3.49/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured this into a Weizen glass and the brew makes about a three fingers thick of great sustaining foam presence, and has a hazy golden colored body. Looks like a good hefeweizen to me.

The aroma has a hint of sour tartness, clove, and bubble gum.

Taste wise there is a mix of zesty lemony hops, and a tinge of wheat malt character trying to pop thorugh. Perhaps banana flavor is trying to peak through.

Feels medium in body, and mildly carbonated. A little oily slick too.

Can courtesy of Trent, yet again.

It pours a hazy straw yellow with a 1 finger head of foam.

A big nose of wheat greets my nosebuds and I can smell an underlining aroma of hop bitterness.

First sip, second sip, third sip...now that is one tasty American Pale Wheat. No bells or whistles, just a down home lovely taste of wheat with what I'd call an earthy bitterness.

Smooth as silk going down cuz the mouthfeel is so good.

I say, yummy!

A- Pours a hazy yellow, which I absolutely love. A finger of white head recedes to a halo of white around the glass that persists throughout. This leaves some nice lacing on the glass.

S- Yeast dominates the smell on this one. It is backed up by some citrus hops, and maybe a bit of "barnyard" smell (hay, barn, grains). This may be off-putting to some.

T- Nice and lemony, very refreshing. The yeast makes an appearance early and really lingers throughout the drink. There is some spice in there from the hops and/or the wheat. It imparts a peppery effect. I get a lingering after-taste from the grain that is not unpleasant. Reminds me of toffee or a light salted caramel.

M- This one is highly carbonated and crisp, which I like in a beer that is obviously made with late spring/summer in mind.

O- Solid offering from Schlafly, and my first foray into a wheat beer that features the hops. I'm a big fan of this one, particularly on a hot, humid, sticky summer day in St. Louis.
