Crisp and slightly hazy golden coloured body with a very thin, half a centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of very subdued malt, wheat, grass and a ton of corn - this smells like cornbread with some hints of bubble gum and lemons. Super light-bodied; Strong lemon and grassy flavours up front show an almost belgian white or wheat ale flavour coupled with some spicey yeast highlights make it more interesting, but all super light and thin. Aftertaste shows some bitterness from the yeast, plus a bit of the spices a well. Overall, a very light and subdued beer with a lot of flavour but no deep complexity or pungency, all with a super light and easily approachable body and taste - nice. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Cary, North Carolina on 02-August-2014 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 16-November-2014.

Bottle at home. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is wheat malt, banana esters and spicy cloves. Flavor is wheat malt, sweet banana esters, cloves, no hops or bitterness and a sweet finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Cloudy light amber with a thin head cover, thin bands of lace. Taste is wheat and malt that shows clove and bubbkegum in the palate, moving on to a finish with just a touch of bitters. A lot of taste for the abv, easy-drinking, good on hot summer days.

Very refreshing beer to have on a hot summer day, very light and kind of sweet with some fruit notes as well.

JaKeAFC (579) - ITALY - AUG 3, 2014
35 cl bottle, 5.6%, 2.30€. Gassy bottle, pours pale yellow, hazed, enormous expandig soapy white head, spicy and fruity nose. Aroma: dunghy wheat, loads of yeast, earth, leafy hops, ripe banana, citrus, spices. Taste is sweetish, mild balance, tart. Medium bodied, quite thick texture, heavily carbonated. Lemony finish with fuel notes already. OK weizen from oversea, but far away from German ones.
