This was some horrible tasting swill. Way over-carbonated and smelled and tasted sour. I took two sips and poured this frog piss down the drain!

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of lots of sweet but artificial banana, some slight grain, yeast, hints of slight bready and a touch of fruit but the banana is dominant. Taste is a mix of yeast, banana, nice bread, biscuit, hints of grain, vanilla, slight fruit, finishing sweet, slightly milky from the yeast.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is some slight citrus with some bubblegum sweetness. Flavor is light wheat malts with some lemon juice sourness. This was deffinaly more of an wheat ale then a German hefe. It may have been infected with the high head and sourness.

12 oz bottle pours a clear orange/yellow with a head that completely disappears. It’s skunked. Drain pour. Total bummer.

This is a solid wheat and one of the best beers from Crabtree. Has the typical wheat appearance and body, but the taste and aroma are somewhat unique. The flavor is defined by wheat, but there is an interesting sweetness, part banana, part citrus fruit that keep you coming back. Great summer beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - moderate haze and high carbonation - nose is heavy on the dry, spice phenols (clove, sage), but there is an undercurrent of lightly sweet wheat malt and mild banana - quite inviting, really - light to medium body, with a moderate acidity - quite dry and spicy, with strong peppery phenols and a crisp, crackery maltiness - light toasty wheat - finish is bone dry, dusty, almost flinty, with lingering spiciness, light hop character and a bit of lemon/citrus - there is something about the finish that tastes more Belgian than hefe - maybe the particular yeast character - either way, this beer is solid - not quite a traditional hefe, but it is really hitting the spot right now.
