3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy orangish color, with a white head. Pleasant enough to drink, notes of several types of unidentifiable fruit. Not my style, but it is still not too bad. However, I will go for something else next time.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a weizen glass.
Appearance: From the pour I got a tall three to four finger head of slow fading stiff foam over a cloudy flat tan/orange colored liquid. Lots of visible carbonation flows up to the head which also makes lots of slick lace patterns on the glass.
Smell: The nose is full of estery, fruity and bready yeast notes.
Taste/Palate: The flavor has loads of tasty wheat character. There is a semi-sweet mix of bread malt, tart wheat and hops with a twist of lemon and green banana peel. The finish leans more to the dry side with a very mild hop presence. Its palate feels lively and well carbonated with a firm medium body.
Notes: This is a lovely showcase of deep wheaty flavor.
