Swing top bottle thanks to lb4lb. Been a while since I have had a decent wheat. Murky orange yellow with decent head. Bubble gum and clove on the aromas. Wheat twang on the flavor. Some yeasty bready flavors as well. Not too bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden, slightly hazy with a nice head. The aroma is thin with notes of wheat and banana. This rather thin feeling continues in the flavour that has the same notes. I would like some power, body and personality in this otherwise inoffensive wheat.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Swing top -- Poured quite deep golden, almost muddy, with a thick tightly-packed head of small foam. The flavor is richly bready with a thick maltose essence. That aroma sullies the flavor. With a pinched nose, the yeasty fruitiness comes thru. But drinking normally, the musty maltiness overtakes it, and it takes on the character of a well used wet rag. Not my favorite weizen.

From 12 oz. flip top bottle- poured cloudy light golden, thin lacing head. Aroma of yeast and a touch of sweetness. Hits the mouth with a bit watery, thin body, a touch of sweetness on the finish. Drinkable on a hot day, not sure on a regular basis though.

Pours a hazy pale bronze with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Has a semi-sweet wheaty nose with some clove and banana character. Starts with some sugary sweetness and banana esters along with a mild bready yeastiness toward the finish. A little thin and one-dimensional.
