COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bavarian style wheat beer that is naturally cloudy and delightfully refreshing. We named it after a local volcanic rock called pumice. So light it floats on water. Drink up and experience a zen-like feeling of lightness.

Thanks to Hayduke for sending this my way. We shared it via Facebook chat with Rick. This beer had a shave cream like foam on top and a clear copper golden body with no carbonation visible. Aroma is cloves and a bit of banana and was light. Flavor was also those cloves and banana. Like it nose, it was light. Flavors are authentic with nothing artificial noted. This is completely inoffensive and very easy to drink to the max. It wold make a great lawn mower beer in the summer heat. The lower ABV is a huge plus for me.

On tap pours out a cloudy yellow which produces a nice fluffy head. It is our tradition to sit on the deck overlooking the slopes of Mammoth. Smells of typical bananas bubble gum and cloves. Tastes of wheat bananas hay and cloves. Light and refreshing.

thetmaxx (732) - West Sacramento, California, USA - APR 1, 2011
Poured into a wiezen style glass. Pours super cloudy, with nuggets of coriander at the bottom. Aroma is wheat, yeast (doughy), and some citrus. Flavour us about the same, not to bitter, maybe even sweet. Palate is medium bodied, kind of on the watery side. Very refreshing on this warm spring day. Overall a fantastic wheat beer.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy pastel yellow with a dense 1/8 inch head. Aroma: Banana and bubble gum followed by a little bit of clove. All aromas are faint. Taste: Dry malt, spice, banana and bread. Mouthfeel: Low to medium fizzy carbonation. Overall: Not my style, but not bad, highly drinkable.

From a bottle at the UCLA game. Color was a pretty clear gold with a smallish head. Aroma of sweet malt, banana, yeast and toast. Flavor was yeasty, wheaty, with toasted malt. Not alot of banana and spice for me. An ok, but forgettable beer.

22oz bottle bought in Mammoth. Overall, probably my favorite of the bunch I tried from Mammoth. At 4.2% ABV, itís a nice session beer with solid banana, clove and wheat flavors, a medium body and more flavor than you expect from such a light beer. Would gladly drink this regularly.

I usually donít like Hefes, so the fact that I found this to be palatable is a little surprising. Still, not my favorite beer.

22oz bottle picked up while in Tahoe. Opaque gole with a lasting creamy white head. Nutty aroma with some ripe banana and honey. Comes together like ripe bananas and honey-nut peanut butter on bread, or maybe banana bread with peanut butter on it. The flavor is lightly sweet and bready with some very light citrus tartness and low bitterness. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel, though a bit too heavy, bringing down refreshment. This is not exactly traditional, and doesnít really taste like anything Iíve had from germany, but itís a pretty cool take on the style that is very drinkable.
