3.58/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Look: Dark red brown with a large light brown head. Fades quickly to a thin layer but leaves lots of lacing around the glass

Smell: Strong smell of hops, pungent banana and pineapple, wet grass and hay.

Taste: Dark fruits, hay, grassy and earthy notes, hops are almost gone but they still give a little bite near the end.

Mouthfeel: Strong carbonation right up front and very smooth after that.

Overall this is a strange beer, a special dry hopped edition of the Wijs this should be a dunkelweizen but I honestly can't quite place it anywhere.
It's not a good example of the style but it's an interesting beer. The flavour is a little tame and I'd have liked a bit more of a hop punch in there. Had that been the case this would be a strange and pretty damn good beer.

At the very least I can say I've never had anything quite like it.
