It's color is a bit richer and browner than their flagship Weizen offerings, yellow golden hues still shin prominently through. A big white head with a bit shorter retention than one would expect blossoms, releasing an overflow of bubble gum and yeast. Flavor carries heavy bubble gum flavors, followed by some zest and heavy tones of clove and banana. To be honest, its doesn't taste remarkably different than their flagship Weizen. Alcohol is not present. Flavors aren't as sharp as they are in their normal weizen and the yeastiness comes stronger through. I was hoping for a bit more, but its still a good beer.
