A: This beer pours a cloudy, hazy dark orange color with a 1 1/2 inch soapy, bright white head that leaves some lacing.

S: Smell is very strong of tropical fruit, banana, clove and nutmeg. I also get a faint wheat aroma as well.

T: Taste is a lot like the smell consisting of a very potent tropical fruit/banana flavor that is balanced out by the clove and nutmeg. This beer finishes with a wheat character and a bready dry finish.

M: Very fruity and sweet, has some slight carbonation and is well balanced. Very drinkable if you like the style.

O: This is my first time having this beer that I can remember anyways. I enjoyed it a lot and is a good summer time beer, not sure about releasing it for your fall collection, but not complaining. This is something I will be drinking often this fall, cheers!

12oz bottle purchased at Shaw's as part of the new Samuel Adams Harvest mix-pack. Pours a hazy to murky copper brown body with over an inch of khaki-colored head. Smells nutty and banana notes and hints of spice and lemon-zest and pith. Toasty nuttiness hits first in the flavor, with hints of caramel and toffee, and suggestions of banana and spice. Medium bodied with ample carbonation. Pretty darn drinkable. Not at all a bad example of the style - a welcome addition to the Samuel Adams fall line-up!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a a Czech pilesner glass.

A - Poured a dark amber, copper-like color that made me think of an IPA, was cloudy with a creamy head.

S - Both wheat and malt were there to greet my nose at the first whiff.

T - Some excellent malt sweetness as to be expected from a dunkel, which then gave way to the trademark characteristics of wheat which were highlighted at the end by subtle use of hops.

M - Epitomy of Weiss beer, nice and light swashing around in the mouth easily and going down just as easy.

D - Very high

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of fruits, cloves, and spices. Taste is good, banana, cloves, fruits, lots of flavor. Feels full bodied in the mouth and is highly drinkable. Overall this is a very good beer worth seeking out.
