Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a very thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, wheat, light caramelized malts and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a decent burst of hops bitterness that is quickly followed by sweet flavors of citrus, caramel and bananas. Then some breadiness comes in from wheat and a thin malt character creating a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a long time.

A - Hazy efervescent pale body with foamy white head. Very good retention and lacing.

S - Citrus

T - Dry wheat start, floral and citrus hops, and earthy grassy finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Clean with slight stickiness in the aftertaste.

O - Really enjoyable brew, especially when a bomber is on sale for $1.99!

Poured into my weizen glass, this beer was a gold color. with a medium-sized sticky white head. The head lingered nicely.

Aroma of fruit, floral hops, and spice.

The taste followed form. Banana, bread, a little spice, with that little kick of hops.

This was a nice beer, and it did a great job quenching my thirst. Usually not too much of a fan of this style, but would try this again.
