look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: One finger head. Dark yellow color.

S: Light. Wheaty.

T: Very different. My first impression was, "whoa." I mean that in neither a good way nor a bad way. I've simply never had a beer with such a bready aftertaste.

M: It goes down smooth but drops a bale of wheat
on the back of your tongue on the way down.

O: I like it. Very different than anything my young pallet has ever tasted before. Good balance. I can hear the hops but they're not blowing out my eardrums. Might not be an all-time-great beer but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Poured into a glass mug. First time drinking it.

A- Golden yellow. Bubbles streaming up. One finger head that fizzles down, but leaves a little bit. Not much lacing. Looks good.

S- Bready, malts, some hops. Fresh smelling.

T- Wow, this has a very bready and malty taste. It has a very little hops, but it has enough slight hop bitterness to mellow out the malty taste. A very nice balance. Slightly bitter, just the right amount.
Aftertaste is nicely bready and slight hop, but clean.

M- Clean, light, crisp. Carbonation is moderate.

Drinkability- Very drinkable. It flows so smoothly.

O- Overall, I'm very impressed by this Austrian beer. Very tasty. This was a fantastic surprise.

(have a bit of a cold...but here goes)

A - clear straw with a small head which dissipates quickly. Little lacing

S - sweet, malty, fruity maybe? - mild and pleasant

T - cookies and malt. The wheaty flavor is mild but balanced by slight background hops. Enjoyable and tasty even if it's not too complex

M - mildly carbonated. There is a rich mouthfeel that lingers and adds body but leaves no bitterness or cloying aftertaste.

O - Definitely a very nice beer. This is one I'll buy again and one I'll offer to friends. An excellent way to pull people up out of the miry clay of Miller/Bud/Coors.
