UPDATED: AUG 1, 2003 Bottled. I found this in a convenience store at the Doral Building on Michigan Avenue, tucked behind the Coors Light tallboys. Tasted it on the train home, since the rush hour schedule wouldn't let me stop over at Flossmoor Station. Drank this from the bottle, so I couldn't tell the color well. But drinking from the bottle did kick up a nice foamy head inside, and there was a fine coating of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Presented a nice wheaty nose when I opened the bottle. The usual clove and banana tastes only became apparent after the first few sips. Between that was a nice malty sweetness balanced unobtrusively by German hops. Further down the bottle, the lemony taste becomes evident, which builds to a nice tartness as it warms up. All in all, a good, tasty beer to find.

Intense, translucent hazy orange, good and pretty dense white head shows good retention and average lacing. Aroma is vividly yeasty with strong banana, slight lemon and clove. Taste is dominantly sweet with the slightest hint of tartness: yeast, bubblegum, strong banana, clove. Light to medium body with fine crispness, very smooth and easy but still quite creamy. It’s a very good weizen in terms of mouthfeel, richness and taste intensity. But it’s very, very sweet, even for the style, almost cloyingly so. A bit too much for my taste.
