). Aroma and flavor include plenty of yeast and wheat bitterness. Some spicing, cloves and a little banana but it is more Witbier than Hefe. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Probably a better choice for a summer day outdoors than with a heavy BBQ dinner, but I still enjoyed it. The flavor held up fine.

I'm not a wheat fan but I picked up a sixer for a day on Sullivan's Island and it went very well with a hot day and a lazy surf. Not a ton of yeasty Flavors like clove or peppercorn but more a bubblegum and wheat malt. Very light feel but not watery, I drank through all six with very little damage and a good time.

I love this beer. The texture is smooth with a frothy creaminess. What a wheat beer should be.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, pale egg yolk-colored body with an inch of airy foam. It's a nice lookin' wheat.

Smell: Cereal sweet tinged wheat with a very scant toastiness. Light lemon, 'nana. Touches of clove and a faint kiss of herb.

Taste: Wheat malt, just a bit bready and a little bit of crisp toastiness. Medium-low sweetness. Soft lemon, banana and clove converge at the mid-point. Very low hop character, bitterness. The flavors just sort of drift away as you head towards the finish with a final lil' zip of suds.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation. Slight creaminess to the mouthfeel.

Overall: It's a decent enough wheat.

Straw colored with a white, though short-lived, head.
Smell is sweet, malty, bready with hints of apple & white grape. Nicely balanced but a touch overly sweet.
Taste is almost a direct copy of the olfactory picture, malt, bready, sweet, apple, grape & light honey notes mixed thoroughly. Sweetness is a bit overdone but not enough to whinge about.
Body is over medium but not far, carbonation is restrained for the style but not overly so. Good stuff.
