Iím not sure what to make of this one. Itís a very hoppy version of what what seems like a poke at a German wheat. At 6%, itís too big to be session or hot weather beer. And despite the obvious nods to Bavarian origins the phenols and other fruit flavors are obscured by the robust hop flavors. Even the fruit flavors of melon and apricot are over-sharpened by a stark acidity. Why didnít they stick with citric flavors if they were using high acidity? Despite what seems like a train wreck in some respects, this beer is endearing for what it is.

Bottle from BevMo. Light wheaty nose. Somewhat sweet, with some yeastiness. Sweet graininess up fromt. Fairly thick and smooth. Some sweet yeasty notes in there as well. A little spiciness to go with a touch of hoppiness in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice sunset orange, slightly hazy with a nice white head that collars well. Sweet malt and esters on a nice nose, good banana as well. Medium-full yeasty mouthfeel which coats the sides of the tongue but disappears quickly. Nice banana and wheaty taste. This is like a jacked-up hefeweizen. Very crisp dry finish. Really enjoyed this on a hot summer evening.

Sample at Rubicon on 8/7/10. Pours a hazy gold with a medium white head. Aroma of banana and wheat malt; not much else. Sweet malty flavor with a bit of spice and banana along with wheat.

Not to get all scientific but this beer is crap. I was duped into buying it based on a recomendation, but ended up having to wash this shit taste out of my mouth with some miller highlife I had laying around.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cloudy orange pour wit h dish soap head. Toasty bread aroma. Yeasty and sour. Alcohol flavor underlies it all. Palate is light and oily with soft carbonation and an astringent finish. I am not enjoying this beer. [12 BM]
