Got this one in a mixed 12 pack. This is my first time trying this beer but i love this style so i hope this beer doesn't disappoint. Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a lionel train weizen glass.

A- Pours straight copper, with 4 fingers worth of off white head that turned into a thin layer that stayed the whole time. Looks good.

S- Pretty tame, i was excepting more cloves and bananas then i got, a little bit of sweet caramel malts barely show up.

T- Spices and a slight clove taste are the first to show up and a slightly sweet and pretty bitter aftertaste that stays for a while. The flavors aren't close to as bold as i would like and banana really didn't show up.

M- Thicker then it should be and it felt a little over carbonated. The after taste sucked.

D- I wouldn't drink more then one of these due to lack of flavor and bad after taste.

Overall this beer was a let down. I love this style but Sam Adams didn't give it the justice it deserves. Everything about this beer felt held back. Go back to the drawing board and drink some good german examples for inspiration. Wont be getting this again.
