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.

Bottle from a little shop next to Safeway in Truckee, CA. Poured a yellow color with a slight haze. Massive amounts of lemon flavor with a hint of banana. Overall an average brew.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 While perhaps my original bottle was tainted, overall this beer seems overrated.The aroma and appearance are there, but the body just seems lacking. Not that great. Original score 1.0 Smells like orangey wheat. Pretty cloudy. This was not good at all. Tangy with a sour lemon bite, nothing about this is good. All I can say based on the scores of others is that perhaps this bottle was tainted.

Bomber from South Bay Drug. Hazy lemon color with very little white head. Aromas of grain and citrus. Banana as the glass approaches the lips. Not quite medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is grain, mild banana, mild spice. Not spectacular, but likely refreshing on a hot day.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - DEC 23, 2008
A typical hefewezen with the usual suspects: Wheat, banana, and a little bit of spice. A pleasant walnut flavor also appears. Okay, better than the typical hefeweizen. Overall, good.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Very clear light color with a thin, quickly diminishing foam. Orange zest aroma, with foul smells of cream corn. Super sour and foul, lacking yeast character. Lots of cream corn and other foul notes. Grainy and poor for the style. Very poor.

AmEricanbrew (5523) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Hazy gold with a white head. Decent yeasty peppery citrusy aroma. Medium body. Flavor is lightly sweet grainy malt with a touch of tart wheat and sweet spices. Not too bad.

DarkElf (3028) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 19, 2008
18-Aug-08 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 12-May-08 for $3.49 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Bright orange in color and very hazy in the glass, but the whitish head pours very small, almost filmy, and settles to a thin ring, which is surprising given the loud rush of carbonation gasses when the cap was popped. The beer smells lemony and very cheesy immediately after pouring from the bottle, but soon tacks on bready and mildly dusty tones as well. Fortunately, the cheesiness blows off for the most part, that is, unless the glass is swirled. On the palate, the beer is fairly uniform from start to finish, presenting a pleasant weave of tart lemon, bready malts, sweet, perfectly ripe banana, and a touch of bubble gum. In terms of flavor balance, it’s perhaps a touch too lemony, but given how "big" the malt and wheat components seem to be on the palate, the tart citrus is necessary as the resulting acidity combined with the high carbonation makes this beer refreshing and lively on the palate. Otherwise, the medium body of the wheat and malt base might become heavy and dense on the palate after several sips. The stated 4.2% is rather shocking considering how "big" this beer feels without exhibiting overwhelming sweetness. Really, that’s quite impressive. A thick mud pie of sludgy sediment remains stuck to the bottom of the bottle. Overall, this is a pretty enjoyable wheat beer. Stylistically, it’s too citrusy and the base is a bit heavy, but it all works very nicely and I’ve had no problem downing the entire bomber. Recommended.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2008
bottle from irishboy: pours a cloudy yellow hay colour witha big thick white head. aroma is a nice light wheat with all the qualities of a good hefe clove, banana and touches of the bubblegum. very nice. flavour is a bit sticky an d light in the characteristics form the aroma the clove seems to get lost in a sweet whaeaty malt and the bubblegum does not come thru at all just hints. the beer does finish a little better with some creaminess on the palate. ok hefe but the flavours seem to meld together to much and dont shine seperatley.
